Nekochan.Net link from forum? Why is it not here?

Just curious as to why there is no direct link from the forums to the Nekochan main page. Would make things a lot easier, I think.

Just a suggestion. ;)

Newer drives will have greater areal density. Spindle speeds tend to indicate greater areal density and thus greater throughput is found, regardless of SCSI rev. What is most likely an issue is the CD-ROM bound to the same chain as the drive. I am theorizing here since I don't know the technical asp...

bobfloppy states: Wow, now we're three people looking for drive sleds... So, a triumvirate then? Shall we each look out for a cache of O2 drive sleds for each other with the finder obviously taking first pick of the cache finding? I may have to do that overseas shipping thing, though. I'm wanting an...

Wow, we should start up an O2 Upgrader's Union or something. ;) Thanks, somecodemonkey. I'll check into that although I may go elsewhere, if only because I want it faster than it'd likely be shipped over to the States. </impatience> max_impact, if you end up getting something faster, I may can take ...

O2 desires. Anyone? Beuller? Beuller? Beuller? ;)

So, I have an O2 now. Unfortunately, I don't have enough disk space. For now, I'll likely retain the old 4.5GB drive in it and get a second 30-70GB drive as a secondary video-only drive. Later I will rip the old drive out and get something a bit speedier. But this leaves the problem of not having a ...

You might try finding an old drafting table. I have one that's 4' x 6' and it's been a wonderful table. Just turn the table down horizontally and set up your equipment. I have a 100lb 24" sgi monitor on it now, a printer and a 17" Micron monitor on it now. It's held much more than this in the past. ...

Did you fail to see my statement on major OEMs? Perhaps I should have clarified a bit more. I can see where my statement might infer that AMD chipsets are less than desirable. That statement should be "chipsets that are on AMD systems are less than desirable". Sure, you are using a genuine AMD chips...

Well, I've been a semi-lurker for about a month. I was linked to this forum from another forum that has a seller's area. And violá!

At any rate, I purchased an ancient O2 today and hope to be posting more in the future.

Well, personally, I normally make it a practice to not join or read sites with avatars. I've found that on general, those places are just way too problematic and juvenile. However, this place is a bit different. I've pondered getting an sgi machine for some time now. Finally, I have done so this aft...

semi-fly, I hope you aren't being serious and this is you just being coy. ;)

Do you not realize that Microsoft had the MSBlaster fix out since the middle of July? Surely you can't think that MS released this thing.

BTW, <3 fBSD.

I agree Satoru. I wasn't impressed by it. Perhaps it was my unrealistic expectation for it to be Real Good or something. I dunno. Not that it was garbage, mind you. I just didn't think it was worth my time. In fact, I bought it the day it was released--watched every episode until the very last one a...

IIRC, the OS that Lain uses prevalently is a variant on the BeOS GUI. One thing to note: at the end of each episode is the oh-so-familiar "to B e continued..."--the old BeOS logo. The Japanese loved BeOS, BTW. All of this is just a friendly, FYI. :) I just happened to look down just now and realized...

To get new PC hardware almost as durable and stable will cost you at least as much as a new Fuel. I've seen this echoed in many places, this board is but one of them. I understand the strengths of sgi hardware but I think many people echo the weaknesses of a few million x86 'enthusiasts' who believ...
