I've seen a few styleguides as a professional and this one is nice.

Have you considered an editorial styleguide as well?

Where can I find the first issue?

I've probably overseen the installation of 200 HP-UX machines in the last month. I did an inventory of another 200-400 last week (I don't know the exact number since I inventoried all the UNIX machines). The B2000 isn't too bad. A C3700 is what you'd like, I imagine. I don't recall offhand if the B2...

nekonoko, I had a SmartUPS 1400 that died a few years ago. I never got around to replacing the battery. I eventually left it with a roomie when I moved from SF. I currently have a rackmount SmartUPS 1000. Not horribly great but it does the job I need it to do right now. I gave my mother a Belkin one...

Basically, it's better to have them within one manufacturing cycle of each other. However, in practice, you shouldn't see any difference. I'm not entirely sure I would be using any product with the Apollo Pro 133. For reference: Tom's Hardware (Yeah, Dr. Tom is an a**hole but oh well, the data here ...

While it's true that more drives in a RAID 0 array increase the chances of data loss--whether through a broken stripe or a dead drive/controller--it isn't quite doubled or quadrupled. Basically, the long and short of it can be found here . Understanding that this is only the reliability of the hardw...

It likely had one of the longest lived chipsets (in the x86 world) ever made. The 440BX. It would only do AGP 2X.

I still have one in my server in TX.

Just to clarify.

AGP 1X is 266MB/s
AGP 2X is 533MB/s
AGP 4X is 1.06GB/s
AGP 8X is 2.1GB/s
AGP 16X is 4.2GB/s

So, in 1997 AGP 1X only ran at 266MB/s.

Yeah, as you were describing the problem I was thinking PSU. I don't scrimp on PSUs... and haven't had to replace one in many many years. I just recently spent a wallop on one that I slapped into an old withered O2 skins for a PC mod. Yes, I'm sure to be blasphemed by many on this forum now. Oh well...

I second looking at the 80-68 pin adapter.

Another option is to look at your termination. Is the drive running in SE mode or what?

hamei, are you able to determine any numbers on the graphics chipset?

Post them here and we may can find something useful.

Oh... back OT, what was the problem with the "gaming PC" gamerKarl?

I know I've gotten my Xbox to run on the O2. I just plugged in the S-Video cable to the O2 from the Xbox and viola.

Unfortunately, I'm in the middle of a move from TX to MI and both the O2 and Xbox are back in TX. :(

hamei states:
Thanks, but I'm pretty well set on at least a 10k rpm drive. When I put one into the O2 it made such a difference I was shocked.

Funny how when I stated this about 5 months ago, people thought I was a nut claiming incremental increases which were noticeable...

Oh well. ;)
