So, tomorrow I pick up 2 Octanes 1s that were auctioned on ebay as dead for £30. They look utter crap and the only reason I bid on them is that that are located in Stourbridge.. So if I go upstairs and look out the window, I can probably see the building they are housed in.

Worst scenario.. everything is buggered and I get some hdd cages & skins.

Best.. mmm cool software, working systems.. etc etc...

The night before Christmas.. I can't sleep!!!

Good luck!

I had a look at a couple of listings, but I'm in a crappy location for anything listed with "collection only" :/

Having said that, I don't have any more space under my desk for anything else at the moment!

No hdd or Cages..

Both PSU popped

one has 512Mb made up of 4 128MB, the other 2GB made up of 8 256MB

One had a working Light bar though, which was a find.. :-|

Light bars are easy to fix with a couple of LED's and a couple of resistors, HDD and cages shouldn't be too much of an issue either...

PSU's might be repairable, otherwise there's a Cherokee on ebay at the moment at £40.

Failing that, I'm sure Mr Mapleson can sort you out :)

Presumably the skins are crap? And the CPUs are 175s? And the graphics are rock bottom SIs? :cry:

Not sure what CPUs are, I haven't matched with any pictures or taken the CPU apart that much.. the are probably 4Mhz 8080s

Skins.. well.. Door has fell off one, one was dropped and the board removing (plunger/grip/lever)s in each corner has been SMOSHED!

To be honest they both look like they served on a North Sea Oil Rig... in the open!
Still on reflection...

Cost.. £30..

Fuel Cost.. £0.10

Experience of taking Octane apart.. 10/10 No idea of cost..

Replacing my broken Bar Light (On my super duper Octane 2).. + £10 ?

Spare parts for the future... £100 I reckon...

OOOH I forgot to mention.. joy of meeting the owners of the shop and the Westie K9 where I picked them up from.. + 10 points..

So as crap as they are.. It's been a positive if yet slightly disappointing (at the moment) transaction.

BTW.. did you get round to running Jeleo?
