The Bullshit keeps falling down...

Unread postby unixmuseum » Tue Feb 08, 2005 10:22 pm

Yes, 12whitediamonds is back on ebay with his tacky overpriced paint job/LED Octane...

Compared to the machine he got for $120 from 1stsourceusa, that makes for expensive paint & LEDs!

But the main question I want to ask: can I run Linux on it?

Yeah, I think we all agree that paint jobs on our machines should be reserved only for extreme cases, but I can't help (ok, it's overpriced, but then I already have an Octane) to think it looks nice in white... except for the stupid fan LED.

Sure, if you super-glue the distribution CD's to the case. The Octane runs and linux is on it :)

i think those fans look pretty nice, considering you wont see them - only the glow on the wall.

the paint job is another matter altogether.

when i look at that picture i just want to open the front and take out a cold beer! :twisted:

Yikes, that guy should be shot for molesting an Octane like that.

Kinda of off topic, but has anyone seen this garbage?

Looks like at least quarter-inch plate. Glass is stronger than steel in compression - as long as you don't hit it with a hammer :-)

He explains using a needle nose pliers to remove and dissect plus how he smashed the original Octane mainboard in order to mount a.........a......a....... I can't even say celeron.......pukeing again

And by day he is a brain surgeon......or should I say sturgeon
