  1. Commodore 64. Parents bought it new. Granted I was only 2, but used it a lot through life. The first one bought for ME was the Tandy CC 3.
  2. Side Stand Up Unpersons Twisted Wrist This one is on a hiatus due to Tim having other obligations. Sounds like he'll be back this summer though. At least that was the last I heard.
  3. Rush, Dragonforce, Dream Theater. All good bands.
  4. Representin' tha 715! Yey Yay!
  5. I had to go troubleshoot a problem with a guy who had gotten a new wireless keyboard for his laptop. He couldn't figure out why he couldn't get it to work. I got there and he was trying to find the keyboard in his wireless networks list. Properly installed it, and all was well.
  6. I'm looking for a low-cost thin client management. We are investigating the use of thin clients on our network vs. desktop PC's. So far, I've found a couple options. The 2X software seems to be the one with the best features. This needs to allow remote management of thin clients across the network. Management, flash-capable, and not manufacturer specific. We have a mix of both Neoware and HP thin clients in our current inventory, as well as a few from Wyse. Anyone using Thin clients on a production environment, and have experience?
  7. At work At home, I have a 3mb/512kb plan through AT&T/SBC Yahoo. It was the fastest in my area aside from Charter, and Charter can't get a solid signal to my house.
  8. I'm looking at virtualizing my home network and getting down to 2 physical servers from a total of 5 right now. I tore my whole network down, with the exception of the basic DSL router, 1 pc, and my laptop, while I configure all of this. What I'd like to know is if I can move my smoothwall from a physical box, which is currently an AMD 500mhz processor and 128mb RAM, with 2 100m nics, to one of my servers. The 2 I'm going to run full-time are multi-processor, 3gb RAM each, and are Gigabit compliant. Not that the Gig is a big deal since the Smoothwall is basically the internet pipe only, but it would be nice to eliminate one more physical machine. Has anyone tried this?

    Windows 7 rc

    I have it installed on my spare work laptop, running beautifully, and I also have it on a VMware just to test it out there, and it also works.
  10. SC: Conviction for sure, HL Ep 3, and Prototype.
  11. I've had great luck with the Acer Aspire series. Light, built like tanks, and they use an Atheros wireless chipset, so Linux hasnt been an issue. They also tend to hover below the $700 price point.
  12. We're going to have to test the release version and see, but i know we had too many headaches with Vista. Mostly the cost of upgrading a lot of older systems that are still in use. We'll have to do something since eventually they are going to fully stop supporting XP.
  13. Thanks guys! I wound up buying the eeePC 1000he. I'm liking it a lot so far. I do have some wireless issues too work through. For some reason it doesn't like WPA, so I'm running my home network on WEP with MAC filtering until I figure it out.
  14. I'm going shopping for a Netbook and need some advice. I've basically limited it down to the MSI Wind, Acer Aspire One, or the eeePC. All 3 of these fall in under the $350 price point, have 10" screens, and 120gb+ hard drives with Windows XP. I believe they all have the Atom processor as well. I've also found some with the Celeron over the Atom for a little less. Is there any major advantage? Basic uses for this will be Windows administration(active directory, and remote Citrix apps). I will also be using it for web and watching videos while traveling(standard def and web primarily). I need to have Windows for work. I have some apps that don't run under Linux without much headache. I also want a clear screen, and I have heard this is where the Asus eeePC falls short. This is going to turn into my semi-primary machine. I still have machines at home for larger tasks and gaming, and I do have 3 laptops for work, but this will fit in the tank bag on my motorcycle so it will get the most use. Its going to replace my current Acer laptop. So, anyone have experience with all 3 and have any recommendations?
