Does it have the same resolution.. Maybe you should just shoot yourself in the bathroom in the mirror at an angle so you don't get Flashback in your shot.

It never hurts to be an optimist.

Which may be a good reason in believing the 600 years figure.

I loved reading your response by the way. It made mine seem grade school.
HA!! Grade School. Not even you actually made a very informed reply. The difference is, I've been using and working on computers since 1984, I've been studying them ever since. Also, you can say I've been a little exposed to people in the manufacturing and testing end. Ummm, Mindy's dad was an electronics engineer with Motorola. Since then I've also been around people who test the consumer end and others that work or have worked in the manufacturing end.

This is the first computer I ever had to deal with. Portable my behind, it was inside an air condition Semi-trailer and we had to use cards with a #2 pencil and fill in about 50 bubbles on each card. Each card ordered one part for the motor pool. If you filled in the wrong bubble the thing would shut down for about an hour! http://www-03.ibm.com/ibm/history/hi...year_1975.html
Also, notice the info on fractals?

This is the first computer that I ever saw anyone buy to use in his room. It's programs ran on cassette tape: Attachment 159993

Go to this page and scroll down to the Osborne 1, this is the first computer that we ever used in the field to order parts, it took about an hour to send an order to a satellite then back to the U.S. : http://www.computerhistory.org/timeline/?category=cmptr
Here's a better pic, borrowed from Maximum PC : Attachment 159999

This one was the first computer in my house, in fact, it's still in my house, in the back room on the top of a storage cabinet, 20Mb hard drive, notice, that's Mb not Gb, 8Mhz processor, it takes 20 minutes to boot. Guys who bought the 80386 upgrade card were thrilled because the 386 version was called the X, add that to the SE and you have the Mac SEX: http://www.everymac.com/systems/appl...c_se_fdhd.html

The first computer I upgraded instead of fixed was Mindy's 386DX/40. She had a bookkeeping business when we met. It ran at 16mhz then if you hit the "Turbo" button it ran at 40Mhz. The base system cost her close to $1500-. First thing I added was a Cyrix Math co-processor, later we upgraded from a basic video card, I think it had 16 colors to a VGA card with 256 colors then the really big purchase was a Sound Blaster kit that was the whole length of the case and had a CD drive controller on it that you could actually install DOS games with. We later upgraded from IBM DOS 5.0 to MS DOS 6.1 and installed Windows 3.1!!! I still have 1mb simms, 30 pin simms, 72 pin simms, a WD Caviar 2340 that has a whopping 341.2Mb of storage on it. A Seagate ST3243A drive with an amazing 214Mb on it.

We have many other things, this place is like a Museum of old computer parts. After the 386DX40, the next computer we built was a Pentium, that's it, just a Pentium and since we were late adopters we missed out on the math co-processor bug. The local store wanted $4600- for a 486DX100 but I bought the parts for the Pentium for about $1200-, case and video card included. When we move, I'll take pictures of all this stuff for you guys. Also, thanks very much for the compliment, in case you didn't know I've always been a bit of a writer. One more thing Enigma and I have in common.

Almost left out one of the oldest pieces of junk I ever worked on. I forget about it because it's at my feet, literally, I use it to block away the power cords so the dogs don't unplug things under the desk. It's a 286SX, a little trick they used to make a bigger profit from people, it was capable of running 32bit software on a 16bit processor. Capable, but not really reasonable. It came in a form factor that's known as the "Pizza Box", put it on your desk then put your monitor on it. I had to tell the lady that it couldn't be fixed. Google "Dallas Clock battery" and you'll see why.

Oh yeah, you're absolutely right, people are always jumping lanes by overclocking, processors, motherboards, video cards, some people even boost the juice to thier HDD's to see if they can get more power out of them. Did I just hear Tim Allen grunting??

Optimist? I can't think of being any other way. Hmmm maybe a drunken doomsayer?

Allright, since you were stopped it's ok but at any price it's wrong to put it up there when the car is moving. If you're gonna do that might as well ship it to me.

Ok, gang. I need some help. Those that have been around a while know that I re-built the W/C loop in my Haf, oh a month and a Haf ago! Oh, I'm so punny sometimes. So, there's this one thing that got neglected. It had something to do with this:

I know, it's horrible, but when you live 1/2 block from the river in a desert in a crowded trailer, things get forgotten sometimes. That's not the problem though, when I took that out it was to replace those noisy Zalman fans with the GT 1850's I bought. Then I found out there was this little problem. The GT's have this funny bracket in the corners: This is a perfect example of why shrouds are used, see the pattern where the air actually gets through and how it's blocked by the motor and struts.

Can you see it? There's an opening on each end then then there's like this block in the center that only those skinny screwdrivers can fit into. Worse, on one side they point in one direction and the other way 'round on the other side. So you have one gap open to the corner, like in that picture, then the next gap faces the first gap, not out like the one above.

So, my rad is mounted: Case grill>fans>rad. The first part isn't really much of a problem since the outside screws go through the grill and into the fan holes. Then I have a problem because the next screw is supposed to fit in that corner, point down and mount into the rad. To assemble it, you have to mount the fans to the rad then from outside the case use fan screws to mount the fan/rad combo to the case grill. I could mount the fans under the rad in a pull setup but I still have this problem.

This is where I'm stuck:

Case fan screws head sits in there but that *#@% block stops the head from going through to the fan or rad, depending on the mount. The other way, I'd have to use the rad screw to go in that same slot then screw it into the rad. Like so:

Either way, I'm blocked. My thoughts, dremel it. Surely you jest & don't call me surley! Even if I could make an accurate cut there, I couldn't make one on the holes that face inward. Next, drill it out. Nope, that won't work because then the screw/ bolt head would have nothing to hold on to at the outer edge of the fan.

I checked around, the usual answer to this is to get bolts that go all the way through case/ fan/ rad then put a nut and washer at the end. I can't do that because if you go back to the dirty rad, the holes don't go through, they are "attaching" screws.

Any ideas?? Please??

Use screws which can be done from the top of the fan housing, basically longer screws. or, you could look at filing down the extra plastic, which is what I had to do.
