#4 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » new pc buisness » 2014-10-29 00:51:55

they are actually all the same model except for the net support (used to control pcs by teacher) which is faster
they run Xubuntu well and Ubuntu would work decently to

#5 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » new pc buisness » 2014-10-28 11:33:13

i could send a boot disk with them (ubuntu or mint due to the fact the people im selling to are new to it)

my shop teacher is bringing in pcs the school cant use (there pretty good windows 7 sata x4 p4ht and some sata disks (hdd dvd)0)
ive been activating windows and adding some ram in the shop down time and selling them for 10 bucks to teachers and students ive made over 50 bucks doing barley anything

hell the teacher even says he will give me marks for building them (i modify the chaise so the hdd fits in the fdd cleanly (sawing the plastic cover so the hdd wont push on it)

of course i got one free and i took the best one which was a quad core with 4 gb of ram and i put two 80gb 7200 rpm drives

so i can potentialy sell 200 of them (2000 $ for not being bored at lunch) 

of course im putting cb on mine but windows for the ones i sell.

ive lernt from some book or show that if you strip a screw you can drill it with a 9 /64 size bit  ( one size up from the 1/8 bit) about 1/8 deep than hit a #3 (red handled) robinson(square) SCREWDRIVER (a drill type bit would probably strip again) in with a hammer to remove the screw

when working for my dad the screws were rusted and some striped and the trick worked well and removed the screws

if you have tricks like this this would be good

i made to a sub 100 dollar server setup that fits into a rubber made organizer drawer thing that has good ventilation via hundreds of holes and runs without making a lot of sound
it has 3 hdds
2 are westren digital 80 gb sata drives and one is the same brand but 120 gb ide
it has a graphics card that is ancient that is for setting it up and once ive got scripts made to make it work it could be prety cool
it has the psu attached to the back and it is bolted on (2 intch clearence where the holes are to the psu board so i dont get shoked)
it has a p4 that has hyperthreding and overclocking (asus p800 mabey)

im thinking of takeing the drive out and puting it in my pentium d desktop so ive got some power but the desktop is a snakes nest of wires and i always get cut working on pcs
i think time and  zipties are in order

#19 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » GEOS commodore gui » 2014-02-18 14:05:08

well ive got both and im trying to put files on a dd flopie to test the drive however i cant find the drive in antix (debian sid repos)
do i need a driver or some program to make the drive show up
(if i dont it may be broken)
i may choose to dualboot windows 98 and linux on it if i cant get it to work because windows should have a bit more support because it is as old as the drive itself
however i did get youtube on antix (well it was 144p and still very choppy)
also dose debian have tape drive support because i found a 1010 port cassette drive with 20 mb sized tapes and figured they would be prety secure because who would have one of those drives

#20 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » GEOS commodore gui » 2014-02-18 01:39:15

mabey but i havent found all the games i had yet
ive got the boxes for sim city and various other games but no friggen disks
so it looks as if im going to have to go in to my aunts attic (its inside the walls in her roof so you need to doo a lot to get at the stuff)
also half the disks dont work
however ive got plenty of 5 1/4 inch blank floppies for a trs 80 / ibm thing
