Title: On April 14th 2010, a NeXTie will introduce THE NRW
Post by: da9000 on April 02, 2010, 07:12:43 am
And you'll see why 2010 won't be like 2010 (http://tinyurl.com/53jgan).

April 14th, 2010. The time is upon us.

Behold a complete NRW. Still ticking away in some secret bunker...

Yes, I realize there are nay-sayers always and the screen isn't on, but was working. You can also see the electronics from the backside. Enjoy dear brethren of NeXT! :-)

Did you refurbish the Cube in BBums backyard (http://www.flickr.com/photos/bbum/2643285301/)?  :mrgreen:

Oh, that is hard to see.

But then again, back in the 97-99 timeframe where I worked we were lousy with cubes (hundreds of them).  We gutted them to use for trash cans and even stacked them up to make bookcases and other furniture...

I guess this is an inside joke?  Or an April fool a day late?  I'm lost.  hehehe

Well, ladies and gentlemen. Today is the 14th day of April, and guess what...we are all still waiting for something to happen...

I do hope it wasn't something like the Y2K bug...

Unfortunately, he has a history of not following through.

Quote from: "da9000 from 2007"I will definitely scan it, but when I get a little bit of time. For now it's safely and carefully stored someplace :)


Quote from: "mrintel from 2010"Just out of curiosity, has the NRW Manufacturing Overview been scanned yet? And if so, has it been posted somewhere?

@cuby:

No, we DO make contact (evidence above :-)), but it's more like 2001 which was awesome and not crappy like 2010, IMHO. Ergo: this 2010 will rock!


@Nitro:

My dear friend, that cube has definitely outlived its days and ain't nothing any bum can do about it! :-)


@pergamon:

Thou shalt repent one day! :-p


@Mike_H:

Sir, I'm unaware of any such information or knowledge. Nor would I be disposed to discuss such information, if it did in fact exist, sir. :-)


@Slab:

Tsk, tsk, tsk. So quick to judge... And so much history to base it upon... And during tax season...

An Apple asset tag.
Boys, this looks like history right here. I damand shots under the hood!  :wink:
Also, that monitor looks like the largest, most clunky thing I have ever seen.
Title: Monitor
Post by: Scutboy on April 16, 2010, 02:20:46 pm
That's just the same Sony monitor that NeXT, Sun, SGI, HP and everyone else used around that time.

It just came in different colors  :D

If we could get some more pics of this, including it powered up, the inside, the apple tag, and other things like that, that would be great!
Title: bump!

RISC(y) box with pedigree,
Hoards of NeXTies wait for thee.
I guess we'll all just wait.  And see?

May and June have withered hence.
with no expanded evidence.
This is all just my two cents,
with no intended arrogance..
