Well you got me beat! Very Happy

All I got was one of these.... found it on eBay while looking for micro servers. Spent all of yesterday going through several boxes of old ram
figuring out what was in them finally.





So how brutally fast is your new toy?

One time at my old work they asked me to do some minor graphic design stuff (not part of my duties) for one of our clients so i said i wouldn't be able to do anything like that since we don't have adobe illustrator and a good colour laser and next thing i knew they went ahead and go them.

I think they see it as a way to get a project done quicker internally rather then to get someone temporary outside to do it.

niteshooter: *fast* Razz

4x320gb 15k RPM SAS drives in two striped RAIDs, Mirrored

Cubist: The keyboard blows. I hate it. Not much key travel and is only 95% with no keypad. I don't know why *anyone* would want it. The Mighty Mouse is pretty sweet, though.

We have some of these new thin Mac keyboards at work. I'm finding that my wrists are getting sore from using them compared to my old KB can we day RSI....

Thanks helf, it's pretty handy too. I finally figured out what a bunch of old 30 pin simms where mainly keyrings now... but did find a few 16mb simms that I should try in the Cube.
