My Home Systems
The systems I currently run at home:
P4(631)/3GHz [EM64T, G965]: WinXP Pro) —
Liked the mobo and cpu for my new RAID server so much,
I upgraded my increasingly flaky primary box.
A friend had a capture card lying around, too,
so I can finally digitize my old VHS tapes
(prom, college graduation, home movies, etc. —
deal was I digitize some of his, such as the Jeep ads he is in).
Love having two monitors
(Dell 2000FP + SGI 1600SW) —
looks like my eVGA card could handle up to 32,
if I go nuts at some point...
RAID server, P4(631)/3GHz [EM64T, G965]:
finally have to build a replacement for my trusty old internal server,
as it has maxed out on disks and has started to have erratic hardware
issues (it is 7 years old).
Unfortunately, the clock chip seems to have gone wonky.
Loses about 7.2 seconds per hour.

RAID server, Celeron/766:
my trusty old file and sandbox server, it is the master copy for all the
websites I manage.
RAID-1 plus removable snapshot drives gives me better backup and recovery
than most small businesses (and maybe even some large ones!)
- G4 PowerBook
G4 PowerBook: MacOS X) —
my wife's laptop, bought with a nice discount when the local Apple
Store was clearing out its PowerPC floor models for the Intel Macs
still running great, despite its encounters through the years with beer,
yogurt, walls, driveways, etc.
Just wish I could find a way for it to support more RAM.
Inspiron 8000 (with a Latitude C800 motherboard), Win2k) —
gorgeous screen, when it works, but the rest of the machine is a piece
as in Millenium Falcon, because it is a hodgepodge of pieces from as
far back as 1984, but it works)
K6/200: OS du jour [Linux, FreeBSD, etc.])
well, once I find replacement OS install tapes... anyone have a copy of
IRIX 4.0.5F lying around?)
