    Re: The Seti Bar

    I helped it along a bit by disabling all the onboard devices in the bios and then enabled them one at a time with a reboot in between. But still, it worked and I was impressed. A colleague informed me that in his considerable experience, it works about 30-40% of the time, the rest of the time it's BSOD.

Luckily for me it was a linux machine, so despite it being an nForce2 replacing a SiS board, a quick reboot later and linux had detected all the new hardware and was happy. So there I was saying how brilliant linux was and that there was NO WAY that Windows could ever do that, when today, to my total amazement, I saw Windows XP do exactly the same thing

    A client's motherboard was fried and needed replacing, but being 2 years old was discontinued so an alternative was supplied. The last thing I fancied was having to do a complete reinstall after backing up all the data and user settings from the HD on a Friday afternoon. But then it happened - yes, a straight swap of a dead motherboard with onboard everything for a replacement of differing chipset and Windows XP sorted it all out without so much as a murmer. So I take back my harsh words and am suitably impressed. I think it's the first time that anything from Microsoft has really impressed me since first seeing OLE and DDE actually work back in 1995

    A while ago, I swapped the SCSI drive and controller from my P4 3.0Ghz machine running WinXP and put it in my AMD 2200+MP duallie system and WinXP detected everything and booted without any problems. I was pretty impressed by that.

    I sitting inside the control room at work, I'll be the "designated worker" today. We are only going outside to push snowdrifts away from critical equipment....still gotta 'pass gas' . Got the wind chill meter working again, man that's depressing to look at but useful to help insure we don't stay outside too long. Some of you'se guys are pros at living in a wintry area, we are official wimps when it comes to that. An extended cold and snowy period only comes along every so often. Me? I've been here in Bellingham for 35 years so I'm used to it. I just missed a big storm in 1969 here where it got so cold many peoples shallow wells froze. There were snowdrifts to the tops of power lines. People talked about that for years!

    The Weather Network always predicts slightly colder temps than the official Environment Canada predictions. Right now there are supposed to be a couple days of -34C mid-next week. That's chilly..even for here. Going to have to plug the car in....and huddle up to stay warm

    Re: The Seti Bar

    Killed a Duallie? Yeah I guess that can happen, Me I'm waiting for a New Bios chip(again) cause of a Bad Bios flash, Nothing like an untested internal release that has gotten out, But at least It will arrive Monday by UPS, So then I get to open the case and remove 2 cards and the old chip and then reassemble It and turn It on and all will be well as then I just need to get a pair of larger heatsinks for It($114.59 2-Scythe SCKKR-1000 KAMAKIRI Universal CPU heatsinks with shipping to Me), But then I already bought a pair of Koolance Xeon Prestronia to P4 RMs and best of all each one has 6 Heatpipes and an 80mm Fan and It's only 72mm wide by about 80mm deep and maybe 110mm tall and that's less than the 80mm wide area that a heatsink could occupy in zoom3.
    Of course I still have to wait until Feb 1st for a Super-Flower 550w psu for zoom2 just to complete an upgrade. And to upgrade zoom1 I will 1st need another Super-Flower 550w psu, Then I can get the parts(xp-120, DFI LPUT & 3400 cpu[or a 3700?]).
