    Post your system.......

    Ok, boredom and curiosity got the better of me..... Whats in your box?

    Supermicro X5DAL-TG2 board (all Sanyo caps stock)
    2x 3.0GHz Xeon CPU's (1mb L2)
    2gb Corsair ECC RAM
    ATi 9800 AIW (yeah, prolly time for an upgrade, but I use the TV tuner constantly)
    Audigy2 sound
    Adaptec 2100S SCSI RAID Controller
    2x Fujitsu MAN-series 18gb, 10k, 8mb cache U320 HDD's (set in 36gb stripe, and hellishly faster than a SATA RAID. The OS and progs installed on...
    2x Fujitsu MAN-series 73gb, 10k, 8mb cache U320 HDD's. (mirrored for other stuff.)
    NEC 12x DVDRW
    Plextor 48x CDRW
    Pioneer Slot-load DVDROM
    LS120 (Yeah, I know... older than Jesus himself, but hey...)
    Zip-250 (doesnt even work, just too lasy to pull it out of the case)
    Case: Lian Li solid steel server tower... A few years old, but it would stop a .22 caliber round, I guarantee it, weighs 80lbs EMPTY.

    Thats about it... I might throw a pic or two up...

    Re: Post your system.......

    OK, we're boring. Our family's desktop is a 3YO Sony Vaio, stock. We used to buy HP, but when we heard their systems would be designed at Compaq, we switched. It has 512MB RAM, 60GB HD, CDROM drive, DVDROM drive, Win XP Home. We have a Zip 250, an HP multifunction printer, and an HP photo-printer. My kids (17YOD, 20YOS, and 23YOD) and I have Inspiron 1100 (1), 2200 (1), and 1000 (2) laptops among us.

    Power Supplies should be boring: No loud noises, no bright flashes, and no bad smells.
    To kill personal responsibility, initiative or success, punish it by taxing it. To encourage irresponsibility, improvidence, dependence and failure, reward it by subsidizing it.

        Re: Post your system.......

        Well, not much point to this, but might as well post anyway...

        On the right:
        msi 694d pro 1.0 with 22 new nichicons
        2 p3-866 cpus with shiny orb fansinks
        2gb pc133 sdram
        80gb, 160gb, and 200gb hard drives
        52x cd-rw drive
        agp geforce 2 video card
        two generic lan cards
        adaptec scsi card
        pci ATI all-in-wonder card, boat anchor (mach64) variety.
        unknown case. (like most everything else above, garage sale purchase)
        And a FUCKING PAIN IN THE ASS 16x dvd+-r/rw drive I've never gotten to work properly. (burns flawlessly, but becomes brain-damaged trying to read anything)

        On the left:
        unknown motherboard.
        p2-350 cpu
        20gb, 40gb, and 60gb hard drives
        16x cd-rw
        agp ati mach64 all-in-wonder.
        other stuff. (hey, it's been around 6 years since I last had the case off this one!)

        Both systems have 17" monitors, placed next to each other, using x2x to magically warp the mouse and keyboard between systems. (looks like dual-head, but on two separate machines)

        USB devices, all on the dual p3-866:
        5 USB hubs (4 4 port and 1 7 port, plus the 4 ports on the motherboard)
        3 USB wacom intuos graphics tablets
        6 USB inkjet printers
        2 USB laser printers
        1 USB sound card.
        1 USB digital microscope.
        1 USB mouse.
        1 USB wireless keyboard.
        1 USB 6-in-1 flash card reader
        2 USB plugs for digital cameras
        1 USB cd-rw driver
        1 USB ethernet adapter
        1 USB scanner

        Plugged into all computers: KVM, a cheap logitech mouse, and a crappy logitech keyboard with useless "internet buttons" taking up room that I've never used and never plan to.

        Behind me, a box I just put together for a relative:
        Athlon 1ghz
        Asus A7V motherboard (yes, I'm finally parting with it... it's served me well)
        16x cd-rw
        384mb pc133 ram
        2x20gb drives
        radeon 7200
        kne111tx nic (bad; need to replace)
        some sound blaster sound card that's crackly and poppy, and looks like an IRQ problem, but fucking windows reassigns all the cards so they share IRQs, and won't let me disable ACPI. Absolutely, positively, fucking worthless operating system!

        To the left of me, one of my spare boxes:
        another msi 694d pro 1.0 motherboard, another 22 new nichicons.
        2x p3-800 cpus with generic fansinks.
        1gb pc-133 sdram
        20gb disk
        old radeon card

        On top of that box (there's a lot of stackage in my room!):
        p4-1.5ghz box, 768mb pc400 rdram, awaiting a motherboard transplant, with the motherboard presently sitting on top of it.

        To the left of that box:
        A rather partial duron-700 box

        On top of that box:
        Another athlon 1ghz system
        Motherboard full of g-luxons. No caps look bad, but is unstable as hell, and sometimes doesn't turn on. To be recapped.

        Under the table, my laptop:
        dell latitude cpid
        64mb edo ram
        6gb disk

        Under my laptop:
        Sparcstation 5, 110mhz.

        On top of the box on my left:
        My uber-cute panasonic cf-m31 mini-laptop. Will be fixed as soon as I scrape together the money to buy Aaron's graciously offered parts. 80mb edo ram.

        Also on the table in front of me:
        friggin huge SCSI scanner
        Pioneer sx-828 amplifier
        TOA studio monitors, plugged into above amplifier
        Set of cheap computer speakers
        Lots of random stuff, including a few gb of pc100 ram, random cards, digital camera, etc.

        Also on the table on the left:
        A couple boxes of stuff.
        Sony digital camcorder.
        About 50 assorted cards.
        Oscilloscope (tektronix TDS-210 digital 'scope with a set of nice 10x probes)
        Adjustable power supply
        Random crap.

        Shoved onto the small shelving unit in the corner between the tables:
        UPS and two external batteries. (total weight about 160lbs, gives 6-8 hours runtime with everything single thing in the room except the laser printers and the ceiling light plugged into it)
        2 ethernet switches
        part of my extra-bright flashlight collection. (the whole collection consisting of four 1,000,000 candlepower lanterns, a 1,500,000 candlepower spotlight, and a extra-huge 10,000,000 candlepower lantern with heavy-duty shoulder strap)
        chargers for loose cells, flashlights, camera, phone, three sets of cordless tools (mmmm, 18v...), etc.
        More random stuff.

        Rest of the room:
        about 50-75 storage boxes, containing:
        two hundred or so pounds of computer parts
        a hundred or so pounds of pneumatic parts
        a hundred or so pounds of electronic parts
        50 or so pounds of automotive parts
        100 or so pounds of audio equipment
        50 or so pounds of kinky sex toys

        My designjet 220 inkjet plotter. (prints on 25x38" paper, a stack of which sits on top of it)
        about 10 assorted computers and cases in various states of assembly
        about 200 lbs of books
        a couple boxes of lasers, ccd cameras, and other fun stuff.
        a bed over in the corner somewhere! often at night I can find it by making a path to it.
        a few more inkjet printers
        Whole lots of completely random stuff.

        Living room:
        about 6 computers in pieces
        color laser printer
        another ethernet switch
        a 16-way combiner/duplexor assembly for an 800mhz cell tower, with duplexor unit and splitters for the receivers. (SHINY! looks great in the living room! weighs >100 lbs and takes up LOTS of space! FOR SALE!!! Would look great in YOUR living room too!)

        In the garage:
        About the same distribution of stuff as my bedroom...
        Lots of computer stuff.
        About 10 systems in various states of assembly.
        Lots of electronics bits.
        Automotive parts.
        A rather large (~200lbs) pile of aluminum in all shapes and sizes.
        My 40lb, 200 amps at 14.4v using, 4-motored R/C car with 13.5" wheels with 1" metal spikes.
        Soldering station (vacuum desolderer, etc).

        More pneumatics.
        More laser printers.
        More inkjet printers.
        More books.
        Power tools, drills, saws, grinders, air compressors, nail/staple guns, socket sets (including 3/4" drive, of course), woodworking tools, metalworking tools, etc, etc, etc.
        About 10 random engines ranging from a 16cc homelite to a 12hp Briggs.
        About 50 pounds of sprockets. (#35, #40, #25, dual #40)
        About 100 pounds of chain to fit above sprockets.
        Honda backup generator.
        Two large plastic bins of less-often-used sex toys.
        Parts for the CNC mill I'm building one of these decades.
        More r/c car stuff.
        One and a half rooms of other assorted stuff I'm too lazy to list.

        In the driveway:
        A set of 31x11.5R15 mud boggers on shiny alloy rims.
        My car, as it doesn't fit in the garage with all that stuff!

        Oh, and more stuff.

        (who has a lot of stuff...)

                I plan to put together a renderfarm in the garage one of these years, when I do more work on some raytracing stuff... so accumulating stuff.



                  Re: Post your system.......

                  I have 3 systems here, and a colocated server. The one I listed earlier is the 'daily driver'. The other 2 servers are:

                  2x 2GHz xeons per board
                  Intel SHG2 mainboards
                  1gb infineon ECC RAM per board
                  Intel SCRZCR zero-channel U320 SCSI RAID
                  Adaptec forgot the model SATA RAID controller
                  2x MAN3367MP 36gb 10k 8mb mirrored for OS and criticals
                  2x WD 250gb 7200 16mb SATA2 mirrored for other shit and my MP3 collection
                  Adaptec 62044 4-channel 100 base NICs (plus the 2 onboard NIC's)

                  that above list 2x = the servers.

                      ok now post a pic of your setup. I go second......

                      perhaps i should consider cable management. perhaps usual that a tech's office server cabinet is looking good but no energy left for the home system.....anyway please note that there are wood chocks shoved underneath the desk shelf to guarantee perfect burning. there is also the new main computer/networking piece of furniture which i made in about an hour using wood salvaged from the office which houses the zyxel switch and router and yes acts as a bar missing is the sofa chair which i sit on and sometimes fall asleep while browsing the net in the early hours.....

                          welcome to command center. i will make it beautiful one day but these days too busy and tired. works 24/7 though.....unlike me. guess i should fix my lifestyle also...........what would mikey say?

                          dsl for the house runs through that switch/router. zyxel just works fine. and yes i did the cables to the other areas of the house professionally.

                          and today they announce 20% cut in prices on 384 and 40-50% on 512 1024. dang i am so tempted to upgrade from 384 even though it is perfectly fine for my needs.
