Re: Parallel Printer Renaissance?

No kidding about the security. If something is configured via Telnet, security is out. That said, it's not going to be port forwarded (Duh!), and won't be used all that much (or so I think) so I'm...

Re: Parallel Printer Renaissance?

I'm lumping "large format" printers into the same category. I've seen those in parallel get tossed too. At work we use those for both part/CAD prints, large wall charts/schedules, and posters. An old...

Re: Ratdude's Main Rig V5.6

Well, the seller accepted my lowball offer... Got six 146GB 15K drives on order (some are fujitsu, some are seagate). I have a 7th as a spare... so I need at least 1 more to fill the array. Hmm......
