I just met Megan McArthur (STS-125) who repaired and upgraded the Hubble, along with the pilot Greg Johnson. I love how I look like my brain just melted.
that's awesome. they look like pretty cool people too.
yeah they absolutely were. I got flustered and asked what the moon looked like and CPT Johnson explained that you're not actually much closer, but with the atmosphere out of the way you can see a little more detail. Oh and Megan McArthur admitted to puking in zero-g, lol!
>>648 heh, imagine puking in your helmet

I'm a Pengiun with Red, blue, yellow and green feathers wearing an apple as a helmet
what this is i do not know .... stop .....i can use any hardware (paperweights, landfill, gifts, shrapnel, much more uses im sure)why i might even investigate its electronic properties if the devil twists my arm hard enuf
what is binary? whom made microchips? why do we really care? if i was less inclined to think i might stop breathing, windows is 4 the lazy easily pleased populus.I am busy climbing in thru windows, intent on stealing at least 1 copy of everything available in your house
What do you think about EULAs?
they make a nice pattern; if you disagree it always stops or exits or does some shit that wasnt what you spent time and effort trying to achieve (ie you say no to licence u fail).after learning this simple fact you will always always skip reading that shit and click yes (absolutley ignore and disrespect any condition of use attached).Not only that but often you will find that even should you have been visited by the devil the night b4 and are looking 4 some really boring shit to make u fall asleep, reading an eula will make u wish u had that devil back, u see if the precondition of me using this software is that i pay your retail XXX dollar price without knowing you have more demands still to come and that i have no option but to agree to your demands (not that u will tell me them plainly) then ill just click yes with my fingers crossed and not really give a shit about ur stupid licence which u also make me pay 4.
tldr: what is an eula? and werent they made obsolete by their own misuse? therefore fully worthless shit imo.
I need a picture of the circuit board of a ps1 controller port. If anyone can get me one or take a picture themselves. also, i need to be able to see everything on the back clearly
I'd do it if I still had one left over.
>>56Overclocked much did we?

This was taken at my last workplace. I never really took much interest in computers until very recently so I always just used my father's old machine. Recently I've been getting more into whats inside this thing so I've been dabbling about and I've also been thinking into investing in Windows Seven when it comes out.

>>31Wow, I didn't expect I'd receive so much enthusiasm. The monitor is monochrome and it is, yes, an 8088 without a hard drive - it just runs on a cassette. It still boots. It uses 640kb and actually MS-DOS 5.0 which runs fine.
>>33You should get yourself a CGA monitor (lurk some time on ebay as they pop up periodically, or look on google). There's some CGA cards on ebay too (there's a nice ATI DB9 for sale now). Then you can play Oregon Trail in colors on this thing.For hard drives you can look for an ST-225 (20 MB - on ebay there's one real cheap right now and the seller says it's working). Alternately you can go for an ST-412 (10 MB - what I used to have) or an ST-251 (a whopping 40MB, but I don't know if it'll work with an 8088). Or you can go with the first one ST-506 (5MB - not much, but you have enough room for DOS).A hard drive will require an ISA controller card. I'm not too knowledgeable on where to find those, or even what make or model to get, but you can ask here http://www.vintage-computer.com/vcforum/index.php
Are you sure it's running on cassettes? I thought the things up front were two full height 5 1/4" floppy drives (never had those - always had 1/2 height drives - 360KB ones).
