Hello ver.20

  1. I'll try this again. The cat decided to help me type.
    My first attempt at posting this has vanished, just like that damm cat did.
    Been lurking here for quite a while, delurk is now enabled. I'm not a newbie, nor am I an uber-geek. I've always enjoyed passing on the bits and pieces of knowledge I find under the couch cushions of my mind. And I know quite a few of them originated here. I'm pretty much self taught on the hardware side of things. Trying to take a few programing courses when I can squeeze in the time.
    I've been building and giving away FrankenSystems for a while. You can learn a lot cobbling together old hardware. 49 complete systems in the last two years. And they are all still running with the exception of one Dell P2 box.

    Here's the specs on my widows test box. I've made magic smoke come out of it a couple of times. :) I've owned it for about 3 years. About the only parts left from the origanal version are the floppy and the system speaker.

    AMD Athlon XP2500+
    Cpu: 1.83GHz, oc'ed to 2Ghz on occasion
    1GB DDR-SDRAM at 333Mhz
    L2 on board cache: 512kb , Motherboard:ECS L7S7A2
    HDD 1: Fujitsu MPD3108AT (10 GB) on primary IDE
    HDD 2: Maxtor 91020D6 (9.5 GB) on primary IDE
    HDD 3: Maxtor 54098H8 (40 GB} on secondary IDE
    HDD 4: Maxtor 6E040L0 (38 GB) striped RAID
    HDD 5: Maxtor 6E040L0 (38 GB) striped RAID
    HDD 6: Quantum Fireball LM20.5(19 GB) striped RAID
    HDD 7: Quantum Fireball LM20.5(19 GB) striped RAID
    RAID is running on an elderly Promise FastTrak100 PCI card
    Optical Drive: Samsung / 16x4x16x DVD+RW
    Video card 1: 8XAGP Nvidia GeForce4 MX 440 with
    Video card 2: PCI XFX GeForce FX 5200
    Sound card: Creative SB Audigy Live (scavenged Dell oem)

    I'll be posting this and the specs on my *nix desktops and server in my profile later.

    This post is kinda long, but you did ask for it. :)

    Hi rowdy, welcome to TechSpot.

    I've got to add, after looking at your specs, you certainly have a large assortment of hard drives on that computer.
