...its lucky that Thom integrated Mame plugin as a few of us have now found a real use for it at last... we can run Vax 11/750 emulators in the Orbiter for debugging purposes too

nothing can bring down a LinuxMCE VAX cluster... not even ringing the door bell, watching TV, using the toilet and answering calls at the same time..

You have a TV and A Phone in your Bathroom ---- SWEET  ;D

That's nothing! I have a webcam in mine. ::)

"Bowlcam" check your rectal health. Easier than sticking your head up your arse.

There are so many ways the VAX can be discretely installed around the house... this ones is cunningly disguised as washing machine http://computer-refuge.org/compcollect/dec/vax/11750/my11750-big.jpg

Dude, I think my hot water heater is smaller than this behemoth. Hopefully this is just gag.

I love the comment from the guy who says "Should I reinstall 7.10?" - ROFL
Like anyone with any sense would still have thier 7.10 production system working, right ?

You wouldn't have liked the first draft then.

Today was a happy day for me, I finished my homebrew case for mytyan server board and three ion boards.  Rackmount width and 25cm high by 22cm deep. Contains four power supplies and two disk SATA removable hard drive backplanes (for media) with a 64GB solid state drive for the systems software. Under a short soak test it seems to run at stable temperatures, except for one power supply that seems unstable.  I'll swap that out and soak test again.  After that I'm ready to begin my LinuxMCe journey.

Didn't want to post about it, in case someone thought it was a joke.

Maybe it is time to delete this thread.  I was just looking at changes in the Wiki and saw that somebody had made a comment about this http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/User:Elf also a bunch of people have been asking in the IRC about it.  I am not sure the concept of the 'April Fool' translates very well.
