Re: Lets get Sir Clive on the new £50 note!!

One problem.

The scientist must be dead. They must have ceased to be. No more. They must be an ex-scientist.

Re: Quanta Magazine

I know I have a couple of items for the next issue. A long article that goes with a hardware release, and a short announcement that goes with another hardware release. Now, I know... Y'all are thinking "whatever Dave".... but as Nasta will happily chime in, the 4MB RAM expansion is 99.5% d...

Re: A QL look-alike PC keyboard

I own one of these as my daily driver keyboard. It only looks like a QL keyboard due to the lighting. The keycaps a smooth and level, with a slight contour. Honestly, the photos are misleading. It's a membrane keyboard with very little travel. Also, half the numeric keyboard has stopped working afte...

Re: Computer/shipping/work woes...

I have returned from my Guinness World Record attempt. Yeah, we *smashed* the old world record. Was 600 miles in a jon boat, now is 2,244.5. In a hackintosh, MacOS cant apply patches on non-Mac hardware. The patching happens from the EFI before the OS even boots, but the EFI on hackintoshes is 'repr...

Re: Computer/shipping/work woes...

I've been enjoying the Texas summer, been out on the river. A bit like a siesta, in Texas, no work really happens from about July 1st to about September 15th... Had a 122F day and mostly over 100F days. Mid 40C's.... On Saturday I am heading off for 3 weeks to work on a Guinness World Record attempt...

Re: 8301

I did a little work on the 8302/8049 but it came to nothing. It's just too complicated for me. Now I've had a computer failure and lost *everything* so....

Re: Computer/shipping/work woes...

Tomorrow's the big day to work on getting back up and running! *fingers crossed* PJW: The MBP isn't susceptible to this type of infection due to Apple's very specific UEFI. If it was that and you had this type of malicious code on your system the OS wouldn't launch. MBPs with i7s have always been th...

Re: Computer/shipping/work woes...

My CPU fan started running more, and my kill-a-watt (power consumption monitor that you put between a device and the wall socket) showed power consumption jumped from averaging 115W at idle to 195-200W at "idle". The task utility showed a very low load and low temps, but the EFI/BIOS hardw...

Re: Computer/shipping/work woes...

USPS 6x4" labels with the CN22 built in, the FROM: address is tiny, the TO: address is prominent. They did just start allowing recipient phone numbers, and to tariffed countries require it. The label was printed the day before the tariffs came into effect. As for the CPU/motherboard: from packe...
