what u got?
I noticed in a thread about win XP people started listing what systems they ran at home and at work - i thought this was interesting but couldn't be assed searching through 50 comments about win XP to see 2 or 3 interesting comments - thus i've started this thread. If people would like to list what sort of technology they've got knocking around - not just computers - home cinema systems, gprs devices, robot butlers etc.
Personally i have 6 pc's - 3 386's with 4meg of ram - all running debian slink, a 486/32meg with a *full-size* scsi hard disk (about the size of a house brick!) running debian woody, a k5 166/16meg that gets a new os every week and my main pc - a 700mhz duron/512meg dual booting w2k and debian sid. My other passion besides computers (and skateboarding, but we'll not go into that now) is home cinema - i have an all sony setup with hella good 100hz 32" flatscreen and a dvp s550d dvd player with a tae9000es preamp feeding a tan9000es amp - all wired together with top of the range ecosse interconnects.

amds are for people living in federally funded housing.
dual booting a *nix os and windows is for pathetic wannabes who can't handle unix and want to impress their friends while doing /sv on IRC and setting up shell accounts on their dial ups.
Having 4 386s running linux is the most pointless thing I have ever heard, all that a 386 running linux is good for is using VI. Using a switched network for four machines is a waste of money. It is obvious that you are all just trying to impress your sad computer friends with pathetic powerless machines that barely use 10% of their efficiency.
As for paulcottingham you cannot have 500mb of ram in a PC, and running SQL 2000 and Oracle 8i together is a good way to eat up all your ram and sounds absolutely ridiculous.
oh and Focmaester, solaris 8 kicks open bsd's nsa backdoored ass on a sparc processor any day.
finally a 32 inch television is pitiful.
