Looks like the new apple Lightning connector - Lightning to Micro USB
you win a cookie!
damn handy little thing, not needing stupidly expensive apple cables
Very true unless you get your cables off of ebay
already done that, but the variety of micro USB cables simply outshines that of apple.
i've got $2 retractable cables in micro USB that are thinner, lighter, and more compact than anything apple - and with that adaptor, it works just fine.
then theres my official samsung charger, with its long and really really thin cable - that charges my mouse more than my phone XD
Not to mention how easy apple cables break i already went through 5
Makes me think of the fact that I left the regular charger of my phone at my parents' place so that my mom can use it to charge her e-reader (I use a data cable to charge my phone when I am using my PC). Long live universal cables!
Sexy, up-close and definitely hard:
i'm getting some IT goodies for christmas, will put pics up when i have my hands on them. this thread should get busy.
My Christmas tree
My poor GTS 450, It is missing a few little components from a little mishap, I think I could replace them, but I have no idea what to buy so it just sits on my desk...
Start a thread on it. If you dont have the parts, there are guys here that can lead you in the right direction. I did something similar to a foxconn motherboard. a little soldering later it was up and running again.
Yeah, the 450 is a great card. If you have the soldering skillz to repair it, somebody here or on XS will be able to tell you what components you need to fix it.
Alright, I made one, hopefully I can get some help fixing it.
i took a few nice shots of a samsung 500GB, if you know what i mean
That is how companies should destroy their data.
A shredder is even better than a gun.
Yap, a lot of data can still be recovered after a disk has "been shot"
Back OT, I just opened a computer my dad has upstairs and lo and behold the awesome!
My interest was grabbed (at first) by the awesome GeForce2 MX 400 (I have fond memories of that card together with C&C Generals):
(behind it a random 56k modem and a 3COM network card, probably a 3C905)
But when I started checking out the mainboard, I spotted this awesome piece of technology:
Yeah Baby! State of the art electrolytic capacitors powering this ton of awesome!
Don't mind the corrosion! that's just a small price to pay for years of service as an accounting pc for a car parts shop!
The KTA Pro is from the world-renowned motherboard manufacturer "Lucky Star", specs here: http://www.motherboard.cz/mb/luckystar/KTAPRO.htm
here is the board in its natural habitat, a box, where it is safe from people actually wanting to use it!
(buy one here: http://www.pramool.com/cgi-bin/dispitem.cgi?632745)
you going to re-cap that beast?
This thread should be good today
I'm actually thinking about bringing it to our techlab, OC it and see when the caps give out.
Of course, I'll make sure there are before/after pics and videos (for the greater good of geeks!)
one of my christmas presents
Screw that. There are some awesome socket A boards out there begging to be put back in sevice. I have a Lucky Star slot 1 board that works great except for the fact it's a slot 1 board.
Just testing the camera on my HTC 8S
... and the Sphex <3
One of the computers I've been working on.
