I got a Mac Mini too, one of the last ones with the G4 processor before they went to the dual Intel chips, except mine is a 64mb video card. Not bad little machines, how do you like yours?

Wow, a brave soul to do water cooling. I did that a few times when I worked as a tech, but never really needed it for myself. Okay, so here we go...
(I'm going revamp my arsenal once I'm done saving rainy day money)

1: Discordia (I name them )
Intel P4 2.8 (HT w/ 800fsb)
2 gigs PC3200 ram
Nvidia FX5900 Ultra
120gigs (80 + 40)
in a Thermaltake Xaser III case

2: Maiesta (linux box, Gentoo, game and file server)
Intel P4 2.4 (HT w/ 800fsb)
2 gigs PcC3200 ram
Nvidia GF4 Ti4200
1.0 Terabyte hard drives, 4 10 gigs in a RAID for OS
Current uptime: 87 days (automatically shut itself down during power outage)

3: Raiju (linux box, Slackware, webserver and proxy)
333mhz celeron (woot)
40 gig HD
64mb ram
Current Uptime: 1 year 6 months 21 days (keeps going on the UPS during outages )

4. Opticon (Guest computer)
800 mhz P3
bleh
Pretty much a Sony Vaio

5. Tandy (girlfriends computer)
2.0 P4 gen Celeron
1 gig PC3200 ram
200 gig hd
on-board graphics

6. Valkyrie (linux box, collocated server)
Don't even remember anymore...sheesh. AMD 64 of some sort...



My e-***** is thiiiiis big
This is all stuff I've pretty much picked up from where I used to work, people would not find the cost of repair worth it so they just leave the computer with us to avoid paying the fee for diagnosing. Worked out great for me.

Oh, and pics!




before I switched over to that linksys router, but never got around to taking the after pic

nice I wish I could spend that much on computers. I need to updgarde to x2 cpu'* from amd. I have total 4 system. Well really 3 because one is really old ,but it makes a good router/firewall on it. I would realease the spec of my system but that is really against my security policy. I will tell u I have about 6 montiors with in couple of feet from me. Two of my machine use dual display. That is pretty good up time. Right now my linux box has been up 3 months 21 days and 8 hrs no battery backup though.
