Mostly bughunts and tuning, where there is time.


EYO in Sydney, Australia sells an RPC-1 (that is, not internally region-locked) DVD ROM drive: The ASUS DVD-E608 [link fixed]. Bought it. Neat. Also got a faster CPU (an AMD K62/500). Running the CPU at an FSB speed of 100Mhz caused me all sorts of grief, all of which looked like faulty RAM. The RAM is PC100, but to get the thing to work properly, I've had to back off to 95Mhz. Still, it works. Software decoded playback under Windows is Spiffy(tm), and it all seems to work quite well.

One CPU pin was slightly bent on delivery, but it was no biggie. I highly recommend them.


Family illness and death: Pneumonia, death, strokes. One down, and probably more in the queue.
