    The "New Toys" Thread

    When you get a new toy, post it!
    My Cars: 2008 Dodge Viper SRT-10 convertible (summer weekend car), 2001 Ford Mustang GT coupe (winter car & grocery getter)
    There is no replacement for displacement.
    - Wolfgang Bernhard, then Chief Operating Officer, Chrysler Group talking about the Dodge Viper SRT-10
    ... I ask Herb Helbig, vehicle synthesis manager for SRT and a member of the original Team Viper development group since day one, if they'd ever thought of adding traction control. "It comes with two," he says, pointing at my feet. "Learn to use them." Got it.

                            I know.. it's a relatively crappy Dell box. And yet, it's a p3/1ghz machine (these cpu's cost over $1k usd when they came out), with a 3com onboard nic. It's quiet and small. It's going to be my new router...

                            And then.. my new room, living with some friends, is my real new toy. Here's the latest computer setup:

                                What Linux distribution is it you are using? its a shame imho to use a Dell for that since as far as i know Dell sells them only with Windows, so you probabely have a licence for Windows on that machine. (but i agree with you Linux is more suitable in this case)
                                thnx viper... youre being very helpful

                                    uhmm.. it's OpenBSD.. as can be seen in the photo
                                    Yes, the dell probably had a Windows license attached to it, but I've never seen that. I just had the box given to me for use as a router a little while ago.

                                      Wasn't this the "New Toys thread", not the "your desk" or "your computer" one?

                                        a new computer isn't a toy?
