SickBoy said:Leif - what was the deal with the floppy thing? We know you had it wrong the first time (and honestly, who DOES get it right the first time? I don't think I ever have), but when you switched it you got the floppy drive fail error? That seemed kinda weird to me. LOL those computers were probably designed to explode if assembled even the slightest bit incorrectly (hence the guy in NY who apparently fried his PSU making the same mistake)...
And look at it this way... if that other guy hadn't won he probably would have gone home and committed suicide because he wasn't "King of the Nerds"....
Surely you all know the one thing you are 50% likely to screw up, no matter how good you get.
Go ahead, take a guess.
Even a seasoned professional like me makes this mistake occasionally, because FLOPPY DRIVES do not always conform to the standards that other devices conform to. How often do you get keyed cables? How often is the drive's connections proerly keyed? And how often does pin1 go next to the power lead, like it always does for IDE or SCSI?
I'm probably going to sell both of these processors on EBay this weekend. I see that they're going for $164 currently at NewEgg and I know that won't last very long. Wait a couple weeks and I could lose $20 or more value on each one. Plus they're both T-Bred Rev A's (AXDA2200DKV3C). If I was actually going to go AMD, I want at least a T-Bred B but more preferrably a Barton. I don't think I'll wait for Hammer yet. Originally, I was planning to go with a C-1 P4 and I like that Asus Granite Bay mobo. I'm still formulating my decision.hey, cool, i was rooting for you man! even though you didnt win the big prize, congrats! 500 bucks is a good chunk of cash, and that will be a nice upgrade from your 750 in the sig.... but can i have the other 2200+?
