but it is a 36" Proton CRT with native 720p and 1080i. Lovely picture but it weighs around 250 lbs and wedged so thoroughly into the entertainment center that I might need to cut it out.
It came standard with 512k but could be upgraded to 640k by inserting individual DIP RAM chips into sockets on the motherboard.
Of course the 1000TL had DOS 3.1 and Deskmate in ROM so you could decide to count that as well.
I had Hayden's Stimulating Simulations and a big pile of magazines to copy programs out of. That's pretty much like ROM.
You underestimate my next battery pack. It will be in the neighborhood of $800 when you add in the battery management board and quick charger. I have some lead acid on it now for testing the controller at 48 volts but that is impractical for real use.
I used it to flatten out the hills 16 miles each way to and from work.
The best thing about it was passing the spandex-clad Harvard bike team while pedaling 20 mph uphill with my flannel shirt flapping in the breeze. Priceless...
The NiMH pack lasted until 2011. The bike is now offline until I can scrounge the money for a LiFePO4 pack.
Imagine coming up from a stone cold shutdown. What would be a super thing to have? How about DNS and DHCP? AD too if that's your thing. Some nice little box that can wake up your LAN in 5 minutes so you can start troubleshooting the boot storm as the rest of your VMs try to start up and all get stuck in the doorway like the Three Stooges.
...it would be like the "iPad of sanitation," he said.
There's an app for that.
I own several composting toilets. I am looking forward to something far better.
If you want to "flush" to the composting location then you need an ultra-low water head. This is problematic for many reasons. If you don't want a flush then you need to rely on gravity and need a vent fan to keep the bad air out of the house. This is problematic too.
If the compost gets too dry, the process slows, and you end up with fungus that attracts fungus flies. If the compost gets too wet, well ewww.... you have to clean out the system before it overflows.
In winter the compost may not generate enough heat to keep the system from freezing. More ewww...
It is especially difficult to run a system with guests. Imagine spending 10 minutes explaining how to use the toilet. What can go in, what can't, how to flush, what is that stuff down there...
Might get more Muslim visitors that way.
You can catch it in the act.
I just turned off WiFi and 3G, forcing my iPhone onto AT&T's 850 MHz 2G network.
Now any data transmitted triggers a very audible BRAPPPA-BRAP-BUZZ! through the speakers.
Turn up the volume and go to bed.
On EDGE it will take a long time upload all that data. It will be quite obvious if this is really happening.
Also, use cheap speakers, fancy ones might be shielded. I didn't even plug them into the phone.

There may also be "other" applications. I'll get back to you on that.
I can toggle the output between 1080i and 720p, the screen will display both natively (and a bunch of other resolutions too). Non HD channels are scaled to 480P.
