Brothers an sisters in data.  Today is your day.  You’ve worked thankless hours patching servers, running cable, installing operating systems and configured innumerable routers and other network devices that move bits from point a to b and then some.  You’ve answered the “so, what do you do with all those computers when you replace them” […]

…and look, there’s no USB ports or drive for the user to stick “things” into!  I’ll take about 400 of these, thank you. Caption via Reddit: “It took about two months for my friend to build this, I am very impressed.” Very nice, submitter, very nice indeed. via: [Reddit/pics]

Fun diversion: The Restart Page

Wow, this brings back memories.  I should have linked this for Wayback Wednesday, but it is just too cool to share. Watch the boot sequences for some major OS’s throughout the past 20+ years.  I spy OS/2 Warp, early MacIntosh releases, Windows 3.1.  There’s even a NeXT bootup in there. Enjoy via: [The Restart Page]
