The Null Device
According to a utility that came with my ORB drive, my Mac has two internal IDE buses (which are used for the hard disk and the CD-ROM), However, according to this document, whether or not it can make sense of more than one device on each bus depends on whether the logic board revision is 2 or newer. Apple System Profiler says nothing about logic board revisions, but also says nothing about ATI RAGE chipsets, which suggests that it may be one of the older ones. Which means that bolting on a nice big hard disk may be easier said than done...
Bizarre artifact seen at computer swap meet: The MegaDuck. This bizarrely named unit is a handheld video game, similar in form factors to the GameBoy, though not compatible. The one at the swap meet came with a cartridge called something like "Break The Wall", which I would guess would be a Breakout variant. The stallholder, no doubt a perpetual optimist, believed someone would buy it for $28. (Several years ago, I would have haggled with him and probably taken it home; but after several moves and the hassle of getting rid of a box of 8-bit computers I had collected for curiosity value, I'm somewhat wary of picking up anything that's too obscure to sell and too cool to trash.)
The latest NtK turns a critical eye towards the Napster/BMG deal:
Also, it'll be far funnier to watch, if the Napster/ BMG deal turns out less like AOL buying Netscape, and more like the Sex Pistols signing to EMI.
