    Unless you can use a different file system, file corruption will be a perpetual issue.

    If the NAS uses FAT32, you can pull the drive and put it in a Windows machine to run scan disk on it and fix...

    I second this.

    High end PC based analog DVRs used grabber cards like this up until around 2006 before IP NVRs started to supplant analog CCTV. There's no market for analog CCTV these days besides...

    No, it's not a stretch.

    Bog standard PCI which was used on 99% of consumer boards ran at 33 MHz and had 133 MB/s of shared bandwidth. AGP 1x (the first variant of AGP) ran at 66 MHz and had 266...

    So basically 423 is as bad as 603/604 Xeons.

    Be careful using metal nuts, many boards route traces right next to the mounting holes and you can easily damage them.
  5. No, not really. The only real benefit FAT32 has...

    No, not really. The only real benefit FAT32 has over NTFS is that it's a leaner file system and takes up less space on a drive. This makes it good for portable media like flash drives, but not much...

    Because even the slowest variant of AGP is twice as fast as PCI and it's a dedicated bus that doesn't have to share bandwidth with any other devices.
  7. No, you can't. If you swap horizontal and...

    No, you can't. If you swap horizontal and vertical sync on accident, you're going to blow ICs off the analog board. Been there, done that.

    You need to be 100% sure what the wires go to or you're...

    It could be core memory, but hard to really tell what it is without seeing the boards in the middle of the stack. It'd be interesting to see if that HP part number could be referenced from some HP...

    I use 22 gauge wire because I have at least a dozen 500' or 1000' rolls of it lying around.

    That's basically how to solder to battery terminals, either use a file or sand paper to rough up the ends and solder to them. Just don't keep the soldering iron on the ends too long or you'll damage...

    Driver instability is mainly a problem with VxDs that have direct access to hardware. Most drivers by the time Windows 98 came around had transitioned to the much more stable Windows Driver Model...

    When running Windows 9x, make sure that you have all of the correct drivers installed from the manufacturer of the device, not generic Microsoft drivers.

    SCSI is mostly backwards compatible, you can use adapters for 68 or 80 pin drives to work on the old 50 pin bus. I have several 68 to 50 pin and vice versa adapters that work fine on the piles of...

    I was given a Compaq Portable many years ago which had a Hard Card in it that didn't work no matter what I did to it. I took the cover off the drive to discover the head was fused to the platter, not...

    You said in the OP that you have 1 GHz Xeons installed, you're 66 MHz short of that.

    You could have a failed tantalum capacitor, they don't always explode when they fail and can cause weird problems.

    Those are some weird looking batteries, it's like they're AA cells put in a compactor.

    I found some on Ebay, but they're no cheaper than what you found. Make sure you do a capacity test to be sure...

    Running an older wireless router/WAP is really the only good way to do it.

    You can reduce the risk of someone hacking into it by doing the following:

    1) Turn off SSID broadcasting

    I find on machines where you can manually enter CHS information for the hard drive configuration, you can usually fudge the numbers to make a CF/SD card work on an adapter. Machines with auto...

    Socket 603/604 server boards are probably the worst retro system you could build. All of socket 603 and the majority of socket 604 Xeons were based on the Netburst architecture. They were slow and...

    Knowing which version of Phoenix BIOS you have won't tell you much. Phoenix only supplies the BIOS, the implementation of it is up to the vendor that uses it. This means that there can be drastic...

    Both TIFF and PNG support multiple color standards, but PNG is more appropriate for web use. TIFF is a very old format created in the 1980s by Aldus (now known as Adobe) for desktop publishing and...

    The image in a CRT is farther back than an LCD panel. LCD panels are as thin as a piece of plate glass and the pixels are generally on the back of the plate.
