  • Mood:

A scheme is hatched

I ordered the parts for the new-and-improved MACH F. In the end, I just chose to use the same components egraaf used -- he confirmed that such a setup can play HD content without any problems, so why second-guess that?
I did make an important change, though. Instead of the two terabyte harddrives, I ordered an 8GB CompactFlash card, and a CF-to-IDE adapter. This will result in faster boot times, less power consumption and less noise -- I hope. I expect the components to be delivered with a few days, so that should be nice.

Also, I decided to learn myself how to make chainmail. But it may take a few weeks before I have something to show for that.
