Nuke computer parts and eggs video
Ever wanted to nuke computer parts but were afraid you might destroy the family's precious microwave oven so opted not to do so to play it safe. Here's showing you what occurs when you throw stuff in a microwave for a good old nuke. I also wanted to see what happens when nuking an egg.
DDR2 memory sticks might be the new thing but DDR memory is still around. However, if you test it out with memtest with Ultimate Boot CD and it fails it's time to toast it for good.
Wireless has taken over...say farewell to NICs and Cat5 cables.
56Kbps = 5KB dialup
128Kbps = 13KB ISDN
1.5Mbps = 185KB DSL
3Mbps = 366KB Cable
4Mbps = 488KB Cable
5Mbps = 610KB Cable
Routers that aren't wireless bury them in the grave.
10Mbps = 1.19MB LAN
11Mbps = 1.31MB 802.11b wireless
54Mbps = 6.44MB 802.11g wireless
100Mbps = 11.9MB most LAN speeds
1Gbps = 119.2MB
Cable Modem I spent $150 on. So I move and Cox cable says I can't use it and have to buy a new one. Fiber is just around the corner right?
Firefox and Thunderbird CDs. I think after I purchased these within a week they were outdated since new versions were out. No offense Mozilla foundation.
Linux CDs that are dated. Among the many linux distros are Ubuntu and Mepis.
Microsoft Optical Intellimouse. I prefer my wireless Logitech MX1000 Laser mouse. Optical mice are dead if you haven't heard. I was surprised what reaction this had (think red optical).
80mm case fans with LED lights....whoopee doo. This won't fit in my mac mini. Oops, I left the plastic packaging on out of fear of cutting myself opening it.
Surge protector with only 4 sockets. How worhtless is this one. 8 sockets at minimum to avoid the death sentence.
SCSI card back in the day when I would buy all SCSI hard drives. Ok SCSI isn't dead for servers but for workstations it pretty much is. So are $900 SCSI scanners.
I also heard that an egg will explode. Let's blow these rumors to pieces and see if they are just that...rumors. Forgot to do tinfoil and for that I'm truely sorry. Perhaps I'll do tinfoil and a harddrive and add a 2nd video. Not sure though as the top hinge broke off due to the explosion.
