Hardware

A member of our forums pointed out this url for a japanese web site with a USB Drive-Bay PulseBox. Needless to say, this is the coolest piece of hardware on the planet for true begeeks. Is there anyone out there who can translate this, has built it, or has a similar project going on?

    Translation

    Are there any linguistically gifted folk amongst us who can provide a (rough) translation?

    USB-Break out

    Seems like he’s even got a USB-Break out box with 4 Ports in the 3,5″-bay. Anyone knows where to get such thing..?!

    Ok, I found two suppliers, seems to be a quite common thing in the end…:

    Re: Translation

    Thanks, works nicely.

    I should obviously keep a closer eye on babelfish, last time I looked it only had European languages, as I recall.

    Re: Translation

    OK, tried it. So what exactly is the BecOs? :)

    WOW. Using Babelfish I can certainly generate a lot of English words off of that page, but that is most certainly not English I’m reading. We have a long way to go, Star Trek boy!

    I guess after looking this over I’m not a true Begeek, because though I’ll admit having a hardware pulse on my PC would be pretty damn fine, I can’t imagine giving up a precious drive bay for it. Maybe I can just sit it on top of my desk?

    It’s not. If you care about CPU cycles, don’t use USB for trivialities like this. Avoid an USB mouse like poison.

    USB vs. regular serial

    Well, I’m not sure how the two compare, but I think what Nutcase was referring to was the coolness of having hardware blinky lights on your rig. That’s cool.

    Plus, building it yourself can be cool too, i.e., a techy sense of accomplishment.

  11. Ruprect Says:

    blinky lights + extra I/O

    what would you guys say to a blinky lights box that included extra input/output? Say, a built-in motor driver output and a limit/reed switch input?

  12. SD Says:

    [No Subject]

    I have look also at main site.
    There a lot of other BeOS apps there, but i cannot understend purpose of those apps:(. Maybe this programmer made also any other attractive program.

    Ugh. Damn Babylon. Why we cannod understand easily ourselves?

    Which app didn’t you understand?
    Maybe i can explain those as possible.

    Re: blinky lights + extra I/O

    I think thats why he did the project.

    The translation says something about the difficulty of working with USB and how this should help.

    At least thats what I interpreted out of the translation.

    you mean “Babel”, not Babylon

    I think you are referring to the tower of Babel. Humanity tries to build a tower to the heavens, therefore God causes human speech to be split into many incompatible languages.

  18. Duffahtolla Says:

    you mean Fish not Tower

    I think you may be confusing Babel Tower with the Babel Fish from “Hitchikers Guide..”

    You see Babel Fish have a direct and pertinent correlation to speech and communication (or lack of it) whereas the Tower of Babel was merely a government construction project gone horribly awry.

    In any case, I’m quite sure he did not intended to use either form of babel since he clearly is refering to Babylon, as in Babylon 5. A space station devoted to bringing peace and understanding to the querrolous and mistrustful species of our universe.

    I quote, “In the year 2257 A.D., ambassadors from the Narn, Centauri, Vorlon and Minbari species converge for a crucial peace summit on the immense space station Babylon 5, which is run by the politically neutral humans. But the Vorlon ambassador, Kosh, arrives early, and is discovered outside an airlock, poisoned and dying. If he dies, the conference will fail and the galaxy will be plunged into war… “

    Man, I wish someone would either hookup with
    plat’home or go directly to a case badge mfg and
    offer these for sale !

    I’ve got some BSD badges on some servers that were
    made by ScotGold Products.

    Please clarify what you mean. I use a USB mouse without any problems.

    Re: Translation

    I got in touch with the author of this site,
    momoziro, and asked him if I can translate his
    page about USB Drive-Bay PulseBox into English.

    He wrote to me that he’s wondered at this sensation, and he been translating the page with
    many difficulties.

    He permitted my succeeding of the translation readily.

    Now I’m translating the page, but I’m not
    experienced in translation into English and not
    familiar with hobby electronics, itfll take a
    week or so to finish the translation.

    So please wait with patience.

    Re: you mean Fish not Tower

    I’m afraid that you are very wrong. as cool as Babylon 5 is, it has nothing to do with babelfish.
    the name “babel fish” according to the “Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy” is called the babel fish as a result of it reversing the effects of language distortion such as that at the tower of babel.
    The theory is that the babel fish is inserted into ones ear and the fish then intercepts any spoken language and eats it, it then excretes (shits) the digested language into the aural canal of the host in the hosts native language.
    the two names are connected.

    regards norton. aka (he who is full of trivial shit)

    http://babelfish.altavista.com/ will translate your pages from almost any laguage to almost any language.

    fishing with bable rock

    Granted the translation reads like a proverb and could be accidentally prophetic.

    Suitable display at Linux Central

    I have found a suitable display at Linux Central. It is made by Matrix Orbital.
    It comes with a mount for a spare 5 1/2 slot or a dual. The cost is $ 101.00.
    Go to www.matrixorbital.com to get the manual for a LCD20xx or LCD40xx.
    Go to www.linuxcentral.com to get the display it self.
