My short post on Responsive Designs vs. Traditional Builds is up on
$WORK’s blog. While I’m not a designer, playing with this stuff has been fun.
Responsive web design makes CSS almost programmerish by adding what is
essentially a if statement to the language.
(I also worked on a screenshot-tastic post for iWeb FTP for people getting
started with the service that probably isn’t of too much interest to this
audience, but consider it linked-to.)
I’ve got a new bottom bracket
waiting for me at home. My old one, well, it’s a little rusty.
And I dumped quite a lot of time into getting quieter cooling on my ProLiant
ML115 G5. I use this server-grade hardware as a gaming PC, and I’m kind of
picky about noise.
I replaced the stock 92mm with this Arctic Cooling F9 PWM controlled one (amazon affiliate link)
because there’s a four-pin header on the board. Unfortunately, as part of the
POST process process the HP decides to slow the fan down, and then
immediately panics about the RPMs going below 1900. Once it does that, it
I spent some time playing with it and even resolved to use a small
microcontroller to “fake” 1900RPM to the sense pin, but in the end just leaving
the fourth pin disconnected (pictured) keeps the fan spinning fast enough and
it’s quieter than the stock fan even when it stays at 100% all of the time. I
butchered the old fan’s cable to do this and then used heat-shrink to make
everything look un-butchered.
