  1. That's exactly what I'm doing with mine (if the bulk-order goes to a second round). We recently disposed of some old IT gear at work, including a couple of Planet Ethernet (urgh) 24-port switches in nice shallow 1U cases. As soon as i saw it I thought "GM5". Activity lights sound pretty useful to me - especially one pair of I/O lights per port.
  2. Es uno cloudio! Uno cloudio? Si, uno cloudio! Ay ay ay! <serious> Reporto especial - uno cloudio. /Cuts to images of panic, old women praying in the streets etc. With thanks to the Fast Show, and apologies to any spaniards out there.
  3. OK, this is just embarrassing. After a couple hours messing with soundcard settings, wading through the XP-10's awful menu system while constantly repeating "It's gotta be something weird with this new keyboard" and looking for the magic menu setting "make things work" I look under my desk and what do I see? A 15-pin D-sub plug. Like the kind that should really be connected to my soundcard. :-[ I swear, some days it's just not even worth getting up in the morning. Thanks S1, Goblinz - I know the question was pretty damn stupid to begin with, looking back. Not as stupid as I bloody feel now tho ;D
  4. Hi All, I recently acquired a Roland XP-10 that I'm trying to get talking to my computer. I've hooked it up to the MIDI cables from my soundblaster (I know, I know...) gameport, turned off Midi Local on the XP-10 just like it says to in the manual, and... nothing. I've got no midi going into the PC, and when I send stuff from Midi-Ox the XP-10 gives no response. Has anyone on here come across anything similar? I'm pretty certain that it's not a problem with my PC, since my old keyboard controller (an ancient Evolution branded as a Commodore) worked fine and the only thing I've changed is the keyboard.
  5. Try it with Malibu, it's the original multi-purpose fluid - drink, toothpaste, aftershave, the list goes on...
  6. Worst show I've ever been to was when I took my young lady to a Funeral For A Friend show. Dear God, they're bad. Now, I'm sorry to inflict this on you guys but since you brought up the topic of the worst song evar! I thought I might share this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCPSh47gHz8 Please, forgive me.
  7. Roland JX-3P with PG 200, slightly broken (brilliance fader, volume pot both damaged): http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Roland-JX-3P-Classic-Synth-with-PG-200-Programmer-PG200_W0QQitemZ320266603833QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item320266603833&_trkparms=72%3A638|39%3A1|65%3A12&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14 Seller wants £379.99 buy-it-now or best offer, plus £35 UK postage. Unfortunately for antipodean midiboxers, he'll only ship to the UK, Europe, Asia and the Americas.
  8. This one? [img width=200 height=171]http://www.maplin.co.uk/images/300/a68fr.jpg £4.99 - http://www.maplin.co.uk/module.aspx?ModuleNo=49106&doy=26m6
  9. If it ends up anything like what I read about the vX a while back, it's gonna rule. I'm not one for hardware sequencing, but I'd build one just due to the sheer weirdness you've got going on there.
  10. Nononono, I was puking from watching Stryper, I think your choice of power cord is awesome! Shoulda made that more clear, grumble grumble...
  11. Trent Reznor did the music for the first Quake game, then id software contracted Sonic Mayhem for Quake II and Quake 3 Arena. Anyone with a copy of UnrealEd and the first Unreal game should be able to help. You can export the .umx files to .s3m's in UnrealEd, then play/convert them in Winamp. I'd offer to do it for you, but I only have Tournament, not the original unreal.
  12. Is this the mythical vX?
  13. That was me ;) Thanks! Just to re-iterate the message on the page, make sure you look at the pin assignment of your Bridge Rectifier very carefully before using that layout - the one I used when I made my PSU apparently has a different design to most. Nothing to worry about, but just make sure the correct wires go to the right terminals on the chip.
  14. D'oh! completely missed that bit. :-[ 2A wallwart, then a 78S05 to make use of it :P
  15. I think I just threw up a little in my mouth. @Foona: you're right, that's one sexy PSU. Only thing that I'd change is instead of the illuminated red rocker switch i'd have one of these:
  16. I think replacing your 7805 with a 78S05 should give you 2A to play with instead of one, but I'll happily yield to those with greater electrotonical knowledge than my own...
  17. That's what I thought I'd probably have to do. No biggie really, I'll just keep an eye on the Fleamarket ;) /Edited for my poor attempt at spelling.
  18. Is it too late to jump in on this one? Or is it unlikely that we'll make it to the 750-chip level to qualify for another order?
  19. No problem. As always seems to be the case on the 'net, it's hard to judge exactly what tone someone was trying to take.
  20. When I made that page, I wrote next to the circuit diagram (quote)Bear in mind that your rectifier and regulator might not have the same pins in the same places as mine(/quote). After you pointed out to me that mine were non-standard (I had no idea, I just got 'em from the local electronics shop) I made the text bold to draw attention to it. No offence meant Wilba, but I ain't sure what else you want me to do... PS: Yes, I know the page is horrible. i was a lot younger then, and didn't know CSS. Or good taste. PPS: Even worse, that's as far as my MBSID has gotten yet - work, girlfriend, life etc. Gonna have to order some parts soon, to get me back into it...
  21. Damn, that's even worse than having to fix it yourself - there's absolutely nothing to say that the problem won't come back, typically at the worst possible moment.
  22. I actually downloaded this purely to see what the context was I hasten to add, and... there is no context to it whatsoever. The background on each page has been replaced with a rather attractive brunette who leaves nothing to the imagination.
  23. Individually controllable breadth and depth for both this *and* that! that's killer! And it has industry approval from Good Housekeeping! I want one in my rack right now... Unfortunately my power strip can't supply 12KW and my rack won't hold 130lbs... :-[
  24. March of the pigs! (Effectively in 29/8 at 269bpm)
