I just ran across this while scouring YouTube. I don't know if it's oldhat or something someone might find interesting.

ive looked all over and cannot see anything that resembles a battery.
where the dickins is it hidden? and is it an easilly replaced battery or a soldered on nightmare????

Windows 7 is what Microsoft should have released as Vista - it's basically a reliable, stable, solid version of Vista. So, I quite like it, and I plan on running it daily, but it's not exactly a tour de force from MS or anything

"I haven't been following any IRIX roadmaps lately, but it seems that IRIX 7 will likely never happen. I went to SGI's Developer Forum in '97, when 6.5 was relatively new. Several of the sessions talked about all the great things that they were doing for IRIX 7, due out no later than the following summer. 5 years later and we're on something like 6.5.17.

Back in the day, IRIX was the best Unix out there, bar none... "
