How many computers in the house?

2 completely operational, and 2 that only need ram or a video card. :slight_smile:
BUT 4 that have ruby installed!

~Jeremy

quoth the Todd B.:

I went to the Lone Star Ruby Conference last week. 7 of us went out to
dinner one night, and we counted up how many computers each of us had at
home, that were operational and could be use if needed.

We counted 53 between the 7 of us. I only have 6, others had over 14.

What’s your inventory count?

Todd

I love collecting computers. So far I have:
3 x x86 Desktop/Server (Linux, FreeBSD)
1 x x86 Laptop (Linux)
1 x Sun Ultra 60 (Linux, Solaris)
1 x Apple PowerMac G4 (OS X)
1 x Apple PowerMac G5 (Linux, OS X)
1 x SGI Octane (Linux, Irix)

Yes, Ruby runs on all of them…

Let me know if you acquire a Tom B. :slight_smile:

For the record, I don’t actually own anything, but I have at my
disposal 2 PCs. One is dual boot Win XP/FreeBSD (Pentium 4), the
other is OpenBSD (AMD). I named them after porn stars.

I have 8… but one is a 486 with 16MB RAM… my friends came to my
house during that time and said, “wow, you have a lot of RAM!”

coz at work, I had a 486 33MHz with 8MB RAM, and a 386 with 4MB RAM…

and now, in about a month, maybe I will get a Mac mini or Macbook for
the Core 2 Duo and the OS X 10.5.

What’s your inventory count?

Beth, the G4 iBook that has survived snow, candlewax, cat claws, beer,
chocolate and oh so many crunchtimes, and Mina, the Intel Mac Mini
that is sitting on my desk with a hard drive full of work. Also a
random old Dell box as a fileserver, soon to be replaced by Carla, the
G4 iMac.

So really just starting to become a collector. Ask again in 10
years. :slight_smile: I doubt I can sell any box on eBay, they would grow eyes and
cry.

Zen . . . ? I was expecting you to next say you have an iMac or a Mac
Mini called “mr. roboto”.

My mini dictionary says it can be interpreted in several ways.
Especially depending on the way you read it. Separately or together?
Reminds my of poetry in one sci-fi novel where the words could make
different sense depending on the way you put them together into
sentences…

Counting not only mine, but also the SigO’s:

In summary, counting the SigO’s two systems, I expect that in very short
order there will be roughly ten operational systems running here, a
majority of which will probably have Ruby on them.

You haven’t addressed Todd’s original question. He didn’t ask about
ownership, he asked computers you “had at home, that were
operational”. Whether you own it or not wasn’t part of the requirement.

I have 3, but up to 3 more may be on the network at any given time.

  • saurasaurus: Rev A MacBook, 10.4, ruby 1.8.6 and 1.9
  • servasaurus: PPC Mac mini: 10.4, ruby 1.8.4
  • deadasaurus: Beige box Dell machine. Debian Etch, ruby 1.9, No RAM

You should buy a Zaurus and call is zaurusaurus …

Still 0, at the moment. Got rid of an 8 year old linux box a few weeks
ago.
