Longhorn M2 definitely was something

02 Aug 2015

Posted by Melcher in Vista, 7 and 8.x

What I often read and for some time also believed myself is that both Longhorn Milestone 1 and Milestone 2 are just some planning stages. This seems somewhat plausible since we simply do not have any material that proofs the existence of these milestones. At the time, however, it was common practice for Microsoft to plan the most critical features for the first two milestones (correct me if I'm wrong). 

 

I noticed a debug message in 3683's Avalon HWND dispatcher* saying something about M2 specifically. Code snippet:

 AvDebug.Prompt(this._dispatcherThread == Thread.CurrentThread, "For M2 the dispatcher is single threaded.  Calling this method from another thread will not do what you expect.");

So, if you ask me that's really interesting. 

 

* The Avalon HwndDispatcher basically mimics a normal Win32 app's window procedure. It's connected to a UiContext (later UIContext) which manages the user interface threads.

Watercooled Dual Pentium 2 SLI build

29 Jul 2015

Posted by soulman in Offtopic

as seen in various places on the web, I have decided to undertake a project of rebuilding my dead 440BX based Celeron 400 into a dual PII with dual Voodoo2 SLI monster. This is going to be filmed in parts, part 2 will be the installation of the second CPU, loop plumbing, some custom wiring etc. Part 1 is the preliminary testing, which is the video linked here.

 

To do list:

Document the overclocking of the CPUs (currently running at 450MHz from 400MHz)

Wire up the fault LED (custom wiring)

Wire up 4 fan connectors for custom 2 pin fans

Install 35mm fans for exhaust

Install radiators

Install second CPU

Modify waterblocks to fit CPUs

Install the rest of the loop (pump and res, maybe voodoo chipset coverings)

Install new RAM

Possibly install a new bootable SATA/ATA card

Modify case and move the intake fan assembly backwards

Figure out what to do with the front panel USB headers

Tidy the cables

Leak test

Install DirectX

Install a bunch of games to try the SLI with

Possibly install some drive caddies

Possibly paint the chassis white

Possibly find a rack and install this with my rackmount audio gear for kick ass 300w channel audio capability

Wonder what the motherfuck I spent all of this money on

‚Äč

 

Any suggestions welcome, thought this would be a fun and different project.
