[FP] Let's Vote on Foldy6!

Per this thread »[FP-Board] Board Input Needed-Foldy6

We are needing authorization for the FP Board to expend funds for the replacement of Foldy6 that has met its maker...

There is already a $250 match donation by an anonymous Angel, plus some recent donations to the treasury. This, with the match from GarG is a wonderful deal for everyone involved. Perhaps we can even get enough in the near future to set up another box for someone?

Anyway, I am getting ahead of myself!

Please respond in the thread if you are "for" or "against" the expenditure of FP donated funds as outlined for the replacement of Foldy6.

Thanks!
-Matt

Yes, assuming the plan is to buy another Dell quad (because of the warranty) with a legit Windows license. If funds allow, a license for Vista Premium or Ultimate and the RAM upgrade to 3G would be preferred.

Yes to the Dell Quad, Windows, and the one I saw the link to was already 3GB RAM so I think we're on the right track, correct?

For reasons I have expressed before, I concur. Vista Basic is a non-starter. If XP is still available, I would recommend that. If Vista, 32 bit.

And, I vote yes.

It comes with Vista Home Premium included in the $499 price.

quote:
Genuine Windows Vista® Home Premium Service Pack 1 [Included in Price]
Would that suffice?

$120 extra for Vista Ultimate seems a bit pricey. I don't think a folder would need entertainment or business benefits?

quote:
Genuine Windows Vista® Ultimate Service Pack 1 [add $120 or $4/month1]
Dell recommended: The most complete version of Windows Vista®. Delivers both home entertainment and business benefits.
I would suggest the $10 upgrade to the 3GIG 800Mhz ram, rather than the standard 3GIG 667Mhz RAM, however. As Howie pointed out in the Dell thread.

Other that that question, and suggestion, I voterd Yep.

Yes, to Dell quad with Windows XP 32 bit edition 3GB RAM etc. etc. etc. as noted earlier in the thread...
What's the new balance in the treasury? Are we getting close to forcing GarG to take out a second mortgage yet for the match?

I can tell you that our anonymous donation of $250 has been received by Sarah. GarG had better break out the pen! Or the Debit Card! Or the Cash!!!

The problem with the Home Basic Froggy received is that it didn't have Remote Desktop and he couldn't run VNC on it. I don't know if Home Premium will do that or not. If it does, I don't see a problem. If not, then I think it needs an OS which will cooperate, for the Op who doesn't have a monitor for it or a KVM setup that will work.

I agree with the choice of 800Mhz RAM.

It doesn't support RDC by default. One of the many things that M$ decided to cripple in the lower versions of Vista.

VNC will run, but it is a pain to get working correctly. And it uses quite a bit of the system resources compared to other alternatives.

As for RDC... It is there... just broken. It can be fixed quickly, but I won't go into that unless someone asks.

Personally, I have always just used the free logmein (when possible) with no issues.

IMO, how one does things is as important, if not more important, than what one does. The key here is legal.

I think, in view of the issues TwoFrogs had with his broken OS, the foldies should be provided with a functional Windows OS.
