It boots to a gradient and thats it. After fiddleing, testing, spraying chips with ice-it and all that crap, I find that theres no rhyme or reason to where it boots to except it just wont boot past anything useful.
So, I paid $50 after tax for... a Cisco paperweight.
Now, I know that its hard trying to run a business these days, but christ, these people get paid to take these things and then they sell them. Can you imagine a racket like that anywhere else? Its crazy, and Im not shopping at 3R Technology anymore.
So, in other news Im searching for CHEAP Cisco phones, mainly some 7960s
These phones are to be used at the convention, but will not be owned by the convention, because this is a technology test and Im assuming all the capital costs for this test, as we may find that one brand is better than another between now and the next convention, or the hotel may come forward and offer us use of their phone system or some other change.
I also want to make this equipment portable and usable in sitiations like Amateur Radio Emergency Service and such.
