Bye bye beep codes

— 1:01 AM on April 13, 2000

I saw this bit o' news at the House o' Kyle, and I had to pass it along. Soltek, YATMM (Yet Another Taiwanese Motherboard Manufacturer), has come up with a motherboard that talks to the user, in lieu of beep codes, to communicate problems at boot time.

A nice idea, I suppose, but I tell you what: After a long, frustrating session trying to doctor a sick one of these puppies back to life, that talking mobo is liable to go flying outta the window here. Bye bye mobo.

Tip: You can use the A/Z keys to walk threads.
