LOT8's...

Wonder whatever happened with that anyways..  Used to be a popular topic around here, and now I never see so much as a whisper about it.  Pretty sure that there are still people who want it though, right?

I just spoke to my contact in San Antonio about this and this is his exact statement to me.

 

"We are testing the Intellistar computers in 4 different VRAD's at the moment and see how they work inside the cabinets. They can't do it by VHO since The Weather Channel has different reporting stations for different parts of town."

One intellistar per VRAD?  Sounds expensive.

No, it's per Video Hub Office (VHO). That's the builiding that all the VRADs connect to in a given area.

He specifically told me that they were having to put these in various "VRAD cabinets" due to the various part of town and reporting stations as well....

Re: LOT8's...

Maybe someone can explain the last paragraph here?  Thought I'd go for another take besides wikipedia, but the article is talking about the competition.

Re: LOT8's...

The paragraph is saying that the newest Stars use regular PC hardware.  The previous versions were purpose made computers using proprietary hardware (SGI = Silicon Graphics Inc)

Re: LOT8's...

But that wouldn't be something that fits into a VRAD?

I saw a computer while visiting my grandmother in the hospital today that was so small but it was a full computer.....so not ruling it out at all though.

Re: LOT8's...

The new Stars are supposed to be rack mounted server types of computers.  No clue what kind of room there is in a VRAD
