reality distortion field

reality distortion field

Reality Distortion Field (RDF) is a term coined by Bud Tribble at Apple Computer in 1981, to describe company co-founder Steve Jobs’ charisma and its effects on the developers working on the Macintosh project.

Tribble said that the term came from Star Trek.

Later the term has also been used to refer to perceptions of Job’s keynote speeches (or "Stevenotes") by observers and devoted users of Apple computers and products.

The RDF was said by Andy Hertzfeld to be Steve Jobs’ ability to convince himself and others to believe almost anything with a mix of charm, charisma, bravado, hyperbole, marketing, appeasement and persistence.

RDF was said to distort an audience’s sense of proportion and scales of difficulties and made them believe that the task at hand was possible.

PC fan mod (playing with scrap plastic)

I seem to have lost the metal case side to this PC case, but had this [much older] plastic tower case going out to the trash and thought I’d retrofit it to cover the exposed innards. Works just fine for now; eventually I’ll find the proper siding and cut the fan holes in that. I have also measured out a vent hole in the top of the case.

I seem to have lost the metal case side to this PC case, but had this [much older] plastic tower case going out to the trash and thought I’d retrofit it to cover the exposed innards.

I couldn’t find the front of this case either, so the HDD/Power LEDs and the reset/power buttons are from a different computer case all-together. You can see them kind of hanging down to the floor. :oP

Honestly, I like the trashy ‘hack look’ this on this case, with a lot of the bare case exposed.. My previous case sported a sweet "hanging fan mod" to push air to the CPU and RAM, but left the innards too exposed. See here: flickr.com/photos/jpl3k/1984471884/
