    Re: Obsolete Computers 'n Stuff.

    Sorry about the fuzzy picture, I'm still finding my way around photo editing tools on Ubuntu. The pic is of my old desktop, which I've had about 10 years - the BIOS is dated some time round 1996. It came with Win98SE, a 1Gb hard drive and 64Mb of RAM, and runs at 133MHz. I replaced the origial HDD with a 3Gb unit, and more recently pulled out the sound card and modem to give it USB and ethernet. It's currently got a CLI installation of Ubuntu 6.06. The monitor's a bit unreliable and doesn't always work. It's a bit slower than what I've gotten used to - it takes about 3 minutes to boot into a usable state, but at least it works!

    There were some 3.5" HDDs that came from India some time around 7 or 8 years ago. From memory they had the the top face of the drive glued on & they were half as thick as ordinary 3.5 drives are. They were the worst drives I ever came across. Their life expectancy was very short.

    I remember the bigfoot as slow.

    This is my old Dell Inspiron 3500. I bought it new in 1999. It was my first computer.

    Specs then: Win98, 6 GB, 366 MHz, 32 MB

    Specs now: Puppy 431, 60 GB, 366 MHz, 256 MB

    When I took the picture, it was running Xubuntu 8.04, which ran really slow but it did run. Puppy is much faster on it.

    I want a commodore 64. I think it would be cool to play around with.
