    Re: What is the oldest computer you are using?

    My oldest computer still in regular use is my Dell XPS233 running Win95 and is mainly used for Excel VBA macro programming and AutoCAD 2000. However I do spend more time on my Lenovo laptop running Ubuntu 12.04 as the Dell is no longer connected to the internet as I cannot get a wireless card to run under Win95.

    I use two tin cans and a piece of string to surf the web.

    You gotta wiggle the string a bit. Otherwise the internets can't go down the string.

    An 1980 Ohio Scientific C4P with 48K of Ram. Yes I said K.

    Still runs fine.
    I'm a man, I can re-install, if I have to, I guess!
