I remember our school lab getting Classics. We were amazed, no more green monochrome AppleIIes! Wow! You could actually change text color and font with this thing -- and what kind of disc do you put in there?! :D

I need to find a digital cam to take some pics. I have a veritable museum of computers and parts over here.

Slowest I've used recently was a 286.

Still have a 486DX2/550MB hdd/36MB Ram that i can go online with. Use it for mp3 file server and mp3 playback.

At work I have a 75mhz running win95 as a print server in the laboratory. Works really well! Can't remember the last time it was rebooted. It might be a good candidate for the uptime team :D

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
