Thanks Xsivforce - now if only I could figure out what to do with it - maybe just set it up in the living room and let people ask me what it is and then turn it on and show them the funny green monitor and not to mention the floppys (I think they were like 5 1/4") - my granddaughter (13 years old) told me they were too big for floppys!!! Maybe one day I'll dig it out and see if it still actually works - it did about a year ago! :D

Wow a 1 MHz CPU, and a whopping 64 KB of memory! I'd keep it and then auction it in a few years - make a few million ;)

I myself have an old Compaq with a 133 Mhz Pentium, 24 MB RAM, however it does not have a hard drive at the moment.

Actually - the thought crossed my mind! Perhaps a trade-in for a new Apple??:cool:

Amber was kewl also!

I think I still have the Okidata dot matrix printer I used with it somewhere in that closet also! I guess I'll really have to check it all out someday. - yea - I remember the rpinter used tractor feed and had a stand to elevate the printer so the paper could go under the stand! :cool:

I once posted on a Compaq Pentium 60, 16 MB RAM, 539 MB HD and onboard 512k video memory. The best thing about it is the keyboard, it's a 3 in one. The keyboard doesn't use a normal serial connection (ps/2,serial etc), but a strange 10 pins connection, with a square plug. Through this connection not only goes the keyboard, but also the mouse (using a ps/2 connection) at the bottom of the keyboard and the sound (using a speaker on the keyboard itself or a 3,5 mm plug for headphones)! This thing still works, and is used for the in-house administration.
I believe I posted a message on NTFS, it was a biatch though to use IE3.0 with a 800x600 256 colors resolution, damn tables didn't align properly, so the screen was all messed up.

If you want to go _really_ slow I have an old working 48k Spectrum at home :D I even used a ZX81 I seem to remember :D

A friend of mine had an Amiga when we were kids, but I still preferred my spectrum.

Got my fist 386sx when I was 12 though.. I remember getting a soundblaster as well.. The PC could Actually do Speech for the first time!

Aah, the Nostalgia, its a shame because all the hyperkids today probably would experience technology changing quite like it did at the beginning of the home computer movement :D

I wonder if you could make a Spectrum or Atari or Amiga internet compatible.. then it would probably be the slowest internet able system :D
