First time I've used fireworks since I was an adolescent. Only recently am I back in a state where I can get "the good stuff" again. They're not as fun as they used to be.

Re: What would you do different?

I'd know that adding a math coprocessor won't do a damn thing for games on a 386SX. I'd reconsider our PCChips 486 build. I'd reconsider my socket-7 upgrade path. Buy lots of used consoles, games, and ISA sound cards at the end of the decade.

Re: Weird GeForce 2 mx400

I just noticed in your picture there's a 0326 date code on the PCB. I don't know exactly when the MX400 cards came out but I think it must have been in 2001 - so that card is much too new to be a prerelease card. So it's weird that it has that BIOS on it, unless there's some other reason that " …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

Over the last few days I was trying to install linux Mint as a secondary OS on an Asus A8N-SLI Athlon64. It has a GT520 video card which has good video decoding. Ran into major problems with Mint 20 and Mint 19, most critically with the NVidia drivers. Each offered driver on both those distro …
