Well, after a day of being on, no hangups. Def. bad FPU. Thanks for the foray into the 8087 :D I seem to recall an AMD 80287 passing through my hands in the late 90s (I could totally be mistaken) and wanting to hold onto it - I *may* have stuffed it into a friend's dad's old 286 (which he threw out …

So my super authentic 8087 from China is overheating badly... I wasted 4 hours trying to track down all the gremlins in the JUKO system when I accidentally touched the FPU: 57 deg. Celsius according to my point-and-shoot laser thermometer. I seriously thought I lost the system - random floppy read …

Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
Does anyone else just feel tired of PC Gaming sometimes? I spent most of my entire teenhood playing TF2 daily with online friends, hours and hours on end. When I was alone I'd spend my allowance on steam sales and binge great titles like Saints Row 3, or Borderlands. Im 22 now and I just can't …
