Re: Planning to install SSD in my Windows 98 machine. Help, advice, suggestions, etc.?

Haven't read the whole thread, but in my experience, you don't need to obsess over finding the best SSD for a Windows 9x or XP system.

Assuming that old PC hardware even requires a "supply" in the first place isn't really realistic. These are luxury items. If someone does this with a necessary item (toilet paper, food, water...), yes, it's despicable. With a Voodoo 5? No. I find this stance disagreeable as well, for different …

Strangest modem ever... with hardware wavetable.

Here it is. 20200623_132155 (1600x1200).jpg 20200623_132201 (1600x1200).jpg Yep, an ISA ESS Audiodrive ES1868 + ESS Tel.eDrive based modem which is also equipped with an ESS …
