Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

I confess that when I moved from a house to a small apartment, I took no less than SIX functioning PowerMac G5's to the garbage dump's e-waste section. I tried selling them, I tried giving them away, and gave up out of both frustration and time constraints. I'm sorry, I know somebody out there …

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

Some people are probably going to hate me, but I think Amiga's failure was well deserved. Commodore wanted to make the system cheaper to use for a home user and made some technical decisions that really hurt it in the long run (like sticking to NTSC and PAL video modes).

As a child I had access to my father's 486 Toshiba laptop (Prince of Persia, LHX, Supaplex, Blockout) and a Pentium 2 machine (went to my grandparents every weekend to play some Starcraft, Diablo 2, Black & White and Baldur's Gate). However, …

Re: Will s478, s939, s775 or AM2 systems ever get as expensive as pre-socket 7 systems?

It's quite hard to find 286-386-486 systems that are in decent shape (so no battery corrosion and doesn't look like it's been dragged through the streets to the recycling center) and I don't have to break the bank to get one. I pretty much gave up on these systems because there is too little gain …
