Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

I had a 230W PSU and I undervolted it to 115W intentionally and the pc *boom* it blasted like a Dynamite. I still remember that day. same, but... unintentionally? i guess? I was looking for a volume knob like on some soundblasters, but found a switch instead and thought "wonder what this controls"? …
