Very little at the moment. The plan is play with old videogames with RGB 240p signal via some kind of adapter, xrgb3, framemeister etc instead of expensive Sony bvms. Also play with Photoshop 7.0 and and old japanese printer capable of printing in white for making stickers and stencils for other hobby stuff. Old bicycle stickers, printing logos for videogame cases, Photo retouching, vectorizing rare game covers etc.

Hi, my name is Matheus. It is nice to meet other old pc appreciators arould the world
This is my current project. Restoring an old intellistation 6868 reaching the system limit.
I will try go over 2gb of ram memmory, dual Pentium IIIs with MSI 6905 adaptors
maybe custom BIOS. At the moment my problem is locate another IBM P260 bezel or monitor after
Fedex damaged this one.


Some of IBM's designs are just awesome. I have a white P260... it's looking way better in black though.
Picture quality's sweet on these... sucks that yours took a beating. Has picture reproduction been compromised due to the shock?

Here's six of my CRTs all connected to one computer.
MVC-221S.JPG

I was using a 1.33GHz Tualatin in this picture, but ended up switching to a Pentium 4 when I recorded this temporary setup so that games wouldn't lag so badly when stretched across all of the monitors. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgJCO0Kc9CI

It might look cool at first glance, but it's really painful to use this setup due to the wide gaps between the monitors. Rearranging my entire room for this was no fun, as all the heavylifting slowly tore up my spine. The footage was recorded four months ago; now I'm back to my normal six seat setup, and I don't want to try this again.

I'm impressed by this thread. Especially that Argentine guy :happy:

I'd love to take picures of mine...maybe I can find some time...they ain't much, but CRTs are pretty much at the bottom of my priorities.

I still need to get pics, but I'll spoil what they are:
-Sony CPD-G220R Trinitron Multiscan 17"
-Compaq 151FS "QVision"

I'll have pics of these sooner or later :)

22" iiyama Vision Master Pro 512 HA202DT, found on a fence post at the curbside this summer. I took it home with my bike, it is in a pretty good shape and pretty sharp. It can run up to 2048*1536@85Hz, I use it with 1600*1200@85Hz.
