Here's a test of your retro gear spotting skills.

Look at this listing

Now can anyone tell me why I bought the world's dirtiest Tandy 1000? 🤣

I had that tandy in my ebay watch list...and yes, the old school game blaster was one big reason I was considering it, but alas, shipping was way too much to where I live. If I didn't have an 8bit Adlib card I probably would have went for this one (if you didn't get it first of course 🤣 )....Anyway...Great buy! congrats...even without the gameblaster, if it works, tandy 1000 stuff is almost always a great buy.

Bought another one of these for a machine with no ISA slots.
These have really good dos support for a PCI card, and sound really good. Also good way to add hardware OPL to a newer 2k\XP machine.

Got a Cooler Master Wavemaster case , Another Aluminium case. the black edition

Since my Webcam is a bit iffy, here is a photo of it from a 2003 review

http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/2003-winter-cas … iew-834-40.html

this case is going to house my 03/04 machine, , meaning my Lian Li PC60 can be used with the Win98 machine (certainly an improvement over the boring beige case it was using before)

Weird thing about this case is that the "front" USB ports are actually at the top of the case, reached via a trap door. It does make it look unique, and keeps the font clean looking, but the door doesn't open high enough to use larger USB devices with it.

BJT 12mb/8mb Card?

The seller I bought my Creative CT6670 from (He listed at 8mb, it was a 12mb) put another Identical card up, using the same photos. I bought it straight away hoping it would be another 12mb. I received it, but even though its the same CT6670, its a 8mb card.
