I think it's exaggerated clean room garments for employees that manufacture the CPU's.

Why are they missing brackets? :confused:

Awesome! I was doubtful at first, but the card is worth every penny. Absolute smooth experience, works both in DOS and Windows just perfectly.

SL28R, week 41 of 1997, so this has been an expensive Pentium II. It will be installed on my soon to arrive Asus P2L97, which will form the basis for my new DOS system that replaces my slow Pentium Overdrive system.

Bought the following during my thrifting adventures (rainy day):

NEC MultiSync 1850e monitor with dual VGA ports (this'll be perfect for my Windows 98SE machine with 2 GPUs inside) for $4.99 which could use some cleaning, otherwise is good shape
NIB SIIG I/O Controller Board Game Port/Serial Extension A.3 (never opened, still sealed) for $5.99
A Kensington Mouse-in-a-box (Serial and PS/2 with the adapter to convert from Serial to PS/2) for $2.99
Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri in fantastic shape for $0.10

Almost purchased a Compaq Presario 1650, but, I don't think my Compaq charger would fit in the charger port and I have no idea how much it is (cash only for that place).

Oh my. That tower case makes me moist.

seems to be quite cool and unique.

Whats the upper card? Ethernet? There are 3 of them...anybody recognizes the logo with the dots?

I'm really looking forward to testing it out! I just got home from a belated Thanksgiving dinner at a friend's place yesterday which saw me staying overnight due to overindulgence. :D Pounding headache but I wanna put some time aside to install some of my old Sierra games and let 'er buck.

Because some people would rather destroy very valuable old computer equipment for 50 cents worth of gold than take a few minutes to look them up and see what they're really worth. Thankfully I got these before they were damaged any further. The brackets were already gone though sadly.

This community is fortunately awesome at preventing at least some of that irreparable damage from happening.

As for me, nothing very retro - bought a couple more Gotek floppy emulators, have a few extra systems those can go in now.

Definitely! I'm not going to pretend that I can afford to save everything just for the sole reason of saving it (I frequently resell items after fixing them up and testing them), but it does feel good to make an uncommon item usable again.

Today I purchased a new-looking Logitech C7 serial mouse, with the original box, to go with my IBM 5150. It is much more period correct than the MouseMan I'm using now. It was fairly cheap too. Can't wait to get it!

I have one of those mice but no drivers. Can you upload the drivers ?

Got this board for few € some days ago, sold as a potential dud. Worked fine on first try :D
Needs a clean though, it has a layer of hard dust on it that won't come off easily.

Literally another motherboard underneath, and an HDD too?? I'm surprised it's not shorting any traces. (Maybe the layer of hard dust helps prevent that...)
