Old hardware giveaway thread.

Postby liqmat » 2017-7-25 @ 17:04

After my disastrous Amiga/C64 Forever giveaway in the Milliways topic area that I pulled the plug on since I thought there was no interest (I was dead wrong) I thought I would try to make it up to my friends here at Vogons. The rules are this. You can guess only once every 30 minutes and don't use multiple accounts please, keep it honest. Don't be naughty.

I am thinking of a number between 1 and 60. Winner gets the card below. It's untested, but it looks to be in very good physical condition.

I put Deep Thought into it. It is not 42 nor any others previously mentioned. Keep going.

I'm not interested in this particular card, but you should disclose who is responsible for shipping costs, to avoid any confusion later on. :)

Good luck with longevity on this thread. I did a big giveaway a few years ago and the mods "strongly suggested" I shut it down.

By the way, I threw this card in my old Gateway 450 machine and it posts and boots into Windows 98. Did not download/install the driver, but it works.
