One thousand

Postby xjas » 2017-12-29 @ 08:19

1000 dumb posts about decades-old computers on this silly board. :P (That's 0.976 kiloposts!)

To celebrate I finally gave myself an avatar. I will buy you a drink sometime if you know what it's from.
Hope you guys are having a wonderful interstitial holiday week.

That's all. Back to Freedom Planet.

Cheers! I did notice the avatar in another thread and thought "Finally!" LOL

Postcounts are too silly to care about for me. When I hit 10k it's just going to be another day.

Geforce256 isn't released as a beta on New Years '99 under the Quadro brand
386DX vs SX isn't about a missing FPU

Dang. I skip over usernames and just know everybody by their avatar (or lack thereof). Have to update my brain database now.

As long as clueless1 doesn't change that wacky face, I'll still like vogons.

For awhile there, I was changing my avatar to a character in the game I was currently playing, but this one fits my username so well I think I'll stick with it. Lucky you. ;)

I already forgot when I hit 1000 posts and was never keeping track of my posts to begin with...

I guess I should check when my party is.. And that's the entire point of this post..


In other news, how about that there x86 "flaw" and/or side channel attack vulnerability all over the news today. Intel stock down, AMD up, forums ablaze with fighting and speculation.

Oh, and Cyrix is going to start making CPUs again under the Via name supposedly.

Have a nice day!

edit: dang only 433, I am a terrible poster. Must step up my posting.

You meant... IDT, I guess. The Centaur design team did the WinChips for IDT, and then the C3/C7/Nano/etc for VIA.
