A game from my past, Math Ace. From what I can tell, this game isn't covered anywhere else on the Internet.

So, yay, first! 😜

Some crappy old 720p no-name LCD. The badge says "TCL", but who the hell knows 🤣.

I have a professional quality CRT for actually playing games, but my video camera has a hard time with CRTs.

Yes, I missed number 22. I had the previous update mis-labelled at Ep 22 in Final Cut. 🙁

Nice haul!

Some comments:

- FDD on SCSI, interesting.
- VibraC got a meh 🤣
- I've heard of this HDD project which used flased BIOS chips on network cards with BIOS sockets that - will do LBA translations for HDDs. In short: 127GB HDDs in a 386
- Pet hate. Video cards with memory ripped out 🙁 Happened to me with a VLB card as well. Only saw it on the photo after buying it.
- Fujitsu, nice
- 72 pin ram, never hurts
- Interesting motherboard...
