Re: Bought these (retro) software/OS today

in Milliways
Just won an eBay auction for 99 Amiga magazine cover floppies :) It's weird - I got an Amiga 600 a year or so ago and modded it immediately with an SD card/HDLoad etc. and can play every game ever but I don't find myself ever wanting to do this.... but give me a bunch of floppies and I can explore …

Odly .. I have bought a number of GPUs from a retro GPU collector in the Netherlands, amazingly fast shipping to Australia too .. they have a nice Geforce 256 DRR that I am tempted to buy since I dont have one yet. only thing stopping me is the current exchange rates between Euros and the AUD which …

. You seem to not want to un-evade the main point which is that these middlemen, they are useless, they don't produce anything, they are harmful, they are unneeded. They don't bring anything positive to the table and this is the point you were skillfully pretending to not be there. No evasion, such …

I’m just going to restore the 420 to original spec and likely sell it, I don’t really have a use for it but hated the idea of a working system being crushed for scrap. I suppose that you must have some good quality packaging materials if you're selling complete systems. Or are you selling like …

You're missing the point. On multiple levels. So nevermind that. I can't be bothered to untangle all the spaghetti you create. We were conversing, not arguing. When you no longer have an answer, whether it's not wanting to read, not wanting to or being able to comprehend nor compose or whatever, it …

I have a Dell XPS420 which uses the BTX form factor, other than that I dont really go looking for BTX stuff, only grabbed the 420 as it was dirt cheap, in mint condition and was headed for the scrap yard. (I see no reason to scrap a Q6600 with a HD2600XT in it) It is a server class board rigged up …

If we did air ship bases we could live in the upper atmosphere of Venus. Parts of the Venus's upper atmosphere have earth like temperatures and pressure and would keep us above most of the sulfuric acid that makes up the lower atmosphere. I can't wait for Rocket Lab to launch their in house Venus …

The best way I could think of would be to somehow block part of the sun irradiating Venus (think something like a layer of satellites blocking the sun partially) to cool Venus down before actually going to the surface to start building most of the stuff we'd need. Not sure how long it would …

Mars's problems (low gravity, distance from sun) don't preclude it from terraforming but there is an alternative - Venus gets plenty of sun, gravity close to Earths. Terraforming seems as much if not a greater challenge but as both seem multi-generational it's not something anyone could see a ' …

Well its huge for me but I suspect you may have me beat XD Still I have 28 or so 775 boards and I stopped counting the CPUs, I guess the rarest board I have is the PWM Digital EVGA 790i Ultra SLI but I also have a Blackops Foxconn board that still confuses me with its bios, it was clearly built for …

I think zyzzle is talking specifically about scalpers, who usually have enough money to buy all the stock they can find of a certain product until it's not available anywhere else and then they resell it at overinflated prices. So I definitely sympathize with him on that, since these scumbags are …
