Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

Awesome!!!!. Last August we bought a really nice used projector of eBay and we just absolutely love it and our two boys just love movie night. We were supposed to have my son's birthday party at our local planetarium but with covid we couldn't so we bought the projector and a nice screen and …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

It's summer, and since summer always puts me in a PowerPC lovin' kinda mood, I brought out Super G5: my quad-core, liquid-cooled, air-conditioner breaking, crème de la crème of PPC rigs. And since tomorrow is movie night, I've decided to put those AltiVec-infused wonder cores to work by creating a …

Re: Retro computer builds that surprised you the most because they worked better than expected

One of my recent finds, a PII-300 based Compaq Presario 4850 from 1997 has definitely impressed me with its robustness. I decided that this would be "the" machine to install a pair of V2s in just because it looks so dang cool, and I'm honestly surprised that it works as well as it does. In fact, …

Re: Bought this (Modern) hardware today

I ordered another 32GB of RAM today, which will bring me up to a mind bending 64GB. That's 500 times more memory than my P3-550 had 20 years ago! I absolutely don't need that much memory, but the two empty slots on the motherboard were bothering me. Thing is, even after this upgrade, I won't be …

Picked up these items at a garage sale today:IMG_0045.jpg - Criterion edition of The Princess Bride on Laserdisc. - A lovely Staples Easy button that cheerfully states "that was easy!" when you smash it. - Chip Mitchell: The Case of the Stolen Computer Brains by Fred D'Ignazio. In hardcover, too …

Re: Leak of Windows 11

Microsoft should totally release this on XP's 20th anniversary. :grin: ... and they should take the time to get rid of some of the legacy components. The old control panel, for example. You mean, they should ditch the terrible "apps" and *keep* the old control panel as being something that works …

Re: Leak of Windows 11

Microsoft should totally release this on XP's 20th anniversary. :grin: ... and they should ditch 32-bit support. No one needs to run Windows 11 on a Pentium 4. ... and they should add OS-level support for different color profiles, like DCI-P3 for instance. Yes, it's kind of there in Win10, but it's …

Re: Windows 7 Retro?

Here's hoping they bring back a proper start menu (they wont) Here’s your sneak peek https://www.theverge.com/2021/6/15/22535123/microsoft-windows-11-leak-screenshots-start-menu?utm_campaign=theverge&utm_content=chorus&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter I'm actually really, really excited about …

Re: Windows 7 Retro?

I never thought I'd say this, but Win7 does kinda feel retro these days. I still have an offline Win7 machine at work that I occasionally use to run specific hardware and software. And if I happen to switch to it right after using one of the Win10 or Catalina boxes, then without fail, I immediately …
