Re: How often do you purchase retro hardware?

Not very often anymore. I usually only buy hardware when I find that I need it for something, the last thing I bought was a graphics card for my Tualatin rig since its old card was constantly overheating, that was over a month ago. Prior to that, it was some stuff I bought at RE-PC last July. I …

Re: Windows 7 question

Good technique and helpful information. I always wondered if Windows Vista/7 could be livable without activation. I may try this out in the future.

Re: Is there Anyone "Overpaying" for Hardware and Proud of it? Well, maybe not Proud, but...

Re: Windows 98 DirectX Framerate Limiter

By any chance would the dxfpscap utility work with the PC version of Spiderman (2000) on Windows 9x? I remember that game had a bug where you couldn't get past the Scale the Girders level without using FRAPS or a similar utility to limit the frame rate to 30 fps, so I figured it'd be worth using …

Things you regret passing up on?

Since we have a topic on things we regret getting rid of, I thought it would be appropriate to have a topic where we can discuss things you regret passing up on during store visits. At one point, I remember finding a Toshiba Pentium 1 laptop at a Value Village store. I used to regret passing up on …
