Re: Using a pc as a radio transmitter?

IIRC Cold War spooks used to be able to reconstruct the images on CRT monitors from their EM emissions. Yes, there’s datasheets for these devices in some of the documents Snowden leaked.

Re: Your most surprising result in benchmarking?

My most surprising result when benchmarking is how much the video card matters even in old 386 and 486 PCs and dos games and how much you can cripple the system if you put a basic slow isa vga card to the system. You can turn a 486 into a 386 in games by doing so. Actully, I’ve recently been …
