Re: Bought this (Modern) hardware today

Welp, I purchased another piece of modern hardware a few days ago. It's a mini headphone amplifier that provides kickass audio quality. Here are some pics. https://www.betaarchive.com/imageupload/2019-04/1554422831.th.7923.JPG [click to enlarge] The front side of the amp. On the left are the audio …

Re: After you die, who inherits your computer?

No, actually, there are many young vintage hardware enthusiasts here at Vogons. You guys are actually the ones who will inherit this hobby and the preservation of this hardware in the future and I am personally glad young people are taking an interest in it. I think hardware is going to become more …

Re: After you die, who inherits your computer?

I'd probably just wipe the hard drives of my computers clean and sell them to people for free. But I'll be around up until the 2090's, so my PCs would be gotten rid of decades before my death :lol: After you die? No, I would clear the storage out of the computers before I die of old age, or illness …

Re: Any good Windows 3.1 games?

Is this even allowed on this forum? Because VOGONS doesn't support abandonware. But I could be wrong, because at least you guys are not asking for any downloads in this thread. Anyway, after a quick Google search, I found quite a few games for Windows 3.1x that most likely haven't been mentioned …

Re: IRC channel recommendations, and maybe a VOGONS IRC?

Discord can be used with a web browser so it works on numerous platforms. But the web client requires a modern (heavy) browser so it's not good for old computers. The desktop client is just an embedded Chromium-based browser which runs a HTML/Javascript interface. That's somewhat true, I guess. I'm …

Re: Bought this (Modern) hardware today

Hi all, Got some pretty cool news. Found a ThinkPad T420 on eBay for $63 shipped. It is a complete rig, came with i5 2520M, 8GB RAM, 1600x900, 128GB Toshiba SSD, and 90W charger. Has HD3000 graphics. The issue was a corrupted Windows 7 install so looks like the guy didn't know how to fix or had …

Re: Bought this (Modern) hardware today

I got this cute little USB cooling fan from the company Hayata a couple days ago, https://www.betaarchive.com/imageupload/2019-03/1553467930.th.70432.JPG Well, it's not "little". It's like the size of a softball, but still. https://www.betaarchive.com/imageupload/2019-03/1553468115.th.65009.JPG The …

Re: This forum is very hard to use from a mobile device

unless you have permission by Qbix you can't see the white font. He is talking about the new look that is being worked on behind the scenes... I'm guessing I do not have permission then... ._. Does this whole "white wording" thing mean that there's going to be no more brown words? And if Qbix is …

Re: This forum is very hard to use from a mobile device

There is work being done on a forum upgrade which will include a different look, it should work better on phones, but might not be as great on very old machines. Those haven't been tested yet. The dominant color will continue to be purple, except the font is currently white for better contrast. But …

Re: IRC channel recommendations, and maybe a VOGONS IRC?

Sometimes I think that we should switch to a modern Discord server, because Discord is what a lot of people are using to do instant messaging these days, plus you can do voice chatting to talk to people easier (however that's not mandatory). You don't even need an app or program to use Discord, you …

Re: This forum is very hard to use from a mobile device

Luckily, I don't always bother using certain websites on a mobile device, although most websites, including VOGONS, do work okay on tablets. On a side note, I do kind of agree with Qbix updating the forum, because according to the footer, this site hasn't been updated since 2013, which is not a bad …
