Today was a good day 😀
#1 and 2:
Micronics 80486 ASIC EISA 50MHz and a CT2290 SB16. The motherboard is slightly less pristine than promised, the battery has clearly been removed - and not a moment too soon, there's nasty green residue on the nearest two components, though in such small volumes I'm not hugely concerned:
Hope to get round to firing this beast up tomorrow. And the CT2290 - well, probably the nicest SB16 - non-PnP, real OPL3, low self-noise and as few MIDI bugs as you're going to find on a SB16. It's a freebie from a friend I recently gave a dual Opteron server board. Do ut des 😉
This one is completely new and unused - an Acer Accufeel
6316 6312TW-4U with Acer Black switches - basically what you get if you put the top parts of an Alps clicky switch over a rubber membrane (similar idea to the IBM Model M, but far lighter). Looking forward to typing with this for a while, if only because it's ISO and I far prefer that to ANSI (or big-ass enter monstrosities).
