I'm really really jealous about that AdLib coin - is it made of real gold like the AWE64 one? Is there any chance that there could be more of them where you got this one? If that's not a secret, could you tell the story of this coin?

Meanwhile I've also made a nice deal today, seller's picture provided 😀 Hope it works as I plan to build a Unobtainium VLB machine with this one, the CT6200 I posted earlier, and some other nice pieces.

I hate to burst your bubble, but pretty sure the NexGen PF series chips with on-chip FPU only work in PCI boards. Nice rare find though 😀 Is that the one you bought off Hugo?

Yes, exactly.
Could you recommend me any further reading on the issue you raised? Would really appreciate that!

And here I though I wouldn't have to feel jealous today...

Um, I am feeling a lot less jealous about this one anyway. I will have to wait till the next rare opportunity to have this one in my collection. 🤣 Way too much for my taste! Back to the coffee cup and ink pens for me! Not sure how Artex does it! 🤣

It was said a few years ago by a collector in CPU-World forums. Lot of CPU experts over there, you'll usually find someone who has tested pretty much any x86 CPU.

Artex, would you like to join us in group today? 🤣

No really where do you put all your stuff? Id go insane trying to find away to store it all.

Here! I am going to pick up two more shelving units for all of my retro PCs still in storage. I still put all the out-of-box cards in tubs/boxes so that stuff won't be on display.

I wouldn't want to either. As a side note, i don't think i could walk away with "One" piece of hardware if i had the chance! There is seriously sooo much nice hardware on display. I'm happy to see two boxed items i own on your display! hahahaha 😵 😵 😵

Let us know when you plan on unloading some of that stuff will you? It would be more profitable than buying a bigger house! 😀

Hahaha right?! Boxed stuff is so pretty! It's like a Christmas of yesteryear with all my wishes that never came true in the early 90s. Lol.

"Member artex has spent a questionable sum on vintage hardware"

Confirmed. Is questionable. But impressive.

Amen to that brother. As a youngster, all I could do was imagine, and dream. Now- well, let's just say dreams are easier these days. 😉

I followed the links in your signature, and all I gotta say is... I would still like about a 2 minute shopping spree with your boxed collection!

Admittedly, yes. Regrets = None.

Less money than...
gambling?
drugs?
cigarettes?
horses?

If yes to all four, you're in good shape.
