More of the odd stuff I've found....
- Skunny Kart installed on a 386SX that I had....and it had AutoCad (and no 387)....not sure what the person was thinking they had, 🤣
- Computer owned by a Rabbi that had a Christmas Windows 3.1 screensaver on it
- Dell 325SX with an entire Dentist's Office worth of WP51 files including PAitient Data - WIPE time
- Way way back.....Got a box full of CD's of Software, in that box I found Porn DVDs, not a good hiding spot, 🤣
- Gateway Essential 550C - got from a co-worker, had software for performing "acts" on a Webcam, another WIPE
- NEC Versa 40EC had Ford Motor Company documents on it, kinda cool since I own a Ford from the time that laptop was new
- My Core 2 Duo Desktop's motherboard was once owned by Patterson Dental, been wanting to change that boot screen for awhile
Before I was retrocomputing I did not find a "hard drive" per se, but I was at school. At this point it was around 2001 and we had a mix of IBM EduQuest 486's running Windows 3.1/DOS over the network, some IBM PC-330 and PC-350 machines running 95 or 98SE, and a few PC-300GPLs running Windows Me. Anyway, in our video productions class we had a 486 EduQuest that I decided to make a floppy disk and run A26 2600 emulator on during a break in that class - well, I put in the floppy, went to A:\, and suddenly up pop's files with EVERY student's name on them, found my own, found my classmates, people I knew, girls I liked, the whole shebang. LIttle did I recognize I'd basically got into the student records - talk about lax security!
Funny enough later that day I opened up Pitfall! in English class on the PC-300GPL - nobody cared, except a small few who thought I was a "god" because I managed to get something "interesting" on that computer (even though it technically never was on that computer, I ran EVERYTHING off a Floppy disk).
