And I seem to be unable to locate my wireless mouse It’s right next to me…
I had this ANCIENT (2000) DELL desktop I am probably going to show you tomorrow… I don’t have administrative control, though… (the things are odd about it, I will say tomorrow)
I guess that even though it’s off-topic, I still just shouldn’t type random things. But hey, if cat videos are here, why this can’t be here? (I mean, this is more or less closer related to arduboy than a cat do, after all.)
I only recently threw out the last of my SCSI drives and also found a new box of 3.5” floppies whilst having a clear out . I think the oldest thing in my inventory now is a Pentium 3 laptop that I occasionally use with a flash2advance parallel multiboot cable.
Very cool … I had a 5363 at home for a while - it used to hold up one side of my desk. When these beasts were sold, IBM were calling them ‘entry AS/400’. The 400 was (and still is) a masterpiece. I still work for an IBM Business Partner and we still sell AS/400 (iSeries) but nowadays they are only replacements and very few new footprints.
This windows don’t have the hidden “Administrator”, “guest” account do not have write to System32, don’t have minesweeper or solitaire or 3D pinball or kloudlike or freecell, have sound device (audio out) on the motherboard but system says there is no, there is wired network port on motherboard and a telephone thingy as expansion. (“A”…something something protocol) that the system also says no. Furthermore, only 2 out of 4 USB port is useable (and is USB 1.1 standard), the others can’t be detected (possibly USB 2.0).
Ran on a SEGATE 64GB HDD (IDE port), some plenty amount of RAM (seems like there is 4 GB of it, two occupied socket), a Intel Pentium IV, LiteOn CD ROM, a floppy drive, and a half-height video card.
Lots of things are Made In China. (SUprisingly the Segate drive had traditional Chinese characters on it saying Made in China).
Power unit (should be original) seem to be a not-very-good un-branded(some garbage brand) power unit with 6 power outlet port BESIDE the motherboard (so I can power another 3 drive, after the ones used on the HDD, the Floppy, and the CD ROM.
The 3.5 inch IDE don’t match with the 2.5 inch IDE…sadness
I plan on running World of Tanks on it, after a full restoration (of “sound device”, “internet device” and “USB 2.0”) and a better display card. Probably gonna flash a better BIOS on it.
Oh the CMOS battery? GIve me a reason that thing is still working.
And our little Arduboy runs twice as fast. (and somehow we were complaining it being slow and useless)
But speaking of RAM, those old machines may still win. @uXe
You can’t play World of Tanks on those…
Yeah? I have a PALM V that I had.
Heck. I have this old electronic clock since before computer…Yes it does.
It’s as useless as talking to some guy who were already working before my father’s born…
So what is everyone doing with the Mega32U4(plus some capacitor, resistor, buttons, screen and LED)?
