Anybody here remember making single sided 5 1/4 floppies into double sided with a hole puncher? hell anybody remember 5 1/4 floppies? yeah I am getting old, 33 and still gaming but at least I can afford buy games and booze now. Speaking of which I off to enjoy the latter... later :cheers:

    About 6 months ago I threw out a 4.77Mhz 8088 PC that I found buried in the back of a cupboard, it had a turbo switch that brought it to 8Mhz, yippee.

    Oh, it also had a 5 Meg hard drive and a CGA video card, and sported 640kb of RAM.

    I bought that computer in 1982 and it cost me $5000.

    That was my first computer, I learnt how to program in BASIC and learnt all of the DOS commands (including switches) off by heart.

    Sorry guys, hope nobody wanted this computer, it served as a very large book-end for awhile but then I threw all my books out thus rendering the computer useless for anything else.

    That could have been the focal point of my computer museum.

    I still have a working C-64 and an Atari MegaST. The Atari ST is still great for midi editing and sequencing. Oldest one I remember having though is a Commodore Vic 20.

    Scratch that.....I forgot...I still have a working Osborne military surplus with a 5' amber monitor. It will still boot and runs CPM. It is definitely useless.
    Anybody besides me remember what CPM is?

    Oldest Mac LCII 80 meg HD! My fav game was specter... that game was way ahead of its time as far as looking 3D.

    386 with a 128 meg HD.

    Oldest (slowest) still in use is a P200 lappy with 160 megs of ram. I bought it new a year ago.

    Robert, you definatly threw away an antique... and if it was in good condition, possibly a very valulable antique...

    Here is a similar system 3 years newer than yours that sold for 65$ plus 25 shipping. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=2023368609
