    Talking I recall I had to keep a fan blowing on my 1541 to

    keep it from overheating. I've probably still got that (as well as my Vic-20 CPU and cassette drive) kicking around somewhere. Ran across my old IBM 5150 the other day--kinda wish I'd kept the original monitor and keyboard for it--I'm sure it would still fire up (Linux box?)

    Who needs a P4 with HTT anyway? Give me a 10 Mhz XT with a V20 chip, 640K RAM (150ns), an Adaptec controller and a 3675 HD (1:1 Interleave--smokin'!) any day. Might even splurge and swap the Hercules card for an EGA--WordStar sure would look nice on that!

    How far we've come--eh?

    I can remember using a Commodore 64 computer. So does that make me old?

    Cool How far we've come...

    My first computer was the TRS-80 Model 1 Level 1. It had 4K of memory! It was so primitive it could not even handle lower case characters. After a while I shelled out big bucks to have it upgraded to Level 2 which gave it 16K of memory and lower case characters. It was soooo sweet!

    And to think, today I walk around in the woods with a digital camera that has a 512MB SD memory card in it that is barely bigger than a postage stamp and cost about one tenth of what that extra memory on the TRS-80 cost.

    I'm older than both of you, and I STILL use DOS for one app at the office. Still writing .bat files. The real fun is getting them to work with Windows XP!!!

    Yes. I still have 2 Commodore 64's and a Amiga 1000 computer up over my garage in boxes. I ran a BBS on my Commodore with all the extended memory and a hard drive. I had it as maxed out as it could be. I don't know why I keep it. LOL

    Default BBS's

    Which BBS did you run? I had one for about 5-1/2 years from 89-95.

    The BBS I ran was not here in Maine. When I was in the military I ran one in Washington State from 1987 to 89. Then the Navy moved me to Virginia and I moved the BBS there from 1989 to 1991. But that was when the Commodore started lagging and slowly got outpowered by the PC. So I shut down the BBS and put it all in a box and there is sits still. I put a lot of money into that BBS. In fact all the equipment I have cost more then the computer I now own and I could not even give it away. LOL.
