guys... GUYS in ONE YEAR all the clocks will reset from 99 to 00, this will mess up everything EVERYTHING
PLANES WILL CRASH
NUCLEAR FACILITIES WILL BLOW UP
GLOBAL POWER OUTAGE
WE ARE DOOMED! DOOMED!!!
I didn't even have broadband in 99. My desktop was full of vidya shortcuts and my fap folder consisted of 10 or so low res images.
All I knew was Basic and Pascal.
Holy shit you guys... was the Blair Witch Project like... real?
I mean it seemed like it was made of actual recordings... Was it... Did it HAPPEN?
Scary shit, man, scary SHIT.
Up until the end of 1999 nobody really cared. They knew about it, but it was no big deal. In fact, the 'year 2000 problem' was a plot point in Office Space, it was the task Peter was hired for, as emphasis on how dull his job and his life was.
Then the mainstream media got word of it and sold it for mass hysteria, and then nothing happened and it was forgotten about
Remember that whole deal with the large hadron collier in 2008 or so? Remember how only a few in-the-know tech sites were reporting on the possibility of a black hole, and then suddenly overnight everyone was freaking out about it? Same deal.
>believing SERN's lies
I come from the future my name is Nobless. Anime in the 21st century will be shit and games will become worse and worse.People who never save a previous good game will see the current game as good and thus a cycle of people accepting good games begins.RMS was right.Intel will put microphones in your cpu to spy on with NSA a type of domestic cia
Can you guys believe Sun has released a $1000 workstation? I got one on order!
>4500 + 5000 for the monitor
>yfw it's not impossible that there is a Craigslist listing for this machine going for 1200 claiming "new it costed me like 10,000 so 1200 is a pretty good deal"
Greetings fellow netizens! I've been printing my own greeting cards at home and I'm looking for some good clipart to spice them up. Can any of you suggest a good CD-ROM? My local computer store is a CompUSA if that helps.
>>52469843>yfw uses yfw but doesn't post what yfw looks like
what a cuck
Wow... airport security sure is speedy these days... I'm surprised we haven't had a hijacking incident yet...
I visit a pokemon website,before that I fell asleep on my couch in the family computer room waiting for my internet to stop phoning home and praying to gateway that no one would call my house.
Three more months.. April 26th.. No one will ever forget this..
Voodoo 3 will have 32 bit color AND high performance, unlike that trashy TNT card put out by Nvidia.
Nvidia can make all of the Detonator drivers they want but they can never match Glide.
BTW they call it TNT because it runs so hot it'll blow up your motherboard
>ubiquitous in the 1990s
Perhaps in the US? Here in Eastern Europe you'd rarely see ZIP drives outside of academia. The consumer market went straight from 3.5" floppies to CD-RWs (the earlier CD-R-only drives weren't very popular) around the year 2000 or so. Between the two there a sort of awkward period of time where you'd carry around your old hard drive if you wanted to transfer more than a megabyte or so.
To Microsoft users expecting Y2K to break their operating systems:
Why not switch to a non-corporatist, non-fascist operating system like Linux?
It's fast and we almost have a functioning windowing system.
Because it's made to work like UNIX (like Sun), the millennium will not break your clock.
It's fairly easy to use and free to get.
If you have a spare floppy and you want to try it out, send it my way and I'll (legally) put Linux on it.
That looks SLEEK. I hope Windows ME has a skin like that.
There's no way it's going to look that cool. Do we have confirmed leaks yet?
Pretty cool, but can it run Windows? I'm a hobbyist.
>there are people ITT who dont attend LAN parties
>there are people ITT who dont listen to trance music while hacking/coding/ being 1337 in general
>there are people ITT who actually and unironically used Intel CPUs
99.... Hot Summer night
1,5l cold coke bottle
Ps1 playing Tony hawk's
my autism goes viral when im thinking back in that wonderful time
Also terrorism? u wot?
Anyone still call BBSes? i haven't called one in a while since the internet got less shitty lol but i sure hope they don't die out, i doubt they will
Although this internet shit is way more rad with FTPs like ftp.cdrom.com holy shit the doom files on there >>>
Anyone's rig able to run UT ok?
>but can it run Windows?
With enough money, anything is possible!
>Remember that whole deal with the large hadron collier in 2008 or so?
>mfw he actually believes soft drive is a computer term
(well fug frame contents didn't get captured for some reason)
We never did zip, i think i only knew three people that had them - Two of which owned businesses so it made more sense
I think we probably would have gotten it if our school district had PCs that supported them
We skipped it and went straight to Flash Drives ~2001-2002 with a whopping 128MB Storage
128MB Ram is like Soo much ram
>mfw I remember my friends who I played with and now they either stopped playing or are dead
Just got this in the mail. Imagine what we'll be able to do with our PDA's in the future... maybe talk to it like in my sci fi cartoons?
>40x read speed!*
>* only at the very outer edge of the disc
keep in mind the "40x" refers to 40 times the data rate of cd audio, and not related to the actual rotational speed (rpm), cd's use clv, so at the same rotational speed, the data rate is lowest in the center, and greatest at the outer edge
No we don't, in 2030s everyone and every machine will run Windows 10 due to Global Corporate Congress regulations. Users and machines incapable of running Windows 10 have been exterminated as enemies of GCC.
