What's the oldest part you own?
actually i have 2 commodore 64s but they are really my parents. I purge my tech closet every year or so. I won't be needing to do that now though that i don't use PCs anymore. Apple stuff is much easier to sell for a decent amount when you're finished with it
This fucker has a pentium 4 and god knows what GPU
And sitting right next to it is a tower with a c2q and an 8600gt
a pair of pretty early z80-mcbs with two binders full of documentation and "confidential" preliminary schematics
plus a bunch of other shit, my current pet project is a mac quadra 700 that left the factory around '92 or early '93 going by the date codes
a compaq contura 4/33C
still works, some business I worked was going to throw it out almost 3 years ago. screen is quite faded but visible inside and the hard disk still works, it has 3.1 and chip's challenge on it
thinking of making a video destroying it to piss off luddites
c64s are common as fuck, literally babby's first 8-bit, nothing really special to see even in this shithole tbqh
I've got a stack of regular 4/25s, don't really know how I keep finding them
>thinking of making a video destroying it to piss off luddites
that would be a shame more than anything, the 4/33c was the most expensive and probably the rarest of them all, the contura itself is historically notable as one of the earliest PC subnotebooks and a real trendsetter, not to mention that god awful trackpoint
just wreck a pmmx-era shitpad 300 if you're feeling edgy, it will get thinkshit autists into the fray as well and you won't be damaging something of any real rarity or historical significance
Among my Socket 370,478 and 754 motherboards,this is one of the GPUs I found.
Still works. It's a Gecube Radeon 9550 256MB AGP8X.
I have a loose E2180 cpu laying around. It's basically worthless.
Of that same LGA775 architecture, you can buy an E8400 or Q6600 for like $10 nowadays and those chips vastly outperform the E2180.
Just an old Toshiba satellite 2800-100 laptop
>not my pic no light atm.
Intel Celeron 650 MHz
192 mb of ram
GPU AGP 2x - S3 Savage/IX - 8 MB SGRAM
And floppy expansion card and DVD reader
Shit was pretty high end back then.
If only I could find my charger id use it as an old DOS machine or even as a network terminal.
It still works.
I'll be sure to repeat this before the video starts along with a great scene where I just have it open in the bathroom as I'm not in frame screaming "KIDS KIDS KIDS TODAY PHONES PHONES KIDS KIDS et cetera. relationships"
In my current rig?
Um. an old USB 2.0 PCI card. 5 ports (4 out 1 inside case)
oldest part I own? Maybe my ATI RAGE PRO 128!
maybe, I don't even know what I have in one of my old parts boxes now.
just a pile of core 2's and xeons
2x xeon e5420
not seen is the 2x q6600 sitting on my parts shelf.
must be this magnificent graphic card
also have a Pentium 233MMX
I can't bear to put it in the trash, where it belongs.
A sega genesis but I don't know where it is currently, so a bentium 4.
Two HDDs, one is WD 500gb 5400rpm that is probably close to 10 years now, seen a lot of torrents, really raises questions how it's still running, but doesn't seem like it will die any time soon either
Another one is also WD, 256 gb and 7200rpm, I took it out from some proprietary workmachine but it was old as fuck, so I can only guess it's about 10 year old too, only powered on for 150 days, according to Speccy™, but going up in flames at 58C, so I guess all muh gaymes will die pretty soon
plays doom like a champ
oh you're that guy
you sound like you should get some fresh air some time, relax a little, you always get so worked up in these threads for some reason like they're personally attacking you for enjoying something old
A few missing but I will scavenge them from storage at some point...
Oldest part I own or oldest part still in use ?
The oldest thing I own is a Dell Latitude CPi and the parts that go with it, still fully functional.
Oldest part still in use is pic related.
a friend of mine is using uv-erasable flashrom chips to build a custom ttl-logic cpu
he has a pdp-11/23 also, thing is old as shit and has so little harddrive space that he had to strip so much from an early bsd release to be able to compile it on the machine
Oldest working computer is pic related, a GRiDCase 1520, came out in 1986.
These laptops were used by the military and on the space shuttle (I actually have a copy of the flight software around here somewhere)
The model previous to this one was the sentry gun terminal computer in Aliens
The mode l previous to that one was the GRiD Compass, which was the first laptop ever
I also have a couple 74181 ALUs sitting around in my parts bench that are probably pulls from 70's minicomputers
Sounds wicked cool. I'll give you another pic that has something even older than that
Doom II Ver 1.7, Pentium 3 850mhz, powermac g5, and a bigfoot HDD somewhere
I've got some older shit myself, but that wafer is still pretty sweet.
I've wanted a GRiD forever, fascinating and pretty innovative systems. They also just look pretty cool.
If it makes you feel any better, this one is actually fine since it is just about old tech, and not trying to use it to appear better than someone else. I... enjoyed it.
I will be closely monitoring the thread however and am standing by to shitpost at the first mention of the word "kid".
