>he totally 3D printed it guise! It's a ruse!
I'm glad it kinda works and all that, though it isn't like the guy himself did anything great. He was just reminded by people on the internet that his dad saved something that he happened to obtain. It isn't like he built the system or even repaired it.
Also the guy was afraid the system would explode if he turned the power on even though it's not hard to determine what kind of power adapter to use, even if you have to open it up. I get why he wouldn't want to risk damaging it but the guy was kind of a tard about it.
Interesting how it says no CD rom system found. I'd like to see them open it up to see if there's even a drive in there since it wouldn't eject but I get the feeling that's never going to happen since the dude was so afraid of turning it on
no one ever said he did anything great... a lot of people did go overboard accusing him of all sorts of ridiculous things however. and now that it's been shown that he was being honest all along doesn't mean anyone is claiming him to be a hero... we're just pointing out that most people were being jealous assholes for no reason at all.
except they totally did and you haven't even bothered looking into it.
The drive is in there but not working because at some point after it was made but before the current owners got a hold of it, it was tampered with. A load of extra leads are attached between chips.
