@crazycells this perhaps? 🙂
@downpw wow. I definitely remember the Atari ST. One of my favourite games was R-type
me i twas :
R-type was a very good shoot 'em up
@downpw yeah, loved R-Type but Golden Axe brings back so many memories !
My first system was hp 4000 , then followed by hp folio 9470m, i have used hp for a very longtime. Its the best ever machine i learned windows with it, 25 yrs in same background.
@Sala An era I recall well. I used the predecessor, before HP acquired Compaq - and this was back in 1997
Pentium I 166mhz MX
@phenomlab lol dont make me laugh, pentium
The cd drive was in high demand 🤭… php was not so popular. XML was the main thing! Pentium has been a walkthrough for all of us.
@phenomlab do you still have it? The picture looks fresh. It could sale big maybe in 2050’s
@Sala heh, MMX technology was bleeding edge at that time! And yes, the CD-ROM was king until the DVD came along and stole it’s crown. I distinctly remember running Windows 95 on these machines, then (with a memory upgrade) Windows NT4 Workstation with service pack 3.
They also made a small form factor model with no floppy disk (yeah, I’m that old) and the only 2 ways to get an operating system on it were network boot or cloning a hard disk in another system then installing that into the one without the floppy.
We avoided those like the plague.
@phenomlab there’s one guy who i knew back then, he was able to collect all torn pieces of floppy black disc and put them together and make it read.
@Sala impressive. That’s actually a lot harder than it looks. I once worked for a trading firm in the 90s and a trader came to me with a corrupted floppy disk demanding I get it to work.
Evidently, it had all of his trading positions on it and he had no backup and he wasn’t impressed when I told him that the chances of data recovery were less than zero.
