I went and checked after reading that. Crap I feel older now.

On an unrelated note, I want my generations Joan Baez to spring forth. Goddang we need another person with that sort of voice and talent.

I'm guessing this is a 486 maybe? This stuff is older than my tech knowledge.

What are the Intel part numbers on those two big bridge chips next to the CPU?

You've got a Socket 7 motherboard with a 1st-gen P5 Pentium processor under that miniscule HSF. It'd make an OK DOS box for old games, but that's about all it'll do (fully expecting the -ix and BSD crazies here to disagree).

That system's not using the Turbo button. It's of the first-generation Pentium P5 vintage.

The short answer is "No. You've gotten all of the value out of this PC. It's time for a new one."

Last night was pretty surreal. I had dinner with some friends to celebrate my birthday, and afterwards a few of us decided to go out and continue the festivities. Well....long story short, we wound up at a strip club and one of the dancers was a girl I knew in jr. high. :D

Having a baby girl totally changed my view of these establishments. And after a little bit of thought, of the people I know who I know go to them, none of them have daughters. There are probably exceptions, I'm sure.

I'm still considering being a stripper. I like poles.

Maybe, but judging by the label, it's a generic case. My parents had something similar for our K6-233.

I've never been to one. Perhaps the fact that I got married and had a daughter shortly after turning 21 has something to do with it...

Was just talking to one of the other organizers of the homebrew competition yesterday, and he has much the same sentiment. He was supposed to go to a bachelor party at a strip club, but was quite happy to have the excuse of "I can't come, I have to help run this huge homebrew competition".

Speaking of which, the competition went great. Some minor glitches due to bugs in the new competition management system we were using, but nothing that affected the judging of the entries. Neither of my own entries took a medal, but one of them scored well enough that I think I will re-enter it in another competition being held by another local club in a couple of weeks.

I've been to Montreal many times, mainly because it's close. I've not been since my daughter came into my life, at least for "that" purpose. Montreal is a great family weekend getaway spot.

The MSI K7Pro that was running my home file server until just a couple of years ago had an ISA slot!

Our Federal gov't at work (don't worry, not R&P):

One of the Federal agencies I must work with in the day job provides us laptops to ensure that we do our work to their standards with their tools. I just unwrapped my shiny new Lenovo T520 with a quad-core i5-2520M, 8GB of RAM, and Windows 7 Enterprise...






32-bit version.

Doh!!!!!!
