    That's actually pretty sick. I had an 8088 with a 10 meg drive and I would dial into BBS boards before the net was even around. I feel old. I'm only 38!!!!

    Yea. I was still in HS fucking around with that shit. I had a 286 that I over locked by soldering new crystals on the motherboard. I was bonding 2 phone lines with 2 modems by the time dail up tcpip became popular. I'm a fucking dork.

    Circa 1999, AMD Thunderbird CPU, built by a friend. I upgraded it and rebuilt it until I became a Mac Daddy a few years later...

    First was an 80286 , 8 mhz if I remember correctly. Ran Windows 3.1. I upgraded from a 10 meg hard drive to a 20. There was no interwebs yet, but a friend had some floppys with low grade porn stills

    I've worked on processors that use fucking relays. No shit. Big sheets of metal that Were magnetically "burned" with program info. Some of the coolest shit I've ever seen in my life.
