I just refurbished one almost identical to those specs and loaded that version of windows. I have a Win98 SE machine and a Windows XP Machine with a 21" Sony Trinitron monitor
and still another with Windows 2000


All in storage...

Yeah I'm a geek that way

You know, when my children were little and they said they were bored. I always had something for them to do around the house that needed doing.

They quickly learned never to say "I'm bored" around me...

I used to have one of those! The nose came off and made like a little egg shaped ship.

Man, I'd forgotten about that....

And now I'm thinking about GI Joe... not the stupid little 2.5 inch ones... I'm talking the big ones with the face scar and the fuzzy hair/beards.

My most prominent GI Joe memory is that one year my Dad gave me the "bionic" GI Joe - I think he was called Mike Powers or some such and a "hang glider" ( basically a kite that you'd strap GI on ) for my birthday.

Later in the day, with me acting like a hyperactive kid - wanting to play with my new toy - he finally took me to the park. he popped a beer can and set my bionic GI Joe up in the glider... a wind picked up and I had a blast!

For about ten seconds. Kite went up, up, up - and into a tree. Dad looked, picked up his beer, and said "Welp, that's that."

And it was.

Funny you say that. I threw my Spock doll,into the gutter. Why, I don't know. 15 years later, I helped my dad replace the gutters, and there he was. He looked like crap, but he still had his phazer in his hand !!!!



I wish I had ALL my old toys, in mint condition. I did save a few of them, and handed them down to my son, who still plays with them. Legos, a Batman car, a few Star Wars figures......

I also have the old TI-99 computer, with the games, but I haven't brought that out, since I was 14.........

My first Computer was a Sinclair ZX81 - 1 whole K of RAM, yes thats a kilobyte - one thousandth of a Meg and one millionth of a Gig. When I saved up my paper round money and bought a 16k expansion pack I thought I'd never write a program big enough to fill it. Google it - it looks horribly ancient now but this was 1980, when digital watches were the height of technology and Space Invaders was still around the corner.
