    What ancient tech have YOU found today?

    These were found in a recent clear out by a teacher who's been at the school where I work for nigh on 40 years. Wonder what our RM CC3 network would make of them

    Me too

    Was expecting either Carter or Mckay in here pointing and ranting about ZEEE PEEE EM'S and what not and whittering on about subspace compression

    As for ancient PC stuff - I have a 486 heatsink ( the passive ones that are ALWAYS green as a post-it note holder )

    Hehe, I was going to say that!

    I think the oldest thing I have lying around here, is an old 186... Not only that, but all the literature for it too! Ahh, the 'olden days'!

    I found one of my old Nintendo Game & Watch games today.

    Apparently the rarer models can fetch up to 200 quid in auction!

    Mine's only worth about 50 tho. And it's taken quite a battering over the years
    AthlonXP 2500+ @ 2.1Ghz
    1024Mb Corsair DDR RAM @ 390FSB
    ATi Radeon 9800SE with NP Softmod
    MSI K7N2 Delta nForce2 Mobo.
    Old - But still going strong
