    Can I take the first shot from the firing squad?

    Seriously though? There is a healthy limit to "lol"

    I would reccomend - you, a friend with a camera, and a sledgehammer. Always a good way to give a poor old useless 486 the send off it deserves.

    i would recommend staying clear of those 'upgrade baords' I have never seen one work properly, and the amount we used to get back in the returns dpt where i used to work was crazy compared to how many sold. you'd be better off getting a cheap motherboard/cpu/memory combo deal for your case, either from ebay (dirt cheap) or from a store that does the 'bundles' will probably work out cheaper than the upgrade board for a 486 anyway !

    what you can use a 486 for? hmmm, well other than using it as a physical object (table leg, stool, door wedge etc) smoothwall (very useful) or maybe a netware server are about all i can think of.
