    Yeah, right...a likely story. :eek:


    PS If I post a pic of my circa 2000 monitor--that weighs 70+ pounds--do I win some sort of prize? :laugh:

    Only if you're holding it over your head in the picture. :p

    Yeah, right! It'll be a miracle if I can even maneuver my way over to it in the garage to take pics. :laugh:

    It's been sitting in its spot for eight years now...and I have no idea when/how I'm going to get rid of it. :thinking:

    Place it on the curb...

    It's not that simple--for a number of reasons. First, the obvious, that someone will drive by, see it, and take it. No. Probably not. Older stuff like that tends to not attract any takers in my neighborhood. Plus, getting it to the curb would be a big ordeal, for me anyway! I could ask my gardener to do it, but then if no one takes it I'll be stuck on trash pickup day. That's because we have to dispose of old electronics 'properly'--which means the trash/recycling folks wouldn't take it. Then it'd be sitting there on the curb...and I'd have to figure out what to do next. :hmmmm2: (We can either take stuff like that to the designated pickup place, or--since I have backyard pickup [because I'm disabled]--I can request X number of special pickups per year. I THINK I'm already over my limit...by several times...but they've been nice about it and let it slide. :D)

    Okay, I expect some gold stars or something for risking life and limb to go to my garage for this picture. (Yeah, okay, so I didn't actually go INSIDE. I wasn't that daring.) Here's that 70+ pound monster of a monitor, in all its 19" glory:

    Built mine about a year and a half ago and only just got round to re-wiring it to tidy up the wires,

    I just plugged them all in when I first built it and got left with a right tangle.:eek:

    Um, I have an Atari Mega4 with a third party internal hard drive, Motorola 68000 cpu. Had 4 megs of internal memory at a time when the standard pc came with 640K (yes, Kilobytes!). Circa 1990/91. Um, but haven't tried turning it on for about 10-15 yrs!! :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:
    Developed a glitchy monitor connection.:D
    Suppose technically it isn't my CURRENT computer. But I do currently still own it. Hee hee.:p:p

    I might also have an Amstrad 128 in a cupboard somewhere. The 128 was for 128K of memory. Circa Commodore 64 era - about 1985 or so. It ran 3" floppies. Yes, 3", not 3.5" floppies. Haven't turned it on for some time, either.:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
    Oh, my current computer?:D:D
    About 3 yrs old, Intel I7, 8Gbs of ram, 1 Tb hard drive, Nvidia GE GTX 560 1Tb, Colosuss High Definition Video Capture Card, Windows 7 64bit . Does the job.

    Oh, and a 3 month old Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 tablet (Wifi only version) about to get an injection of a 64 Gb SD card. (And is occassionally connected to External 1Tb USB hard drives.)

    It's cool! Really Cool. Fabulous 2560 by 1600 screen. :):):)

    Apologies for all the Smilies, just couldn't resist! :D

    Welcome aboard, MadAudio! :)

    We'd love to see pics of your currently owned computer equipment. But do note that people here are stingy with gold stars. *sigh* Some stupid technicality about current computers. :rolleyes:

    :laugh: :rofl: :laugh:

    I resemble that remark.

    My PC, by the way, is just about ten years old, was cutting-edge-ish when I inherited it, has extra RAM and USB ports, still runs great b u t v e r y s l o w.

    The computer on my lap (MBP), a little over 2 years. The computer in the other room (Mac Mini with a 4-bay drive enclosure) about 2 weeks, and I've already taken it apart once.

    My gaming desktop is on Craigslist for sale right now. I couldn't see using 150+ watts of power for what amounted to a file server when the Mini does the same and only draws 50 watts.
