|Yes I do have one, sadly I speak french, so unless you can understand it...|
|I have a long-lasting temptation to learn - some French books and movies impress me seriously to think about it, but... that's not enough: there will be no progress without an actual study (obviously). Laziness and other duties win at this point. |
/laziness is an unbeatable thing, lol (and I need to build a shelving to store CRTs there, but... that old enemy is here: I bought shelves, still need to buy the rest of the construction and assemble it; a half-year has passed) A sudden sad post, makes me laugh.

|Oh I know, but for me it's not lazyness but this is not the right place to talk about that, but yess, I have some things that I wanted to do years ago and still haven't done.|

|Hi All, |
I'm Unobsolete from New Zealand. I'm into vintage computer systems and audio equipment. I have a few systems that i'm in the process of getting working and will be posting my progress on here as soon as i get the projects off the ground. I have been watching Hightreason's youtube videos for years now as well as Waybacktech.
My first pc system was a
Intel 486DX 4 100Mhz
8MB of 32 Pin Ram
800MB Connor IDE Drive
1MB VLB Cirrus Logic Video Card
Sound Blaster 16 ISA Sound Card
VLB Dual IDE Interface Card
Windows 3.1 & DOS 6.22
14 Inch CRT Monitor
That system got me through high school and was used quite a bit during the weekends to play duke nukem 3d, doom and rise of the triad. 2001-2004. It was second hand then.
I'm in the process of building another system like it but am still in need of a few parts and a case before it will be working again but i will post with i finally get it working.

|Figured it would be good manners to say welcome to the boards, even though I'm sure we already spoke on Discord. Obviously I wish you the best of luck with this system, always had a soft spot for the 486.|
|Evening everyone.. The names Howard.. I've gone by the alias of H something or other (with a prefix or suffix of some kind) on numerous other forums and places around dhat there interwebnetz thing.. I've been getting involved in number live streams on PornTu.. Urgh Fuu.. I Mean.. YouTube! YOU TUBE! (not that there's much a difference now.. IS there? *cue a long pause for thought* as of late.. Just out of sheer fucking boardem of being out a decent paying job and stuck living the dole.. YAY! (NOT..) |
I've had a long standing.. (if somewhat.. unhealthy.. Though it's not as bad as it used to be.. Honest 'Guv *cough*) obsession with these number crunching box thingamys people like to use.. It all started in my mid childhood when dearest mumsy brought me a very used n abused ZX Spectrum 2 128K+ (mien gott.. what a stinking pile of shit that thing was) to her later disdain.. of course..
After a few years of watching HT's channel and seeing he'd set up his forum about what? Nearly three years ago now? I've been meaning to join just for a looksee.. And now finally gotten a fucking around to it.. I suppose.. I also have a number of systems.. Though my little “collection” (if you could call it that) is mostly x86 PeeCee based hardware.. in varying degrees of complete and semi-functional unfinished systems.. I've let a number of projects slide.. Due to having a lack of time/money/inclination left to finish them.. So I really do kinda need to get my fugg'n shit together..

|Howdy, Howard. |
I'd like to say something nice about the ZX Spectrum but have yet to find one that actually works, it seems either the keyboard membrane fails or the RF box doesn't want to play ball... umm... I have a working soviet version, but no reliable way to interface it with a TV as yet. Although the ZX Spectrum version of some music is coming in handy for learning a song right now as the tones are much closer to actual notes than the C64 version I'm used to hearing.
The boards here aren't super active a lot of the time, but interesting things do show up occasionally.
|Well.. If your thinking about getting one.. I'd recommend a genuine Sinclair ZX.. (such as, the last 64 and 128k "Toast rack" originals) And not one of Mr Sugars cheap arse Sinclair branded shit boxes.. |
Those fucking tape load errors where the bane of my existence.. Plus trying to find tapes for the fucking thing as a child.. (around the time when every other kid's who's parents could afford it, had ROM cartridge based NESs SNESs and Mega Drives) was borderline impossible.. The shit box 286 Olivetti my father got me after that.. Where everything loaded of one disk.. ONE DISK! felt like a world apart..
I'm not really a fan of General Instruments AY series of PSGs.. They never seemed to get the best out of them in micro computers.. Unlike when they where used on arcade boards.. It pains me to say it.. But Commodores SID series whacks the living snot out of everything else.. With some chip that was made by Philips, coming in a close second.. It was some kinda stereo PSG that was used in the Sam Coupe.. (Now good look finding one of them for "reasonable" money nowadays.. Heh eh) and some other micro puters n arcade boards.
I don't expect this place to be anything like the private forum I used to hang around on was.. It used to originally be for a game clan I was in, but at it's peek.. when it's the guy who owned it allowed friends of ours to join.. It swelled up into monster he and his wife and daughter could just about mange.. Though it started to slowly die off around 2009-10.. There was hardly anyone active anymore when he pulled the plug on the sever in early 2014.. It was a say day.. But as they say.. All good things must come to an end.
