I enjoy reading the tech news section until about page 3-4 when it becomes an argument over which company is best.

Ones an old ECS board I can't remember the name of that had a slot for a different type of processor and ram. This was that weird transition period where things like agp and pcie were on boards that took ddr1 and ddr2

ill find the name later

 

the other is a PICMG backplane unit

Agreed.

 

IBM systems are probably worth a pretty penny though, IBM hasn't manufactured anything for quite a while.

Please tell me that this is legitimately a real thing that exists and is purchaseable.


I can crash a computer in 30 seconds by running a .bat file with the contents %0|%0.

I can crash a computer in 1 second by yeeting it.

I also now have about 7 GB of viruses on an autorun flash drive.

Interesting, my old Presario has a slightly better version but in gold (though the 233 also had gold versions too).

I'm still messing around with socket 478 stuff and at this point I'm certain that all my processors are dead. Two new old stock motherboards won't post, and my ECS photon will somewhat post with the 2.8ghz one 

it'll hit a bios splash screen but no more

the only known working 478 system I have is a laptop and it's gonna be a nightmare to take that apart for testing 

 

It's also picky with ram, gotta cmos clear a special way to get it to post at all

That's been a thing for a long time. Not exactly special.

I've got a Celeron 2.4 Northwood you can have for cost of shipping if you're interested? Hell you can have the whole Dell board it came in!

Both of those'd work on my baby AT board. Regardless of BIOS version. Socket 5, 7 and S7 - even laptop variants....it doesn't care as long as its electrically compatible with one of the 3.
