I vaguely recall hearing this before.  Seems it may have been in relation to a conversation about how long six inches really was...

Six inches is a shade over fifteen centimeters.  Where's the confusion?

 With all the Trolls, Try Hards, Noobs and Weirdos around here you'd think i'd find SOMEWHERE to fit in!

It's called a floppy disk and a hard drive for a reason.

Looks like you have some other stuff too. Anything that's even a little bit old (older than Sandy Bridge) belongs here. Feel free to post more!

Wireless data terminal. People born after 2005 May not have seen it. Plug in a SIM card and use 3g networks to connect computers to the Internet. China popularized 4g signals in 2008 and is now popularizing 5g signals. So very few people use it. Now the device is used almost exclusively in remote areas such as no man's land.???

Nice! I don't think that's widely used in the US, actually. Imagine how awesome it would be if you could use your laptop anywhere without having to hook it up to a cellular hotspot.

Nice! Just curious, do you have any old computers that you'd like to post pics of? We love seeing the insides of those.

 

Edit: I learned today that laptops need a dedicated 4G card to read SIM cards.

The printer server cost about $45, but I thought it was expensive?, so I threw together a set of computers specifically for LAN printers.

Computer case: $8.

Motherboard Foxconn n15235: $7.

CPU: Intel e2140 $1.20.

Memory chip Kingston ddr3 1333 4g $7.

Fan and power: $13

Use Microsoft RD Client LAN remote desktop ???

Wow, that's a REAL budget build! That's some quality content. Not the oldest, but definitely something we like to see.

Among Chinese computer enthusiasts, there is a saying: no matter how powerful the computer, it will only be used to play minesweeper?. So I only configured the right computer for use. My major is embedded development. In the future, I will access a simple smart home on this computer, which will cost much less than some commercial businesses?.

That is the best quote I've heard in a long time. I like it!

 

A lot of people don't actually require the computing power they desire. For example, Minecraft can run at 1080p even on a 2006-ish rig.

10 years ago I had a neat little Fujitsu P1620 convertible laptop and it had space for a mini-pci WWAN card inside, but if you hadn't ordered it with WWAN from the factory not only the card wasn't present, but the connector wasn't populated. Had bought it second hand without it, so I bought a USB one that had suitable dimensions and hacked it in.

"Yum" those old awful passive matrix LCDs... got one too, snagged a P133 Extensa 650CD from the same time for 30 bucks with all accessories. Basically in "just came out of the box" condition... with both the CD and floppy drive. Thing was like $4.5K back in the day and it seems it really barely was ever used.

 

Didn't boot, but a total disassembly and CMOS battery replacement later it fired right up, exactly as it was when it was last powered 18 years earlier...

Floppy drive needed a belt replaced but works now too. Been keeping the original drive intact and playing with reinstalling stuff on a CF card. Came with W95, and I still haven't been able to get the PCMCIA slots to work on anything more recent unfortunately, even 95OSR2. Rest all works fine on 98.
