Oldies but Goodies...

IF of interest to anyone, here's a list of the hardware currently being used in the collective...

IE: What makes up THAT mess >>>>, well, that's PART of it ;^)

As you can see, pretty much all of the Computing Hardware is "out-dated" by any "normal" standards, 486 or Pentium (original, from before they were numbered! ;^) CPUs, the fastest being the Pentium 233 MMX CPUs, from 24 to 256 MB Memory, from 200 MB, to 28 GB of disk space. There are only three boxes (the 233 MMX systems) which have even a chance of running, Windows 2000, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME.

BUT, using Linux, they're fine! Good thing I prefer Linux over that Gatesian Crap, innit???



Click on the left star for home , and the right star for end.

Obviously, there ain't too much here yet, but I'll update it as more gear comes in, so....

"watch this space"!

Neale....

NB: WHEN I get back into my house, I'll ge able to a) spread out a bit, and b) connect everything bit better, check out the emerging Computer room.
