  1. What defines "vintage", and why running DOS on a netbook is fun!

    I've always wondered what "vintage" really is. I've done tons of research
    and finally found an answer! It turns out that it's not a real time frame,
    but most people consider it to be from around the 1950s to the 1990s,

  5. Possibly Rare Devices I Own

    This will be updated as I remember stuff.
    I have an IBM Model "A" keyboard. I can't find anything on it. Please comment if you know about it.
    I have a Sega Dreamcast NTSC manufactured in August of 1999. Although not super rare. It's interesting. It was made before 9/9/99, the US release date.
    I have a strange vintage analog multimeter. I'll do a post on it in a bit. It seems to have been made from a kit or from complete scratch. It has a circa 1971 Eveready AA battery ...
