    Actually, you won't get any interest at the bank. They will charge you instead. And, since everyone is reliant upon the banks for your electronic transactions, it will be better off to keep your cash...

    Don't forget that only 9000 people have been tested in the US, because of the expense. This is one of the smallest samples in the world. There could be many thousands of poor-to-middle-class people...

    Not sure why you say TP instead of toilet paper. There's been a run on the stuff for the last month. Fortunately I found some in an out-of-the-way shop in a country town.

    I was given a hard drive from an old NAS. I plugged it into a computer to see if it was any good, and a black blob near the power socket went up in smoke. I guess the hard drive had slightly...

    I used to have one of those machines in the 90's, until I accidently blew it up. In those days nobody cared about old computers, so it got thrown in the bin.

    Sometimes the CMOS version works differently to the other version. You shouldn't just change chip types just because you felt like it - the originals were selected for a reason.

    While it could be bitrot in the ROMs, i'd think that the RAM would be a more likely candidate. My only encounter with one of these computer was down to bad RAM - it was all getting very hot.

    I used to have 3 Dick Smith Super-80's, but they've since found new homes.

    My first PC was a Epson EL2: 80286, 2MB ram, VGA, 20MB HD. It came with Windows 3.1, which worked well enough. I upgraded the ram to 4MB (all it can hold), and the HD to 40 MB.

    Of course, that PC...

    Thought I'd see what happened on my XP computers - but in every case, the bios doesn't even have 5 1/4" drives as a choice. So much for that. :(

    Tezza's looks like it's 64 columns, but yours is 32 columns and repeating. I'd suggest to have a look around the chips in the video section.
