    Default Wow

    That is quite a collection, very impressive. I remember quite a few of those from back in the day.

    I'd be interested to know what hard drives you have and cards. I am looking for a VGA card for my 5160, and maybe a bigger (than 10mb) hard drive.

    IBM 5160 - 360k, 1.44Mb Floppies, NEC V20, 8087-3, 45MB MFM Hard Drive, Vega 7 Graphics, IBM 5154 Monitor running MS-DOS 5.00
    IBM PCJr Model 48360 640kb RAM, NEC V20,, jrIDE Side Cart, 360kb Floppy drives running MS-DOS 5.00
    Evergreen Am5x86-133 64Mb Ram, 8gb HDD, SB16 in a modified ATX case running IBM PC-DOS 7.10

    How did you know I ddn't have a working doorbell ?
    After 7 years since I moved in here I've finally repaired it. I was entranced wth the echo chambers it has inside to give a mellow sound. The Ding-Dong is quite pleasing once they discover the main entry isn't the front door.

    When people come see him
    to discover this museum
    they soon discover gaming
    is just a playtime laming
    and computing is the focus of it all.

    Rhymed couplets don't define poetry and historically
    are recent developments, especially favored by the english.

    So there T.

    I don't think I'll ask you what MIB means, but I guess I just did. I shudder contemplating what the answer will be.

    You should've gone to N'awleans. I can see it now. Ol T. going thru the streets of a sanitised city of fancy hotels and extravagant condominiums of a new N'awleans, ethnically cleansed by the mighty Missisippi and built on the bones of the old. But all the forces of voodoo, juju, and Santeria remain to exact their vengeance. How many of the wealthy from New York, California, and Chicago who flock there know how to appease the angry gods of the people ?

    Terry does ! But it will be costly. And some may have to give up ther first-born daughters, and a few sons.
    But after a time, with dilligence and the intervention of T., the gods might be appeased, but with a brooding anger at what had been lost. Terry grows fat on beer and the wonderful cuisine of this once glorious city and eventually melts away.

    Funny you should mention it L, I just adopted a new Family God yesterday. She's formally named 'Our Lady Of The Golden Prosthesis', but informally known as 'Mary With A Hook'. She's the patron of Industrial Accidents, especially venerated by the exploited masses of the third world, but also by wage slaves everywhere. I can't show her right now, my camera software needs to be reinstalled. (Who knew it would quit working just because I deleted it?)

    Hello there I am interested in your IBM 5160 with the quad ram memory card if it is at a reasonable price. Would you be willing to post additional information such as the video card type (CGA or Mono) etc.? I live in WI,USA.
