Default Oh. My. Gosh.

I found my old laptop. 8 inch screen. 486sx/50. 8 meg ram. 200 meg drive. Bought brand new for around $3,400 or so.

It has the pascal source code for all my BBS door games I wrote, all my 86asm programs...and my first released program ever....NES to Famicom ROM converter that I released for the emu scene (back before NESticle existed so we had to use Pasofami).

Also found my old modems. Hayes Accura 28.8 and Bocamodem 28.8...can't find my 14.4 or my 56k.

This is just amazing to me. Files are dated 1993. NINETEEN NINETY THREE.

Your files are older than Michael Jackson's lovers.

You better make that thing Y2K compliant, or the minute you turn it on, it will launch a tactical nuclear strike from Antarctica.

I have it....Zoom 14.4....lets hear it for 25-pin serial ports...w00t.

Interestingly enough, its sitting in the same drawer as the Cardinal 9600 that's bigger than a toaster oven.

As far as files go...I'd have to go back to the Pentium 90 with the 1.2Gb HD....that has the origional .s3m, .xm, and .it files on it from 1995....too bad that'd never hold up in court <img src=smilies/headshake.gif>

You gave me the 14.4 you had b/c you had just gotten your US Robotics 33.6 and so I'd be able to hit up duke3d in windows in deathmatch.....man, fuckin good times. <img src=smilies/thumb.gif>
