Retro computer stuff
OP, are you still here?
OP, you're a nerd.
clamshell iBook is now retro
Feeling pretty old now.
old here too user
well it is a vital mineral
Do you have any computer porn from the 70's?
I thought that was what I was mostly posting.
It's more vintage due to it's abnormal design and impact on the Apple brand than it's age. Hence why you don't see any other circa-1999 laptops in the thread.
lol I'm on XP right now
That second image. What is that exactly?
sorry user no idea
maybe another user can help
It's a processor, the "caveman" equivalent of the Microprocessor in the very early 80's. The main compounds used in the processors are Au5Al2 (white plague) and AuAl2 (purple plague), which both form at high temperatures. It's named Purple Plague because of the manufacturing process.
wow cool, wizard user
How was this used in the processor?
In Digital's DEC servers. What you are looking at is a prototype of a DEC Alpha cpu years before it was a Alpha CPU. They were incredibly ugly once upon a time and if you ordered one, it would come like that and you'd have to solder it in there yourself. Digital used to be like Intel is today, they made the bits and pieces for other people's productions.
I think that CPU (transistor really), judging by the picture, is being used for one of the hundreds of mainframe makers in the 80's.
Get that elitist shit out of here.
Newfags get OUT.
Fuck your kids toys.
many keks were had
This is now an astronomy thread.
not so fast grasshopper nebula
The name of this one is the poetic and romantic NGC5189. If you find one, you get to name it btw, can you tell this one was named by a committee?
I counter with my ant nebula.
OP is back with ancient computer porn.
YOU SHALL NOT PASS
The ZX81, I saved for five months to buy one doing anything a kid was allowed to do then and it took me a couple of days to solder it together. (I was 8 at the time)
cool story bro
I was hoping to get some feedback just like this.
No problem….oh nebula hs-2010-13-a, why you so crazy!
Old-school printer paper

2nd pic: current time is December 2014. Running a program that was compiled in 1992.
What changes in a packaging control system if you've still got a working system? Don't need to fix what ain't broke and in a bad economy there's little reason to change anything is there?
I have a calculator similar to that, from about that time period. It's a slightly different model though, a Texas Instruments SR-11 electronic slide rule calculator. yes, they actually called it that
Inside are three huge terrifying masses of corrosion and dried up acid gently held in by decaying plastic wrappers that were once called batteries.
Sorry to hear your top gear was eaten by the batteries. Can't have a retro computer thread without the robots they sold at the time.
Heathkit. No computer trade show without a robot or fifty wheeling around.
It's not all bad though. The interesting thing about the calculator is that the batteries are held in by contacts. So if I wanted to (and I probably will at some point, if I get around to cleaning up the biohazardous rock that's formed where the batteries were) I could put in some nice new rechargables, I'd just have to make sure the voltage matches up.
Plus anything new put in could easily last 5x as long, if not longer.
i can't help but notice the amount of women in those pics.
where women good at computers back then ?
what happened ?
Well, they did all the secretary-like shit when it came to those operations. It's not like most of them were the actual engineers or scientists.
If only she were smug.
now this is some geek grannyporn
Oui, je veux une autre lettre, merci.
These are mostly just ads.
comes with great editing software
I need to save these
The used tampon nebula
The fuck are those even for? Getting a VHS from the high shelf?
Is that blue transparent one an Amiga?
If this really counts as canser, it is the benign, malignant variety.
