  • I can't believe how far computers have come, my first pc was a 386 - SX25 cpu, then upgraded to a P90 cpu which cost £1100 inc Mobo!!!. I now have a 8700k

  • That monitor for the Domesday Project terminal sure is blatantly a Phillips/Magnavox monitor of the same basic design as a Commodore 1084...

  • As a Michigander, I was totally unaware that U of M had a computer museum. But heads up to the Brits, the "ch" in Michigan is pronounced like "sh" instead. Our Detroit residents are particularly territorial, and I don't want anyone put off by an overly enthusiastic correction from one of us over a minor mispronounciation.

  • We had RM Nimbus at my senior school and BBC B's. The RM's had some weird version of Windows for Workgroups on them and all we did was draw stuff on paint and send it to each other.

    • I remember our RM Nimbus computers at my high school, turn off the screen and you could still see Windows - if screensavers ever served a purpose it was in schools but our IT department never used them.

  • Awesome sruff there and you know what, i totally agree with you about not to replace your smartphone every year,because theres no reason for that,while extra powerful processor in newer smartphones sounds cool,but you wouldn’t take any much benefit of ir since we most only use it for internet stuff, it’s not that we play 3D games on it and expect more power out of it.

  • "32 X" - if you're reading this, "Super Nintendo" is not an official name for the console according to Nintendo. "SNES" and "Super NES" (both pronounced with the acronyms' letters spelled out, not as words) are, however, and of course "Super Nintendo Entertainment System".
