Latest catch: T23

#1 Post by wujstefan » Fri Sep 14, 2018 4:11 pm

I hate Thursdays.
And they are no better to me.

It's the time each week where all the problems come out, yet still far away from weekend.
I had a car accident on Thursday.
I have engaged on Thursday.
And much, much more.

However, this time it seemed a Thursday wanted to say "sorry for the bad times", and plopped me this machine. For ~$30.

Now I only need recovery for W2K, and a US keyboard :D

Not sure why this is a bad thing on a Thursday but ok....
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

I used one of these machines for a long time as a system engineer maybe 15yrs ago?

The machine was nothing special, P3-1000, 512mb, 120gb hdd etc.

Running XP Office XP/2003 and the usual apps at the time. I think it had 2 usb over the single usb on the older units.

Also I beleive it has the S3 Savage with 8Gb? Ok gpu for 2d but didnt support widescreen.

Well the system has its flaws that need to be taken care about (RAM slot failure), but this is 15-yeaars-old piece of history after all :)

Happy to have it at my stable anyway :)
