DCC via Parallel port would be faster IIRC.

I have something like that, six visible 5.25 HH bays, two visible 3.5 FH bays, 4 internal FH bays. It's ancient and I haven't powered it on since early 2004. It's basically a table for my land line phone now.RealBlackStuff wrote: ↑Mon Apr 06, 2020 1:32 amMy PC is a home-built mongrel with varying age.
Lian-Li PC-67 aluminium tower chassis from ca. 2004 (except mine doesn't have the side- and top-fans).
Motherboard and CPU last updated in 2010.
Motherboard ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 with an AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Label (unlocked) 3.2GHz CPU.
Never bothered to update the BIOS.
The monitor is a 19" HP LP1965 (5:4) Monitor with 1280x1024 resolution, from 2008.
Still runs like a champ with 8GB RAM on a 120GB Samsung 830 SSD with W7-Pro/SP1 64-bit, and a 1TB HDD for storage.
I could put in 32GB RAM, but who needs it?
W7 has not had any updates since 2016.
The only 'modern' part is a back-lit Tyrfing V2 88-Key RGB Tenkeyless Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
The back-light colour is permanently set to a soft baby-blue.
I see no need to update/upgrade this machine any time soon.
I think it has a Pentium MMX 266 CPU some Adaptec FW SCSI controllers, about six SCSI HDDs, two SCSI CDRWs and a combo 5.25 / 3.5 diskette drive. I had it set up to boot dos/win, OS/2 or RH Linux. It's the only thing I have that has a 5.25" FDD and that's the only reason I haven't trashed it.
