Finally, I’ve managed to finish my retro DOS/Windows 98 build machine based on powerul Athlon.
By finish i mean assemble parts on the table without any case. Why no case? Answer is simple: i’m lazy.
And it is more convenient to me to keep it as open testbed for weirdo experiments of my own.
Collecting items took almost four months to accomplish this project.
Puter consists of multitude parts, which were acquired around the globe.
Netherlands, Russia, Germany, USA, Australia, Japan and others. Don’t remember all of them.
And now I would like to share some restricted computer porno with all of you guys.
