    Do you know what a cake platter is? That's what hard drives used to be.

    Also..PCs were IDE, derp! You even mentioned the ribbon cable and slave/master jumper settings.

    So..are you a MacFag or what? You know, back then you could run whatever in the socket of the motherboard. Unless Apple gimped it.
    ROFLMAO.. You do know that it is possible to buy an SCSI card to put in an IDE slot, right? A SCSI scanner or external jazz drive isn't going to work without a SCSI connection.

    You need to look up ATA drives and how they attach.

    If you don't believe me what they cost, you can check this site which confirms my memory. A 10gb drive for under $200 in December of 1999.
    https://mkomo.com/cost-per-gigabyte

    My first computer was an Apple II, followed by a IIc and then a Lisa. I was also using an 80286 then as well at work. I don't have any of them anymore. It's not like I need more than 6 or 7 computers sitting on a shelf not being used.
    I bought a custom built 386 for $2000 probably in about 1989. From there I moved to a 486. I don't recall if I ever personally owned a 586 or not.

    In 1999, I would have been working with Linux, Mac and Windows. Computers are tools. The best graphic machine in 1999 was a Mac. My home machine was probably the K-6 machine I built myself and had dual boot.
    Yep, you're a MacFag.

    K-6 in 1999, hmm? Interesting.

    How many Mhz did it run at?

    Btw, did I tell you my 1st comp was a TRS-80? It was.

    I am capable of running and maintaining 3 different OSes. If that scares you, I guess that's on you.

    I don't remember and I don't really care.

    So you understand that having a working copy and backup is important, right?

    I bet that comp you're talking about had a 200 Mhz processor which puts it in the "Last days".

    Kali got a Pentium 200 and a T1 connection. He could freeze lobbies at will, and often he'd IM me before doing so and link me to the devastation!

    Yes, some good times were had, and now asshats own the internet.



    Doh! I forgot to check the tech stocks today.

    It'll be aight.

    I was leaving about the time you were getting started. That's right about when the fags took over AOL.

    Fags took it over and turned it to shit. They ruin everything.

    AOL might still be around if not for faggots.

    I left home with my GF so I didn't keep up for a long time.

    Duh. It's also why I know a network where multiple computers have been compromised doesn't get back up to full functionality in just a few hours. It has to be done in stages.

    So when you were hacking and caused other people's computers to not work properly it was all just good fun.

    It was! Zomg! They had to reboot! Oh! Teh horror! I gave them a blue screen, Oh!

    Oh, then there was the deltree-ing of the pedos, but they're pedos, they deserved to be deltreed.

    I could watch them go offline as all their stuff was deleted.

    Deltree C:\ *.*

    Is it more fun having Google control what you can and can't see on the internet today? I think not.

    How much do you have tied up in the market right now? Round figure.

    How much do you have tied up in the market? Round figure, Mr. "balance sheet".

    What's the balance on your porfolio?

    Personally managed in online broker accounts invested directly in individual stocks, options and ETFs, not counting mutual funds in retirement accounts, about $750,000.

    Your turn to tell us how much you have tied up in the markets.

    Not that much.

    I get a good ROI, though.

    Apparently I was taught different than a lot of people.

    I cannot fathom why tech stocks are sky-high when they are bringing nothing to the market and haven't for 6 mos or more.

    Willing to bet that doesn't last and they dive to the bottom.

    Willing enough to keep money back for when that does happen.

    You would really have to work not get a good ROI in the last couple of decades.

    Mutual funds in my 401K have a 45% return for the last year.

    My wife invested 100K last year, and hers sits at 163K as of this morning.

    Mine is $10,088,395.65 as of five minutes ago.

    Thanks for asking.
