This is a 16 bit, 40 Mhz PC.
It has 128 MB RAM.
It can hold up to 300 MBs of stuff.
shit, that's better than my machine
BUT IT HAS DUAL MONITORS!
Fuck, that's a nice rig
This episode alone was 380MB.
40 mhz computers did not have more than 8 mb of RAM
Yugi, lurk moar.
You are a fucking Baller of home-rigs.
This whole anime is one big nostalga trip and seeing how many things you can remember from the old days.
so wtf was that rectangle thing with the scrolling messages?
HAHAHA | NO
You mean a pager? Fuck, how young are the people on /a/ that they can't even remember what a pager is.
At first I was like WTF? a floppy disk? And then I remembered it was a 90s animu.
The more lines of DOS you can see, the better
Sometimes, one wonders if people younger than 22 can't imagine the world before everyone had a computer and an iPod to go with it.
MS-DOS is the true hardcore OS.
Linux fags can go fuck themselves.
That's depressing to think. I can't stand teenage kids these days.
I remember.. it sucked..
but that hasn't changed..
When I was young my great grandfather said something very similar about cars.
This scene made me lol
Those specs are unrealistically high for 1991. As in, you'd need a mainframe to have those specs.
Don't answer idiots' questions
speaking of old.. another GE999 episode has been subbed
Is that bad? Granted, if iPod-users were given control of the world, we'd probably end up back in the dark ages, but taking progress for granted isn't a sin, as long as it's understood why and how that progress happened.
The good old days.
In 1991 Linux had *just* come out and was barely usable, back then the hard-core OS was MINIX
Funnily enough. I still don't own a cell phone or Ipod.
And now I plan on getting a pager for the lulz.
pagers suck, and cellphones are cheap enough that they aren't worth it, unless you specifically require one.
People are stupid and have VERY short attention spans, the ease with which people forget the past is frightening.
Nah, they should be cheap enough. Plus its only for laughs.
Thats because the mentality is that learning history is irrelevant
There's really no point in pagers these days, not with the payphone the dying breed that it is.
Most people do, but not all of them.
WE NEED TO GO BACK TO RIDING BIKES AND USING CANDLES AND COMMUNICATING BY MAIL!
Because you don't take anything for granted, of course.
Housing, electricity, phone lines, trains, cars, airplanes, paved roads, already prepared food, radio, television, ambulances, firetrucks, refrigeration, clothing, tap water etc.
Hey, let's not go over board here....
oh god, pagers, biggest shit ever.
That computer reminds me of the first one i ever had (486 with 16 megs of rams and a 800megs hard drive)
All those good times playing Warcraft I and II, and doom I and II , booting the game via ms-dos prompt
Enough do to outweigh those who don't. It's sad, really. They're really no less intelligent, they just see the world as it is now as the way it must have always been even if they were alive to know it when it had been different.
I remember my dad paid $3500 for A 486DX2 66mhs with a huge 210MB HD. And also RAM where the price of gold sticks back then.
Did it have a CD drive? I remember 486 was pretty much the first processor that could handle it.
/a/ would become extremely slow if we only had mail.
I have an Acorn BBC Micro Model B in the attic which has 32 kb of RAM and you need to know basic to run programs.
I've been using an old IBM until around 2005, 2006 when I finally got to use what people these days consider a proper computer and high speed internet.
and dont forget
>HD anime raws & subs in hours or days and not bad quality VCRs in weeks or months
I love how advance so much of our technology is but there is still so much shit that's still used today that's 10 years old.
But we could send physical manifestations of sage to each other.
Hot damn, that'd be cool.
Intel 386 40 mhz processor, 8 mb ram, 80 mb hard drive space. Bitchin - costed $2500 in 1989.
Like your little sister?
Don't quit your day job Anon.
Advances in technology don't apply to everything. Steel was used to make buildings 80 years ago, and it's still used today.
In contrast, you won't find a 10 year old cellphone in too many pockets.
As you stated in your letter, No.>>10051207, our discussion group would become rather slow. However, I believe that I have found some reliable mailmen for us to use. I look forward to your reply in a week or two.
P.S. I heard that Kaiji episode 20 has been subtitled. Would you mind providing me a parcel for it if this it true?
Wah wah waaaah
If you know each others exact address you really aren't that anonymous.
And even that super-rig couldn't open this /a/ thread. Even Netscape 1.0 didn't come out till 1994.
/a/ A scholarly analysis of the advent of new technology within the past 10 years and how society has adapted to said technology.
aka - A History of Internet Porn
17 years...fuck me. Fuck /a/ for making me feel old.
/a/ would probably be a underground gentlemens club where the lights are turned low and the air is full of smoke and everyone wears a hat so everyone ends up being anonymous anyways.
It'd be great until we get busted by the cops.
protip: you _are_ old
The 386 processor came out in 1987, so there were 32 bit machines back then. The 386 could do up to 40 Mhz, though.
128 MB of RAM in '91 is really high. My machine from the early 90's had about 1 MB of RAM.
300 MB of hard drive space was expensive, but doable.
Y HALO THERE
Cigars, trench coats, top hats, and anime.
Maybe they meant KB. 128 wouldn't be possible in a computer that size, if at all.
128 mb ram is sooo overkill , even my pentium 133 had like 32mb
sounds classy, I'd sign up - if I didn't get black balled.
don't like a troll? challenge them to a duel.
newfags would be put through several embarassing initiazation rites.
tripfags? they'd be the crusty old geezers who never move from their leather arm-chairs and smell of piss.
it was possible in 1991 just very unlikely without custom hardware and a LOT of money to spend. I remember having to spend ~ $100,000 to buy 1GB of RAM for a server in 1995.
128 MB ram for that imaginary slow machine? why?
We need someone to draw non-electronic /a/. It would be epic.
I love this anime
YOU FOOLS. TRY FIXING A COMPUTER AS OLD AS YOUR ARE FOR YOUR GRANDMOTHER.
1989 Packard-Bell ftw. 2800 baud modem for getting into those steamy BBSs and LIGHTSPEED and PLANET'S EDGE games, TETRIS, HOVERCRAFT, and 688 ATTACK SUB MOTHERFUCKERS.
GW-BASIC KICKED ASS. DOS 3.21 STILL KICKS ASS. POP-UP DOS BY LOGITECH KICKED EVEN MORE ASS. JESUS CHRIST! RIBBON PRINTERS THAT SCREAMED!
IT cost $400,000 to play Crysis on this computer for 12 seconds.
Yes! I fucking old computers!
and that was just in 2007
I still remember the sound my 56k modem made when I connected to the internet on my P200.
>tripfags? they'd be the crusty old geezers who never move from their leather arm-chairs and smell of piss.
so true it hurts!
NO! DOSBOXING LIGHTSPEED RIGHT NOW! GORGEOUS FULL 3D STRATEGIC SPACE BATTLES! DON'T FORGET TO BUY FUEL OR YOU'RE FUCKED.
If you're computer you can't boot into a version of BASIC burned into ROM, you're a newfag, end of story.
This all reminds me of getting people to run GW-BASIC and them never knowing how to exit, because there's function key for SYSTEM.
Also, inb4 GW-BASIC was not in ROM.
FUCK, WHY WON'T THEY MAKE TIE FIGHTER WORK ON NEW COMPUTERS
A slightly noir example from somewhere else, but it's how I think of it. Sort of.
Linux + WINE works
This thread makes me feel old, fuck you /a/
who's this kchasm fellow? somesort of writer?
wasn't GW-BASIC the port of BASICA so you didn't need a BASIC rom?
I preferred browsing /a/ via gopher.
Hey gais, I herd they're making a UBW installer compatible with >>10050519
I think that's a /jp/ meme now
gopher, wow that takes me back along with connecting to IRC via telnet as no client existed for my machine.
Because I was bored: http://www.littletechshoppe.com/ns1625/winchest.html
haha oh wow
look at the timestamps! /a/ was sure slow back then
Needs updating. Cost per gigabyte is <00.25 now..
/a/ now faps at the speed of light
Not /a/, we had two orders of magnitude more posts at that time and the format is all hosed. The idea is what counts though
