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.
>>
Sauce?
>>
40 mhz computers did not have more than 8 mb of RAM
>>
LOL 1991

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?
>>
>>10050573
HAHAHA | NO
>>
>>10050613
You mean a pager? Fuck, how young are the people on /a/ that they can't even remember what a pager is.
>>
>>10050599
At first I was like WTF? a floppy disk? And then I remembered it was a 90s animu.
>>
>>10050530
The more lines of DOS you can see, the better
>>
>>10050634

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.
>>
That's awesome.
>>
MS-DOS is the true hardcore OS.

Linux fags can go fuck themselves.
>>
>>10050727
That's depressing to think. I can't stand teenage kids these days.

source?

>>10050727
I remember.. it sucked..
but that hasn't changed..
>>
>>10050727

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.

danke

speaking of old.. another GE999 episode has been subbed
>>
>>10050727

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.
>>
>>10050758
In 1991 Linux had *just* come out and was barely usable, back then the hard-core OS was MINIX
>>
>>10050937
Funnily enough. I still don't own a cell phone or Ipod.

And now I plan on getting a pager for the lulz.
>>
>>10050974
pagers suck, and cellphones are cheap enough that they aren't worth it, unless you specifically require one.
>>
>>10050937

People are stupid and have VERY short attention spans, the ease with which people forget the past is frightening.
>>
>>10051011
Nah, they should be cheap enough. Plus its only for laughs.
>>
>>10051083
Thats because the mentality is that learning history is irrelevant
>>
>>10051011

There's really no point in pagers these days, not with the payphone the dying breed that it is.
>>
>>10051083
Most people do, but not all of them.
>>
BAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

WE NEED TO GO BACK TO RIDING BIKES AND USING CANDLES AND COMMUNICATING BY MAIL!
>>
>>10051083

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.
>>
>>10051157
Hey, let's not go over board here....
>>
good show
>>
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
>>
>>10051138

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.
>>
>>10051193

Did it have a CD drive? I remember 486 was pretty much the first processor that could handle it.
>>

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.

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.
>>
>>10051207
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.

>>10051277

Zing.

>>10051255
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.

"Dear Anonymous,

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?

Sincerely,
Aninymous."

/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.

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.

Cigars, trench coats, top hats, and anime.

Awesome.
>>
>>10051633
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
>>
>>10051673
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.
>>
>>10051685
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?
>>
>>10051770
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.

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

wasn't GW-BASIC the port of BASICA so you didn't need a BASIC rom?

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
