    Clint should've called it "The stew episode" because it's a stew of cut footage and new footage.

    I used to use them all thru college at WPI for solid modelling, FEA and CAD. They were awesome! I wish I could buy a case and put a modern computer in them they always looked cool.

    pretty sure most of my computer fans have been thermaltake... Also, I get people who regularly ask if the company I work for sells computer power supplies because they want to make a cheap lab power supply... After working with DC power supplies and making enough make shift things, things like this isn't amazingly surprising honestly...

    also I know enough smokers to know that while it seems stupid as hell to have a cig lighter in a computer, it definitely will get used, and the computer will also definitely get choked up with a room full of cigarette smoke/ash/tar... Never underestimate the stupidity of people, because it's literally never ending... If only you could harness it into energy somehow...

    Clint, you can now do this with an FPV headset and transmitter, and any cheap RC car.

    But… why? Yes, it’s a small 486… until you supply all the supporting hardware and it goes back to being a full-size computer. Guessing this application is not its original niche.

    "jazzy musical vistas" - Is the caption during the opening to this video! 😎 That tickled me enough that I stopped scrolling through my feed to come comment (not to worry, I'd already added the video to my "buffer" playlist to watch later. That's exclusively how I watch all NLdron videos now in order to "hack" my recommendation algorithm so it doesn't spiral into stagnation!) Anywho, I was just curious as to whether that caption was written by you (does sound like something you'd say; I think maybe I've even heard you say it!), or if it was AI generated? I'm actually not sure which would be cooler, but either way I like it!

    When I was doing an engineering internship around 1990, I used a Summagraphics digitizing tablet like that one (I think it was the 1824 model, 18" tall by 24" wide) with the same 'puck'. It was attached to the department's PC based AutoCAD workstation, a 386 with dual monitors -- a large 17" to display the drawing and a smaller one showing the AutoCAD command screen. We had a big plastic overlay attached to the pad with AutoCAD commands and widgets. It was so cool to use... Also, I have Windows 1.01 from 1985 -- but it's not in Microsoft packaging. It came bundled with my Heath/Zenith Z-248 286-based PC, so it's in Heath/Zenith packaging. I don't have that PC any more, but I do have the EGA monitor, and a slightly newer 286 hooked up to it, running DOS 6.22 and Windows 1. Other than playing Reversi, Windows is not really very useful except to launch DOS programs, and the later DOSShell is actually better at it...

    Up to your fourth donation (modular synth component), and I can only say one thing: TWITCH TECHNO CONCERT? XD EDIT: Box o' Monorail stuff - ABOUT THE MWAVE: I had that card built in my first computer: The IBM Aptiva 2146-C31. The MWAVE is a hybrid modem/soundcard, whose DAC SUCKS under DOS (it can only mix up to 20KHz audio in DOS, unlike the full range in Windows). That caused me to ask for the AWE 64 Gold for a birthday present. Which I still have to this day! :P EDIT DEUX: ...Phone Blas-- . . . my gawds, CREATIVE MADE THEIR OWN MWAVE!!!!!!! WITH AN SB16 IN IT! o.o

    Escape Velocity, the greatest game ever released on the early macintosh: shareware, hack-able, moddable, endlessly enjoyable. Amazing universe and gotta love the shareware reminder pilot who would kill you if you didn't eventually pay for the game. Captain Hector.

    It's funny, in general, that we went from large bulky laptops, to small laptops, to large laptops again (thinking, gaming laptops). Of course now we have tablets like the Surface Pro and Apple iPad Pro that could run circles around even the gaming laptops of this era. The one technology IBM had that I could never really get used to was the stupid trackpoint. I mean even the integrated trackball (Compaq had a unique idea to put it into the screen in some models) but the trackpoint was never something i ever used. Felt weird to use.
