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.
But The question is can you overclock it ?
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...
it the dame as $5 98 pc
If he could fire on an angle it would be better
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.
Imagine if transistors were never invented
i kinda want an old vroken one so i can build a modern gaming rig in it
In the beginning my thought was "What the heck? Is this a console or a VHS player? And what is the storage/removable media that it is using? VHS cassettes?
Holborn = Stonks.
The Gizmondo always seemed so cool to me, I wish Colours got released on phones or tablets, it seemed like a pretty cool game It's a shame so much potential went to waste
Kinda wish you could drag other Sims to their deaths as a Mermaid or Merman.
17:69 Are you using Unoficial Microsoft Windows 98 SE service pack 3?
All music noises in this videos pleases me
Review fallout 2. Don't be a coward, lose your freinds and family and embrace the *FALLOUT 2*
IBM serrrrriously dropped the ball with their exorbitant pricing. basically it cost the company their market.
I think the first graphics card I ever bought was a 32mb 3D Prophet! GTA 3 was great on it
From a 2014 ad I have: "Get an i7 4700mQ! 4 cores for ultimate gaming performance!" :')
Oh dear god. EEE POCK.
Hot wheels STD sounds like something you'd get after picking off from a sketchy dating site
Clint plugs in a device to his PC. PC makes an affirmative sound. Me: "What the hell did just plug into my Laptop and why?! Oh, it's from the video..." Clint unplugs the device from his PC. PC makes an affirmative sound. Me: "What the hell did just unplug from my Laptop and why...?!"
That video you made, makes so much sense, at the same time as it makes absolutely no sense at all. It should've been the only video humanity sent out on Voyager.
That "hardware" sure sounded Bostonian!
I can’t just imaging his old boss: “Clint, I appreciate your attention to detail but you can’t spend 90min on each frame.”
This is one of the first horror games I ever played.
You really want to game on this thing? Bit of an unfair test guy
Interesting to watch you unbox the Sound Blaster. I use to sell those at our Software etc. store!
a full 15inch laptop for a 2 month old baby
burger keycaps and airbrush one of the trashcan mac pros into a tall stack burger?
I saw that calculator and right away I was thinking Space 1999....
6:53 The moment this started, my drink began to glow in the dark.
Oh, god. Old media player... memories of getting high then staring at the visualizer while listening to eiffel 65. 🤣
"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!
Great review, would be superb to have now the Black Mesa one :)
I really REALLY REEAAALLLYYY hope that aquarium case is the next video you make.
My grandma has a nokia.
How can 82 people not like this tech goodness?
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...
I had to pay $100 for whatever model was out in 04 that we were basically just renting from the school for my senior year and it was mandatory for both my math classes then turn it back in before graduation.. We used it twice the entire fucking year!! Lol
Oh wow, that rechargable battery looks like the one used in the Epson R-D1
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
Colossal Order should do with Sims what they did with SmiCity.
LGR you have a scar in your right hand, how do you get it? I have a similar one. Is the mark of the beast?
I remember these, I had one on my desktop, you could order them on new machines, everyone was starting to have them. Then CD's came and they went bye bye into the anals of history.
This was one of my favorite games
44:30 Imagine a moden version of the isepic, can't imagine how that would be done though.
can you ship alcohol across state lines ?
Can't wait for the aquarium PC build video!
I swear I've watched this more than 20 times.
Dude that song at the beginning that you mixed was sick!!!
the only good part of Salt Water Taffy is buying it at the beach.
this is weird i thought lgr literally only liked smooth jazz i can't believe i've been lied to all my life
Too many videos to wait for just from this batch, damn!
Huh, i am really curious about trying something like this with dolphin emulator as a virtual wiimote to be honest.
The Windows installation will be "sleeping with the fishes"
I found the sound of the rain soothing to my soul.
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.
I loved this game, where could i buy or download it today? I think there were some creature expansion packs too.
The Russian Campaign is the best i think! One of the best RTS games of all time!
Great job and fantastic memories.
Please play school tycoon !!!!
Imagine when Clint passes (god forbid) and his next of kin passing all his stuff off to a good will store..... Lines out the door and down the street :)
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.
Dick Buster?????? Omfg! Oh sweet Jesus
Wow Dell used to be good
Timex Watch = LGR OddWEAR? xD
Respect for DEC. Even today, I still set my default terminal width to 132 cols.
My favorite game as a kid wow
You could run all your led lights light 24/7 and use less energy than all incandescent bulbs with this home automation.
Monospace characters are very 'programmery' !
14:10 that a is bellsouth/southern bell first aid kit, my grandpa has one
This looks amazing
Honestly I'd like to have a modernized one of these for my physical media, with cd-burning
Was it possible for people to hook up their PC to a hifi stereo back then? Did those audio cards have line outputs, or were they specific for PC speakers?
Man and I thought Denuvo was shit, at least you don't always have to be online for that
Oh man. That Viking DLE-200B phone line simulator can link up 2 sega saturns if you have the modem attachment. Thats the arcade at home dream!
