Windows 95?!?! Ack!!!

| 1 Comment

So I spent the past two hours helping Dave B. get files off of his father's ancient and practically dead Windows 95 Compaq.

At 24MB of RAM, the little bugger was oh so speedy!

Let's just say... thank god Matt found some parallel port Zip drives at work to do the job.

No USB. No working floppy. No network card.

Without the Zip this'd been a pain in the ass!

And there was a surprise for me too! Seems that Mary Beth happened to find a rather yellowed, but physically complete G1 Jetfire in the trash that some neighbors were throwing away! Sure he's missing his armor, gun, and is yellowed, but we are talking on of the greatest 1980s figures ever released!!!

He's now a proud member of the Attic Of Love™, I'll have you know that updated and new pics are available in case you are just lame enough to check out my addiction.

And speaking of the Attic Of Love™, you'll be happy to know that there are now 556 Transformers in my attic.

Today's acquisitions, though not arrived yet to share their love, are a G1 Trypticon that I've been craving for years, as well as a Takara Lio Caesar figure, and... while I really didn't need it... the impossible to find anywhere K-Mart Exclusive Armada Optimus Prime and Jetfire Gift Set!

Then again... do I ever really need any of it?

You know, I have no idea where my old w95 computer is. And it has my thesis, all my emails from before the advent of www, letters to an ex-gf...

Archiving technology certainly sucks.
