Thank you desu. Luckily I have access to a poster printer as you cannot buy the poster anywhere. I can't find any places at all that have Quake posters. If someone has a link that'd be awesome, all I can find is DOOM merch, classic and 2016. I have 2 more DOOM ones on the way + frames to add to my Doom 1 poster, pic related is how it will be laid out on the adjacent wall, but I'm more of a Quake guy, so it sucks that you can't find shit for merch for it. If anybody knows, that'd be awesome, or post more Quake posters so I can print them.

Benjamin Clark

Free. I work in a school district as an IT site manager so I just borrowed the art teacher's poster printer while she was away and printed like 7-8 posters. Unfortunately the others are not up yet as I have to get custom frames, they are 16:9 wallpapers printed to a 24x36 paper, so obviously they had to be trimmed of white space, so they didn't end up being 24x36. I think they're more 15x26. I printed:

Xonotic
Unreal Tournmanet
Thief II
Quake III: Arena
QUAKE

And a couple others. Can't remember, they are in the closet waiting for frames. I'll be posting in /bst/ soon once I get them.

Generally under $20 if you go to china. Otherwise see how much a local shop would charge.

China wont judge you for printing porn posters though.

Not really. The bezel has no place for a floppy eject button, primarily an Apple feature. Not to mention the tiny round power/reset buttons on the right hand side. I'm pretty sure the artist used a PowerMac (or later era Quadra) case a reference point.

Why do anything retro computer? When I was a supreme poorfag and underage, I would scrape together whatever shitty computer I could find and run Linux on it. But if you have literally a spare $20 to your name, you can buy another consumer-grade desktop every few years and beat the curve on whatever 1990s shitbox you're thinking of.

$20 today should get you a Dell from at least 2007.

It's fun and sometimes challenging putting old shit to work, you can find yourself learning about or trying out all kinds of new software and uses for a computer you never would have batted an eye to otherwise. What's the point in having such a practical piece of history when all you do is stare at it and let it rot?

Take hours to get everyone there. The one guy who had to bring the Ethernet hub forgot it. Too late to call his parents so use router as hub and just play age of empires all night.

Big 2000 man lan party. Be 3am in the morning and that one guy screaming "Cunt!" Fucking CUNT CUNT CUNT!" at his Quake opponent. No one does anything cause it's normal there. Hosted in the center of a indoor cycle track in the morning around 6am cyclist walk in on 2000 man autistic shrieks and trying to cross track while they going 60 miles a hour.

Play dota on warcraft 3 at Lan party. Car crashes into the fucking club house we rented whilst we in the 40th min of the game. Pause and call Ambulances turns out it was drunk off duty cop that started playing on my friends guitar and lamenting the few girls who where dragged there by there brothers/boyfriends. Gets arrested and we lost the dota game. Fucking Emo kids plays Blink covers on acoustic guitars like Bards for dota. Man I miss the early 2000's.

Also that guy who would spill Coke on his keyboard at every Lan party he went to. Even started to bring 2nd keyboard along.

Now we just sit in our rooms like fags and scream at people we don't know on mics. I miss the rivalry and comradely of those old days but maybe I has too much member berries.

David Rivera

Yes, but not well. The state of 68k and PPC Mac emulation is years behind Amiga emulation.

All of the available emulators are awful and won't run anything that manipulates hardware at a lower level. They provide a "Mac-like" environment by patching the ROM to talk to generic ethernet/video/etc, rather than emulating a specific set of hardware.

MESS was working on Mac II emulation a few years ago but I don't know where it is now.

Dylan Bailey
Dylan Bailey

Modern I/O and the like kind of clashes with the older look if you ask me, especially IBM's very industrial style.

And going on the specific example, gutting microchannel hardware, even in a not immediately working state also feels like pure sacrilege. That shit's rare as fuck and especially in the case of PS/2 systems it's the way everything is engineered and fit inside that really makes it beautiful.

What particular system is that? Looks a lot like a brick ThinkPad adapter but that weirdo plug design was pretty common.

I don't think it would look terrible with a model M keyboard, and low profile black LCD screens.
Also depends how destroyed the internals are. One such system I exhumed from an attic had baked up to 130F in the summer, and sub zero in the winter, and all the internals were toast.

I built my system in a Power Mac G5 case, but I wouldn't really call it retro.

Logan Cook

Sometimes it's just better to think of a different time.
A time when all I had to care about was my Sims and who was coming over to play Empire Earth
When Habbo Hotel was a demanding online game
When a riced out desktop meant a Winamp skin and the space theme for Windows 98

It just keeps me distracted from what I recognize in the world as an adult, the world has always been shit but as a kid I didn't know it
And my 19 year old laptops brings me back to that feeling of just not knowing or caring

Joseph Miller
Joseph Miller

Sounds like sourcing an AC adapter without paying out the ass would be a pain, feels like ri

From the front you could probably pull it off, but from the back it would be one hell of a hackjob, and when you're doing it solely for the aesthetics, go big or go home.

One such system I exhumed from an attic had baked up to 130F in the summer, and sub zero in the winter, and all the internals were toast.
Wouldn't disagree with that, I'm more thinking of something actually fixable like a failed cap or two, or missing socketed chips.

I built my system in a Power Mac G5 case, but I wouldn't really call it retro.
I could rant about G5 mods forever, but you don't sound like the kind of dipshit gutting a working quad/2.0DP+ for a shitty i3 build I usually like to base my strawmen on.

That's why we like retro stuff man.

I don't keep my G3 around because it's a good computer. It wasn't good at the time, and is borderline useless now.

Takes me back to the days when I'd run home from grade school to hop on RS, and into 6th and 7th grade when I really discovered music. When my biggest concern was the upcoming track meet, and A/V club at school was the coolest thing.

I had some dreams, now I've kinda achieved them and feel lost.

I could rant about G5 mods forever
Snagged it for $30 on CL, the radiator had sprung a leak while the system was running and absolutely fucked the thing.
Got 2 cinema displays of the same gen for $100, and have an apple keyboard from '01.

It's not finished yet, I'm waiting on my video card, and then I'm going to have to figure a way to engineer the rear I/O so its not terrible.

Brandon Parker

I could never do a G5 mod, I'd end up spending weeks color-matching I/O ports and fucking with the ATX mount to make it look as close to the exterior aluminum as possible.

Holy hell that's impressive, I considered an iMac mod but I have limited deskspace.

My plan is to cut a square about the size of the mobo's I/O shield, and then use that apple white plastic to create sort of tunnel to make up for the 1.5" difference (I aligned the mobo with the PCI slots).

implying the G4 doesn't look like a acrylic dildo turned computer case

Parker Rivera

For real, if I was far gone enough I'd jerk off to it, they did it absolutely immaculately. Sucks it's just a one-off thing.

and then use that apple white plastic to create sort of tunnel to make up for the 1.5" difference
That's a pretty good idea, sounds better than the way the conversion kits just make you pretty much cut the whole back out and turn it into a Lian Li knockoff, feels like dealing with that fucking mesh shit would be hell though.

anyway, I've never had luck doing floppy disk transfers from PCs, so if it isn't ready to go already I'd probably try to jew the guy down since you'll probably need a beige-era bridge box with networking capabilities and a phoneNET cable to transfer between the two on top of it

Ever visit /o/ and you see some worthless meme boyracer car shoot up in value for no reason? or boomers looking up some perfect 5,000 mile example of their "classic" and put it up for $50K or some shit. If you hadn't have been vocal and insist they had some hipster value you could actually have lived in your dream parallel universe and walk into any thrift store and find them for $5.

Same exact shit's going on with earthbound and /vr/ and they end up dropping $800 on a perfect version of the cart that's never been opened as they join the cool kids cart club of people who don't own a snes and never have.

One of the first people to compare and contrast two different types of computers was Eve, from the Bible.

She had an Apple in one hand and a Wang in the other.

Thinking that's what I'm going to do. Actually managed to find a couple sites that sold the supplies. But they were mostly Spanish. And out of stock forever. Or $40-$130

The fun part will be fashioning some sort of plug that fits. Oh, and the fact that it switches wattage, depending on what's plugged in.

CRTs are not that power hungry as you may think.

Measured my old 28 inch TV and it had 80W power draw which is not that bad. For comparison 24" Samsung LCD with CCFL has 43W draw, 42" LCD TV 110W.

The new series where Ashens takes random boxes open in The Centre for Computing History is pretty neat, especially if you're interested in the lesser known stuff from the 8 and 16 bit era.

I'm gonna post some pictures of it working (I got the boing demo running) tonight.

Did you use a era correct digital camera to take that picture? Kek.

Did you have any expansions in it?

kek I used the camera on my Treo 650 (I don't know why, I guess I couldn't find my Sony Cybershot)

Did you have any expansions in it?
It doesn't have any yet, but I'm searching for a reasonably priced accelerator (but I'd want to replace it's failing hard drive first)

I heard there may be an IBN 5100 somewhere in akiba, is it just an urban legend? If anyone has information on it please let me know, I'm currently looking for one.

Parker Bailey

There are some new old stock accelerators from Individual Computers you might want to check out.
They are quite expensive though, I'm not up to date with A1200 stuff, there might be cheaper new ones too from other people.

Also get a CF card and the $3 44-pin ATA-to-CF adapter. Won't set you back more than 15 bucks with a 4GB CF card.
Then you can even use a CF card reader and WinUAE to install everything to the CF from your PC, no need to mess around with floppies.

Because this isn't about "hardware appreciation" it is about "I'm better than you". Having the shit is all there is to it because they just take pics and jerk off. Every historical product has people who find it later and use it for butt diddling. Best example outside of this is people who paint my little pony on a 40 year old car or 60 year old gun. They do this because they think anyone who used the hardware at the time would let them fit in into their supposed "great lost decade" when in reality you'd see a 80% suicide rate in two weeks after the time travel when they would have to deal with the bad parts of this era they have conveniently blotted out

Namefagging is quantum bullshit with you guys. Without a name it's "put your name back on" and with one it's "get lost namefag". Did you know you can buy domains for 88 cents and get hosting for less than $3 a month? Or you can try /vr/ where they have 2-3 threads on this per day.

I can't do without a CD/DVD writer.

Constantly have to write music, picture of video disc for school and companies.
Even for friends.

Stereos and video players there don't have USB, even if they would, I don't want to give out USB sticks and hope I get them back.

Also my own computers. Comfy to have it in the case then dongling by a cable.

Noah Cox

This.
I get asked for ISOs, music, videos, whatever all the time.
Wouldn't ever give out my 64GB stick and expect to get it back.

"Opps, I lost it!"
Uses it for as their own now

This morning I got my 380ED to connect to the Internet via a PCMCIA to Ethernet card
The 3rd one I bought, it only wanted the IBM one
I'm gonna shitpost from 48mb of ram and a 166mhz Pentium MMX tonight
It loaded Cred Forums, but I had to go to work before I had the chance to post anything
Might have to get a 4chin pass to bypass the captcha though

Brandon Howard

It will probably do fine, my Compaq Contura with 12MB and 100MHz 486DX4 shitposts fine with a PCMCIA WiFi card.

Don't know what to say, what are you planning on using as a OS?
FreeDOS would be fine together with something like Win98.
