    thanks @Thunder5Ranch

    we could use some parts or new boxes to make sure that it does self-detonate the next time we upgrade it :)

    I have some slightly used....... bulging and and just starting to leak capacitors going to a Box if that will help :p In all seriousness though I will make a donation to the cause in a week or so.

    Na I retired that motherboard a while back it had other issues. Like the smoke that came from mysterious places during boot up. I just dabble around with Win95-XP compatible hardware. Since I have hated every operating system since XP if I want my old and ancient games and software to work I have to scrounge parts and build my own machines now days. I actually have a large and good selection of EL-Caps, Scrounged Hard Drives..... Amazing what people leave on hard drives when they trash a computer! Folks really should remove the hard drives and physically destroy them :)

    yep @Thunder5Ranch [ditto]

    physical destruction is the only way [​IMG]

    the hard drives should be crushed or shredded then melted down

    Believe it or not, I am still running an old version of Macromedia Fireworks MX (2004), on Windows 10. I certainly got my money's worth from this piece of software. :)

    I am working on my latest find a old 200mmx system that operates on Windows. I know that somewhere in some shoe box, I have some memory sticks that are compatible with it! Last one I put together was a ancient all in one with a 10" monochrome monitor and a state of the art 15MB Seagate hard drive. Someone actually paid me $600 for that fossil.
