New Section for Older Computers/Builds?


Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I feel like having a forum section dedicated to retro/older stuff (visible on the main page) would be helpful as there is a vast wealth of knowledge in this forum, and I would assume that there are many users here who are knowledgeable about older computers. Often times, older computers can be a PITA due to driver issues, etc.


It would also be cool to have a place to post about restoration projects, since the problems along the way would be helpful to others.


Lmk if anyone else is interested in such a topic!

I like the idea.  How much traffic would there be?  Only one way to find out.  But I've got a Pentium II sitting under my desk right now, and indeed it's always been a pain getting drivers working with its network card...


That reminds me too, I need to go back and finish that blog post on getting WiFi up and working on a 1997 ThinkPad...

I would be down with that.  I am in the process of looking for my old P2 system I had put away for vintage 3.5" floppy games and games from the sierra namesake.  Got to love those.
