sometimes i just don't know what to do. see, the first computer i owned was a upper-mid level 486-25sx with 4mb of ram and a 210 mb hard drive. meeping spiffy, i know. but i didn't come here to gloat. anyway, i think i'll be saying goodbye to it soon, as i already pilfered any fans, useful screws and jumpers from it. it was a packard bell piece of meep, but i'll still miss it. however, my main reason for writing this journal entry is about storage. i have various hard drives in various piddly sizes. i just picked up a 5.25 211 mb hard drive at work, maybe to use it for this. but i don't know. i don't have a problem pitching a 486, as i have a few low-end pentiums around. but i remember the days of installing games and then saving games to a floppy and then uninstalling and installing another game all because my brother and i were in junior high school and couldn't afford $3,000 for a 500MB drive. anyway, i'm thinking there has to be a use for these things. you know, like how if you collect enough pennies you can buy stuff? i just don't know... i was thinking of some crazy raid-type deal, but same size drives i have not. i only hope when i get old and useless, someone will connect me to a bunch of other humans and then we can serve a purpose.
disclaimer: i am not jeff the riffer, i just added the links for 'spice'. oh, and i'm bored as meep at work.
