impulse buys are the best buys ??
Yeah I wish that gameport adapter had been available when I ordered my Dreamblaster S1. If I do buy something again from Serdashop, it will be on the list. I love their products.
Got myself a hopeless project board:
Lets see if a good clean and trace restoration will fix her up. If not, it is practice anyway.
Bought a whole heap of things for $30 today as a gamble. A container full of AGP cards, S3 Diamonds, 3dfx rush, sis, NVIDIA Riva and ATI 7500 - 9200 cards.
Two Antec 900 and 1200 cased PC's with no side panel. One has an Gigabyte X58 mobo with no ram and HDD and other has a then high end Asus P5D-S mobo with C2Q with 5 x Seagate 1.5TB SATA drives still installed. Will be interesting what I'll find on the drives presuming they work and/or previous owner hasn't wiped data.
Should be a nice profit for me even if less than half works I think.
Ok plugged the PC with drives in, has two burners and capture video card.
Had a look at some contents. Pc came from a strip club.
Now said content gets uploaded to file repo and shared…
Pc heavily covered in tar. Came from a smoke environment. Vacuumed bit of it.
Lots of videos of private booths with clients and strippers/escorts?

Come on... share the love... lolol
you call that heavily covered in tar? Either you haven't been around many computers or many smokers, or both.
I've cleaned computers from OCD neat freaks that were worse than that!
You can't vacuum tar. It infuses with any dust to create a thick paste that looks normal until you try to clean it, where upon it will smear into everything.
Cleaning a smokers PC is the worst thing in the world. If those fans are PURE tar, it's still a light amount.
No it was alot worse before blow and vacuum.
or was that blow and lap-dance?
Lucrative income potential?
My new crazy video card arrived!!!
Oooh queued. I still need to watch the last one!
Is that card made by the same Russian hobbyist currently manufacturing Voodoo 6000 cards?
Yep. He has made a range of interesting and odd cards.
Nice expensive? I wonder if has recreated any GeForce 5950 ultras or 9800xt's?
I don't think it is expensive for what it is, expensive but not crazy. He has asked to keep price not super public but if you PM me I will give you the exact price.
Basically he has to be able to find schematics of the chips and able to purchase new old stock of them. For the Voodoo 4/5/6 he was able to reverse engineer the PCB though!
He has done stuff based on: 3dfx, s3 and powervr. Maybe more but that it what I've seen. The VSA100 chip I think it is the newest he has done so far.
Could it be possible if he could make a custom Voodoo 9000 card?
