I had a spare case so I pulled that motherboard and stuff off the underside of the desk and put it inside the case. It was a fun project though. The caseless PC. Cooling it was cheap!

ceyko Tandy 1000 HX was my first. Had to pay 500 bux to go from 256K to 512K RAM. No HDD, 3.5" floppy and I bought an external 5.25 and an internal 1200 baud MODEM.

I use my old machines for misc crap. Right now my new thing is [email protected] They might take a week to knock out 1 work unit....but at least they are doing something.

1st machine I had was an IBM PC with 256kb memory and one 360kb floppy. Got it upgraded to 640kb (LOTs of memory chips to be plugged into the motherboard) and finally stumbled onto the motherload and ran across a 10mb HARD DISK. Had to do a midnight requisition on a PC3270 machine to get/swap a power supply that would power the hard disk. Got busted on this activity and almost got fired
