My Classic Computer Drives Me NUTZ because...

Recommended Posts

I live on the wrong side of the Atlantic to collect stuff at a reasonable price for my favoured machine.

My Classic Computer Drives Me NUTZ because...

... it never pesters me! I've become so conditioned by modern Windows computers that, if I'm not always being forced to check for updates, scan for viruses, upgrade my plugins, reboot, clean the registry, defrag the hard disk, delete temporary files, troubleshoot some errant process that's eating the computer alive from the inside, or some other maintenance task that somehow always pops up and bothers me while I'm working, it's very disorienting. Put me in front of a classic computer that does one thing at a time, that does it well, and that never interrupts me, and suddenly I can't remember what I'm looking at, what I'm doing, or even who I am anymore. I start getting fidgety within five minutes, because somehow, I just need to check for updates!!!

I can no longer find them in the wild or find spare parts/components for them for reasonable prices (usually) because the "trend" lately is the belief that these are made of gold and will make you rich beyond your wildest imagination!
