    Wow. That was a trip down memory lane for me. Just made me realise how long ago I started in computers. 28 years ago now. And funnily enough. While things have changed a lot, they actually haven't changed much at all.

    I had one of those Cyrix CPUs.... terrible thing. Note for around 16:10: Games back then didn't have physics. Also saying "tied to the clock speed" of the CPU makes it sound as if someone put additional work into that, while it was the opposite of that. The code just didn't care for the actual time that had passed since the last frame and instead assumed it ran roughly at a certain speed based on the systems of the time. If your PC a few years later was a lot faster, the game ran a lot faster.

    My Gravis pad was my go to for all of my PC games back in the 90s! One of the features it had was you could flip a switch on it and it, the buttons would invert and someone who was a lefty could turn it around and use it just like someone who was a righty because of its radial symmetry. It did not come with a game pc card to play or plug into, so you had to have a sound card that had a midi port for it to even connect to your machine!

    Hobbyists today are moving from building CNC machines and robots with 8-pit processors to 32 bit processors. I honestly can see those old processors becoming semi useful in the future for one off projects. They are way more powerful than many robots need you can strip the supporting hardware down to the bare minimum, especially on processors with only a few hundred pins.

    I'm so happy for you for being sp successful with this channel. I'm aware that a lot of work goes into all the things you guys make, and that it sometimes may seem like it's all about you, but hopefully, most people know that you're not alone in this. Sometimes I miss a couple of videos and then catch up and realize I've kinda "missed you". Your vibe is great. The only channel where I don't even mind the advertisements. Good days to you all!

    So, I think I had that Sound Blaster that was pulled out of the sound card drawer. I might be mistaken, as mine was the model with the SCSI-2 controller. Pretty sure the sound portion of the card was the same as the SB-16 of that generation though. Mine had the Creative Wave Blaster daughter card though, because at the time I thought I was some kind of audiophile. And I definitely had the Gravis gamepad. Might still in the bottom of a box somewhere. Oh, and I'm sure someone else has mentioned it, but the 5.25" floppy maxed out at 1.2 MB. And I am proud, and humbled, to say I had one of these disk hole punches so you could actually flip it over to get twice the capacity. Oh yeah. that's high tech.

    The capacities on 5 and a quarter floppies (for IBM/clones) ranged from 360 kB to 1.2 megs. We used to cut our own write-protect notches into SS disks and format the other side to double capacity (which shouldn't have worked, but usually did).

    I don't have as much stuff in my house but I do buy older parts on eBay. My recent purchases are Asus Crosshair II Formula, AMD Phenom X4 9950 CPU and ATi Radeon HD 4850 reference design card. I do have Pentium II in my collection, a GeForce 2 and 4 MX cards, GeForce GTX580 3GB, Radeon HD5770, Radeon R9 290X, ASUS Rampage II Extreme with a Xeon CPU, and few other bits I need to have a look at it again.

    On the positive side, that fella's got a LOT of historical-ish PC stuff, possibly enough for a micro-museum of his own.
