PC, but apart from Laptop, PC and MAC. I don't think there would be too many votes on the rest

Specially a Game Console, why would you be on cprog if you didn't have a normal computer?

PC. It was a package made by Tiny Computers Inc. but with a few add-ons ie. new keyboard/mouse/speakers/soundcard/processor/HD/CD-RW...
I just rebooted it and am not very happy about being stuck using MSIE V 5.0!! That and I can't find the jewel case for Microsoft Works that has the CD-KEY on it! ::Groan::

I'm downloading Netscape Navigator ::bows to the master:: 6.2 as I type! :D


Series X4 1.0

Mostly PC, and my brain.

case for Microsoft Works that has the CD-KEY

GHAAA!!! :eek:

Don't you use pirated Microsoft software? I'm scared.

Alright, we can all make mistakes sometimes (well I can't). Now install Linux instead.

I don't have a computer. I use a x86 configuration of stones, sticks, and mud to beat tones onto a telephone line that is attached to my tongue.

I get about 2400 baud on my fast days for connection rate, and about 10 processes per minute. My memory is CRS, and my bus speed is about 55 mph if there isn't any traffic.

I have eighty friends that like to brag about how bad-ass their computer is and how well they can process AOL software and video games.

I have people that I work with that can do more with a 486/100 than most people I have seen can do with their 1.8G.

For some people, it is nice to have a $2,000 paper weight. I just think it is funny...

01-24-2002, 07:47 PM
PC here.

01-24-2002, 07:56 PM
A PC, a linux box and a laptop

I believe that there is only 1 ENIAC around the globe... But we have two votes!!

01-25-2002, 08:52 AM
You forgot Cray! I don't have one though...

work: Athlon 1.1 Ghz, 256 Mb SDRAM, 30 Gig Maxtor, 32 Mb GF2 & older TNT 2, 2x 19" Monitors, 16x CD RW, 12x DVD

home: XP 1700+, ASUS A7V 266-E RAID, 256 Mb DDR SDRAM, 40 Gig Maxtor, 32 Mb GF2 24x CD-RW, 16x DVD, Sound blaster 5.1.
It'll do anything a 486/100 can do, maybe even a bit faster :)

Gaming Console - in Japan the PS2 has a Linux OS, thus allowing you to develope software using C or C++.

I voted for PC, but use MAC, Laptops, MAINFRAME, and Computer not out on the Market. Just look at my pic by my name and you can guess what other computers I work on.
