I score a bunch of car mags from the late 60s to early 70s from this huge & awesome antique shop about 15 min from my house. Never knew it was there and I found it completely by accident. I can't wait to go back!

My recent other nongaming find was four geode based pcs a friend of mine was getting rid of. These little 400mhz pcs would fit in a lunchbox and I can run all four off of one 300 watt power supply.

Can you explain what a "geode based pc" is? Because cheap old computers that can fit in a lunchbox would be awesome for conventions and that stuff!

I finally found a vehicle to replace my aging 99 Neon R/T which had reached the point where things were worn out left and right and needing more attention than they were worth to me. I am now the proud owner of a 2005 Saabaru. It is the Linear model, not the turbo Aero, but it does have both upgrade packages for leather, hid headlights, heated seats/side mirrors/wipers, and the 6 disc changer. I hope I can handle all the fancy. Oh and of course manual transmission. :mrgreen:

Geode is a processor made by AMD for super lower power consumption:

I actually havent had a chance to get those machines up and running yet. They moved my office to a place that takes me an hour to get to and two to get home from so my time for goofing off with tech has disappeared.
