The Dust Cake-Ridden 386
This is one of the few computers I found during the winter. The inside of it was caked in dust and it refused to turn on despite the power supply being in working order. So, the hard drive got pulled out and put into my test box. Windows 3.1 really flies at 833 MHz!
Here's something cool I found on it... Remember when Yahoo.com looked like this?
Yeah, neither do I. It's a cached HTML file from 1996.
The computer was also packed with software, most of it being quite useless to me. However, I did find the sweet spot... the place where all documents were stored. I sat and read a few files, and I couldn't help but burst out laughing!
If you've been poking around this place for the past week or so, you may have noticed that I've created a new blog. Like all the others, this blog contains data from a computer I found in the trash. However, this one's a bit different... It's the first blog with files that were written by a male. Normally when I find a computer that belonged to a male, it's filled with porn. Not this one... it's filled with business letters, and they're mostly complaints.
So, I invite you to come along and join me in the exciting journey of Donald's Business Ventures!
