      That's some excellent classic hardware.

      We use our old hardware for enjoyment, but it's also still useful for
      real practical applications. Stupid people say things like "but there's
      newer stuff out there!" as if that really means "newer" is automatically
      "better". A lot of the time it just isn't the case.

      Fortunately for us, we think for ourselves, and can find vast
      enjoyment, and even get some real work done, using awesome classic
      hardware like this. It's enjoyable, it's practical (though possibly
      only barely so), and it's Just Plain Fun.
