I'm a bit new here on campus but I heard the place to go for ALL YOUR PRINTING NEEDS = xerox(sorta like an I cafe, instead tis used for gaming) The place looks pretty impressive when you walk in, state of the art EVERYTHING.
So I go over to have my assignment printed... on the silly paper with the holes on the sides!! [devil wand]

I can't answer that without more information.

I have an old Recording Dragon. You press his left paw and you get to record your voice for about three seconds. Each time it plays back, its heart would light up. It did this four times. Tons of fun for everyone!
Also, I've got an old Atari that still works with about fifteen games. I've had it all my life and up until about three years ago, it's all I ever played. But when I went on that PS2, wow! Big difference!!!

The Macintosh in my collection is my first. Spent $10.00 for a reasonably powerful 7100/80 with a SCSI drive with bent up pins, all I need now is an O/S, Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor, and maybe a SCSI drive if the 450MB one I pulled out of an old Compaq is not compatible with Apple.

for the longest time, all I had for a computer (this is after my 486 mounted on cardboard) was a 75 mhz pentium over clocked to ~100Mhz, with 3 GIGS of HD (on three drives mind you) and a cd rom. I think I was most proud of my Zenith Data systems 286 Super Sport Laptop, until I destroyed it by spilling iced tea in it's innards while I was repairing it. [ohwell]

I got a ton of old tube stuff. Saving for the apocalypse. And all my dad's old Heathkit stuff.

Speaking of blast von dem past, I have determined that the Marathon trilogy was the apogee of human video games. period.
