    My Pentium processor looked dirty..so I washed it!

    It's true! the chip was all covered with thermal goop and dirt so I washed it in water and dish soap..very nice and squeeky clean now.

    How funny!

    I was just thinking about my good 'ol Pentium 60 (yes, the very first one; with the "bug").

    I now keep it just as a paperweight/monitor-top trinket, and I was noticing how it was starting to look like a pet rock from all of the handling. Maybe I'll drop it in the dishwasher and see what happens!

    I think it's safe to say that I won't be relying on this chip for any future upgrades; and it won't be worth anything at all for many more years when it might be an E-Bay $50 auction item for its nostalgia value.

    It's a great computer geek conversation piece!

    You guys are laughing at a Pentium? You don't know what slow is all about. Witness my 486/66 in action.

    Did you like that? Think the 486 is a gaming machine? Think again, folks.

    Ha, my first system was a IBM clone 286 @ 10 MHz, 1028kb of RAM, 40 MB WD HD, no sound card, no vid card, only had monochrome display and no mouse either. I really loved the game 4D BOXER but it kept on crashing (I think I needed more RAM).

    BTW, does anyone know where I can still get 4D BOXER? I swear, it was the best boxing game ever (and must be one of the first 3D game ever).

    No harm done right... I wash my processors too... cards, RAM and fans.

    The only thing I don't wash are drives.
