I haven't put up a screenshot in awhile, so here's what I'm looking at these days. The background is a photo of ENIAC, the first supercomputer ;)

Cool!
And it had wheels!
I'm sure they were taking joy rides while they waited for the tubes to warm up.

Cool! I always liked those old huge boxy super computers with the tubes and such.

I saw a nice (Not ENIAC) Super Computer on a show called The Know Zone that was talking about how you could buy an ole Super Computer for $200. This was a few years ago. If I could have, I would have. It was a Refridgerator sized box with lights and switched. Almost like an oversized ALTAIR. Which I wouldn't mind having either.

Altairs go for around $1000 on eBay. I've toyed with the idea of buying parts and building a generic S-100 bus box, but really, what would be the point? LOL
