When I built my first computer back in 1998 using a new Intel processor called the "Celeron" I felt like I was king of the computing world. I had a dial-up connection with 28.8 KBps and a whole bunch of games ranging from Warcraft II and Starcraft to Tribes and Half LIfe to Diablo and Baldur's Gate; all of which I could play on my screaming new machine. So back in those days you had wicked fast Pentium III or AMD K6 II processors, U.S. Robotics modems, 128MB of RAM, a 3.5" floppy in addition to your Iomega Zip Drive and the stunningly fast 40x CD-ROM (note that I did not say "CD-RW" ); man those were the days. My 15" CRT monitor could do 1280x1024! With my Matrolx Mystique AGP graphics card I was the absolute bomb; heck, I could store TONS of data on my 10GB hard drive. Imagine my long-forlorn sigh for the technology that was ... Man I miss those days. So the real pride and joy was my "corporate camouflage" tower and it was one of the first commercially affordable towers (as opposed to the desktop cases) and would fit in right at home in any mid-to-late 90's cubicle farm.

The story is too old to be commented.
