Nope, that's correct. Pagers are still a thing in many parts of the world, as there are a few usage cases where they're the right tool for the job. Think along the lines of emergency fire/rescue departments where volunteers need to be called up to attend an incident, stuff like that.A pager. Apparently, you can't text back with a pager. Only receive a message and respond by calling somebody. Correct me if I'm wrong.
True ... the Falcon is a beast, but they're ridiculously expensive. At least Atari STs are still relatively cheap, especially in Europe.Atari Falcon 030, almost definitely.
edit: looked on ebay, it's a bit pricey.
for 8/16 bit pcs, Mister. FPGA based emulation. Jack of all trades. Tons of fucking cores for PCs, 8/16 bit consoles, and 80s arcade games. Some cores even have faster clock speeds (ZX Spectrum come to mind. 56 mhz! the original clock speed was 3mhz btw).
You can get a kit for building your own Altair 8800 clone. Can't get more vintage than an Altair 8800.
Good luck getting most files to fit. Punch cards barely held more than a few kilobytes of data.IBM computers from the 60's with the spinny tape drives and punch card shufflers and panels with blinking lights and chunky switches and line printers that can churn out pages at ludicrous speed. I'd store all my secret files on it because it would be super funny if ever the police showed up with a warrant for my computer equipment. Good luck XD
Ah, pagers. Yeah, if you had a pager, you'd have a number for it. Whenever someone dialed your pagers number, they could enter the phone number that they wanted you to call them back on. When someone called your pager's number, it would beep or vibrate and the number they entered would appear on the pager's tiny screen. There was pager etiquette too, for instance, if someone entered (911) that meant to call them back immediately because they had something important to say. As useless as a pager was to a person who wasn't a doctor, businessman, or drug dealer, it was actually considered "cool" for teenagers to wear pagers back then and they were desireable to young people even with their virtual uselessness for anyone who doesn't receive lots of important business calls all day. Who's trying to call a teenager where the call is so important that they need to be made aware no matter what. Back then, you'd just tell your parents where you were going to be and give them a phone number they could reach you on there. Shows you how much things have changed. Oh, and young people used to call them "beepers". I remember my oldest brother had a "beeper" and he and his friends would meet girls at the mall and give them their beeper numbers lolol. I remember as a youth thinking wouldn't it be easier just to give them your home phone number, but maybe they had the right idea. That way, you'd know they were trying to contact you, so you could call back when they paged, that way when they called your mother wouldn't answer the phone, possibly causing unintentional embarrassment or something.A pager. Apparently, you can't text back with a pager. Only receive a message and respond by calling somebody. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Fat PS2 are the best. At least the later models (3900X and 5000X). 3900X are the last models to have the i.link port while 5000X remove it in favor of an IR port for DVD remotes. You can run games off the internal HDD if you add one. You'll need the network adapter for that. There are 3rd party adapters that have SATA instead of IDE, but they don'y include the network adapter. Its easy enough to mod the SATA connector into the OEM one. The earlier units have a lot of build quality issues. Stay away from the 3000X series. Disc drive issues.
