Wither PCPer ?

https://www.pcper.co...ing-new-journey
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

I have never heard PC Perspective before but it is sad that after 19 years, the guy has to leave the project.

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

I'd never heard of it either. Sad.

That AMD K7 "Thunderbird" that he mentions in that article was one rockin' and rollin' processor back in the day. I still have two working ones out in my shop... and a K7 mobo, also. I'll make a project out of it one day. ;)

My oldest AMD now is a K8 - Athlon64 X2 4600+ CPU. Still runs well for playing music or streaming Spotify. If I recall correctly I have 6GB DDR2 in it and an old 325GB HDD.

That's nuts. I have a pentium 3 at work that I play pinball on sometimes. That is literally the only reason that it stays powered on. It's an old NEC laptop and it works beautifully running windows 95.

The Athlon 64 X2 machine was the very first one I got to run Linux exclusively. It never has run anything else. I remember I got it around the time Bruno was building a Core 2 Quad machine. Mine was far less powerful but it did well for me considering it was replacing an old Pentium III 866.
