I'm Nostalgia Nerd... I have an addiction to Nostalgia & things often categorised as "nerdy". I talk about software, hardware, games, toys, programs, magazines and other things from the 70s, 80s and 90s, sometimes with a liberal amount of dry humour. The channel's main focus is computer related items from the 80s & 90s. Feel free to visit my website, other social accounts listed below.

Atari Jaguar Story | Nostalgia Nerd

The Atari Jaguar. The world's first 64 bit games console. Do the Math. This is how the Atari Jaguar was sold, and I for one, loved it. Launched initially in 1993 in North America, and then the rest of the world in 1994, the Jaguar was a machine which seemed to skip an entire generation of games consoles. Whilst everyone else was playing around with their 16 bits or even 32 bits, Atari smashed it out of the park with 64. Many claimed that it wasn't a true 64 bit console, but with a 64 bit data bus, it really...

Mystery eBay PC hides SURPRISE | Nostalgia Nerd

Mystery eBay boxes. They're a thing. Well how about a mystery eBay beige PC BOX? Now, that's what I'm talking about. This is a 1990s IBM PC Compatible, I purchased from eBay for £56. It contains an AMD K5 Processor, 64MB of RAM, Trident video card and many, many delights on its 270MB HDD. In fact, some of these delights are probably best left hidden, if you catch my drift.

Using a 56k Modem in 2017! | Nostalgia Nerd

Remember the warming sounds of internet dial-up? Trying to get through to your internet provider, without an engaged tone. Trying to get a decent connection speed. Downloading GIFS, GIFS, GIFS.

Why Were Pentium 2's on Cards? [Byte Size] | Nostalgia Nerd

With the Pentium II, Intel designed a CPU and cache which remained closely integrated, but were mounted on a printed circuit board, called a Single-Edged Contact Cartridge (SECC). In this episode of Byte size, I discuss the reasons behind this switch and also go into details on cache operations in the Pentium Pro, Xeon and Celeron processors, and how they differed from the Pentium II model. ☟Subcribe☟ https://www.youtube.com/user/nostalgianerdvideos?sub_confirmation=1 ✊Support Me! ✊ Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/nostalgianerd?ty=h Visit my eBay Shop: http://ebay.to/1QQpYyy Buy From Amazon (affiliate): http://amzn.to/1OzCQWR ★Nerd Social★ Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/nostalnerd Face: http://www.facebook.com/nostalnerd Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/nostalgianerd Web: http://www.nostalgianerd.com ★Equipment★ Nikon D3200 with 40mm Macro Corel Video Studio Ultimate X7 Corel Paint Shop Pro X6 Blue Snowball Microphone ♜Resources♜ Pentium 2 images courtesy of...

TDL- Do not DE-LID an AMD FX9590 CPU! (Already dead CPU)

Teardown Lab - Do not DE-LID an AMD FX9590 CPU! (Already dead CPU) Says it all in the title, DO NOT REMOVE THE LID ON AN AMD CPU, especially a £200 octacore one! Luckily this was already faulty and had been really unreliable for a long time. For the easily bored jump to 14:00 ish! I really would not advise anyone to bother trying to remove the lid or heatspreader on a modern CPU. This bad boy spent 18 months running at over temperature, the silicon was fused to the lid by that point and would never come of cleanly. Amazon has working versions...

Amstrad CPC Story | Nostalgia Nerd

The Amstrad CPC Story begins way back in 1947, with the birth of Alan Michael Sugar. We then meander through Alan Sugar's early working career, the start of his trading business, AMS Trading, and then the formation of Amstrad. From there, between stereos and CB radios we land with the fabulous Amstrad CPC464 in 1984. A machine often cast aside as an "also ran", but in reality, anything but. Selling some 2 million machines, it comes in third place behind the Sinclair Spectrum and Commodore 64, but dominated in parts of Europe. So, let us delve in to the Amstrad...

The Hard Drive, in it's IBM PC Compatible format has been with us since, what? 1980? Data in the early days was encoded using MFM, which was updated to RLL, but in that time, other things also changed. Like what Low Level Formatting actually meant. Because originally Low Level Format actually meant writing the sector boundaries to your disk. IDE hard drives rarely let you do this, and doing so may have actually damaged your...
