    Hah He made that observation in the car, with 2 former Intel employees in the back. And it was appreciated. :)

    When I got the picture of the VIN last week, I immediately thought "i586... Pentium?" and google'd it. And felt very lucky I got that VIN.

    Nah, it can do floating point math. Just not correctly. ;)

    I remember I had one of those processors. It was a 60mHz processor, and our replacement was a 90mHz processor, with a brand new heatsink also. I still have the 90mHz processor on my shelf somewhere.

    hah! I remember overclocking my 286 and adding a heat sink to it. PCConnection mail order, I think (PCConnection.com was not even a twinkle). Worked great for about 18 months. Then one day, just stopped. My 20MB Seagate double height 5 1/4 inch bay hard drive was starting to fail anyway. Oops, did I get off-thread? sorry .....
