    What if I want a dual CPU system from a PIII on a single CPU mobo?

    What a creative solution for using old processor chips! Can I
    make a 128 bit CPU out of four old P3's I have lying around?
    Does it matter if they have different clock speeds? What about a
    256 bit graphics adapter?

    Could someone please provide DIY instructions for modifying a TRS-80 L2
    Basic to run x64? I have one laying around that still works. Any idea if
    Pong, WordStar, and VisiCalc will be ported to x64? What modifications will
    have to be made to the cassette drive?

    This begs the question, do two IBM PS/1's equal one PS/2?

  13. I have a 64bit cpu but only a 32bit windows, can i double my ram by
    modifying the processor to run in some kind of dual-core mode, each working
    at only 32bit? :D

    Only if you learn to attribute correctly. And why does everybody here top
    Larry Hodges, Feb 5, 2006
  15. Folks top post here because that appears to be the preferred style of those
    who spend the most time here. Given that it's one of those things that you
    will NEVER get folks to agree on, I don't pay much attention one way or

    What I find is that folks who spend a lot of time on a a newsgroup, and
    follow the threads, tend to be top posters. Since they've already read the
    threads earlier, but recently, they tend to prefer seeing what's new right
    at the top, rather than having to scroll down to it. It's also the case that
    OE (the most common NNTP reader on this newsgroup) defaults to top posting.

    And invisible top posting above. If you shine a black light on the screen,
    you will see the message.

    Bill, Feb 5, 2006
  17. What's wrong with you? I just tried to adjust, as you may have noticed this
    newsgroup is in den microsoft.* hirarchy and around here users tend to
    top-post. If you can't stand that, go find another group.

    I guess top posting is some sort of Network Sin.
    God forbid someone post in HTML you would have a real fit then.

    I could care less about top posting vs. bottom or inter posting. I adapt to
    the respective ng. But only a noob would fail to attribute. And since you
    have no idea what I'm talking about, attribute is to include the text to
    which you are responding. But carry on with looking stupid. It matters not
    to me how much of a noob you appear to be to everybody who reads your posts.

    Now, if YOU can't handle that, take a wambulance to another ng.

    That is simply quoting. Attributing is properly identifying the
    author of the quoted material.
