ITT: Technology they took from us

thank god they did, that always needed cleaning and kept getting stuck

Thank god this legacy barely functioning shit is dead.

Stop falling into memes, they always sucked and old ≠ better.
If you really want a good fucking example of good shit they took from us, look at Windows XP and compare it to the mess that is Windows 10.

>>80338457
IDE cables can connect two drives to one cable. To address the two devices you need to tell the computer which device is 1 (master) and which one is 2 (slave)
This only matters for the BIOS, once you boot an OS its irrelevant

For parallel SCSI, it was determine the device ID of the drive. (Device ID #0 was reserved for the SCSI controller)
For parallel SATA, it determine if the device was master, slave or cable select. In some cases, you can forced FAT16 compatibility in the day (Mainly for MS-DOS/Windows 95) at time with 4-8GiB HDDs.

Doubling your storage was a lot easier back in the day.

Small operating systems. I get that in order to have ever increasing storage space they had to go from 8, to 16, to 32 and then 64 bit; but there's a certain charm to having your entire OS on a single floppy.

Sounds ass backwards, but a tractor that doesn't require an authorized dealer to maintenance. Sounds like an /o/ complaint until you read into it. Hacks from eastern Europe are required to fix or PM new JD equipment if you want to do it without paying an arm and a leg. John Deere has basically become Apple and has their customers at gun point. They even refuse to publish schematics or repair/maintenance instructions and restrict who can buy OEM parts.

That's why farmers are so in favor of right to repair.
>>
>>80340526
and yet even in right to repair strongholds JD, Apple, ect. get away with it. This type of scenario is the ultimate thing they can and do take away from us:
The product we poses. As these products age, slowly(sometimes quickly), little by little(or a lot), they take away from us what we have by law purchased.

Literally lasted forever, it's demise came only when my stupid ass threw it in the bin after I bought a shitty Logitech laser mouse as a replacement. Now that piece of shit lasted literally a few months after the double click shitfest began.

>>80338903
The ball used to pick up sweat, dirt, dead skin - anything on your desk really and roll it into the mouse where it would collect on the two rollers and form a brown/grey waxy shell over time. You had to remove it with a cotton bud, pen lid, paperclip or whatever was to hand or your mouse would drag and you'd have an inaccurate cursor.

Probably the only element of retro computing I don't miss. It was fine at home but working in an office with 4 smokers was grim.

in germany you can only use TUV approved parts, so its probably not legal for use hence unregistered.
in bong you can stick a wobbler engine in a twingo if you really want to, you just have to tell the DVLA that it has a different engine. if you change a car significantly (i.e. a fiero ferrari) you'd register that as a kit car.

Introducing Read only Random Access Vinyl, or as I've come to call it RRAV.

For it to be random access you would need a way to start and stop the platter, and a way to see where to place down the needle again, whether automatically or manually. Or maybe each sector is recorded with a tone at the beginning, so once you put it down near the correct sector it will ignore any incoming data till it reaches that tone and start reading it into the computer. Then stop again with the tone at the end.

Or each address is printed on the record from 0x00 to FFFF. You'd want to try to keep your data all in sequence, but if you had something in one address Not near the other, you would have the turntable stop. The terminal would read out what address it wants, then you move the head to the beginning of that address, press enter, it stops again wanting to go back to the other address you began with, you put the head there, and then you press return and it finishes loading.

Or you make the disk clear, and instead of printing the addresses on it, you have a matrix of LEDs underneath the record. Wherever it wants you to place the needle it will light up that area.

Yeah, but they also get pretty dirty and, thus, gritty /grindy.
I used a Logitech Trackman Marble for several years, and I had to clean it once per week, and stopped using it altogether when the suspension nubs worn and made the ball grindy. Lubricating the nubs (I used gun oil) sort of help, but not by much.
I also owned a CST L-Trac. That thing was a beast, the ball was the same size and weight as a pool ball, it took a while for my hand to get used to it, but damned that it was comfy, and the scroll roller pin and separate middle button were a nice touch. You could also select the sensitivity (it had plenty of it, much more than the Logitech Trackman).
Sadly it crapped out after a couple of years of use. Maybe I got a lemon. It's a shame that CST is no more, although other company make the L-Trac but smaller.
I'm using a Corsair M55 RGB mouse (IR laser), it nice and all, but I really miss using a trackball. They one I have in mind is the Kensington Slimblade. They are rather expensive since they are kinda of a niche product. I liked the Logitech one, but I had to use AutoHotkey to emulate the scroll wheel function. I don't like those hybrid mice with trackball, because they have the ball on the left side, meant for right hand thumb, but I'm southpaw.
Do any of you here have experience with the Kensington trackballs?

The ABS plastic that those old hardware pieces (PC cases, monitors, mice, printers, speakers, keyboards, etc) got yellow, then beige because of the exposure to UV rays form the sunlight. Sure, people smoked indoors, and oftentimes rested their lit cigarette on the keyboard, or PC case, leaving burn marks. People also did that a lot on arcade machines, with cigarette burn marks on the corners and buttons.

>>80355542
The yellowing is usually attributed to the fire retardant used in the plastics which was hastened by exposure to UV, iirc. But it pretty much always happened over enough time even if the device wasn't exposed directly to high amounts of UV. Still though, plastics for devices usually came from the factory as a beige color.

as someone with a fair understanding of aerospace technology im just going to say that the concorde and a whole shitload of other technology were literally never viable and its unfortunate that people lament their death as a commercial technology but they were never meant to be. you will never make a fuel efficient, quiet, supersonic transport. the laws of physics are not on your side. just like you will never make a lightweight, fuel efficient space shuttle. the boomers got fed a lie hook-line-and-sinker that they would be able to smooth over the problems with the concorde 'within the next 10 years of aerospace technology' and they used it for almost 50 years straight before realizing that the advancement that would turn the business venture profitable was never going to happen.

the world was obsessed with 'supersonic transports' for the decades contemporary with their obsession with 're-usable spacecraft' and both of them are basically impossible engineering feats that everyone assumed that we would just be able to overcome with technological advancements 'just over the horizon' that have yet to materialize almost seventy five years later. otherwise they were just throwing increasingly more money at an increasingly expensive and unprofitable pony project

people still have the fucking audacity to blame someone completely unrelated to the project for canceling it instead of accepting the reality of the situation and accepting that the Brittish Aircraft Corporation and Aerospatiale had unreasonable expectations for the project and left it going to so long they had no choice but the cancel it after everyone had gotten used to it and assumed it was legitimately profitable

I agree supersonic aircraft are a dumb idea because it's a very complex problem to solve just to have someone get from A to B faster. We already are fast enough with commercial aircraft and the internet can solve the rest, ie. you don't need to get to Japan in 3 hours if you can just fucking videocall someone. It would be cool if going faster was possible, but as you said it's just not feasible and it's a huge waste of resources and I imagine you need to make everything much higher quality than a standard airplane.
Re-usable spacecraft will be a reality for some years but I don't trust them being used for human transport, sounds like riding a ticking bomb. Sounds OK for supply runs.

the reason the US military didn't mass produce the xb-70 wasn't because it was not a mature technology or because it wasn't production ready. there were very clearly outlined economic and technical issues military leadership were not confident in the plane being able to overcome which is why it took them 20 more years to finally purchase supersonic strategic bombers.

if a entity as wasteful as the US military was not willing to purchase and use an aircraft basically identical to the concorde in design and performance then it makes you wonder how and why commercial british airlines were

>Re-usable spacecraft will be a reality for some years but I don't trust them being used for human transport, sounds like riding a ticking bomb. Sounds OK for supply runs.

we are just now only barely scratching the surface of the materials science and engineering required to accomplish this task in 2021 and we were trying to do it in 1955. the original design of the space shuttle had like hundreds of them being fired off into space and being re-used per WEEK

in reality we had to re-tile every single space shuttle that made it back inside the atmosphere because we never had the materials science to actually manufacture re-usable heat tiles and for the entire life of the project we had the fucking audacity to call the space shuttle re-usable

stop blaming entities for problems you clearly don't even understand, especially when im specifically talking about the failures of decision making that led to those problems. you are trying to blame nasa for problems that nasa didn't even create

the reason the space shuttle was terrible was because the air force and the military refused to allow the project to happen without a bunch of conditionals that basically destroyed the viability of the project before it ever entered production

if it was as small as nasa originally wanted it to be and didn't have a cargo bay as originally designed, it probably would have been perfectly acceptable as a re-usable shuttle to and from the space station. the problem is that it turned from a space shuttle to a space big-rig and they dangled the ISS in front of people's noses to justify funding the project. the russians built mir and the americans built skylab without reusable spacecraft. you don't need a shuttle to build a station and yet, that was how they secured funding for the shuttle in congress

nasa has shitty propaganda and always has shitty propaganda because they are forced into it by the military and don't like doing it
