Having a clear out of my father’s house before he moves, and coming across a lot of old tech—or, old by my standards. This is the stuff I learnt from.

Every few months my Dad would send off for another clipart CD and a USB hub.

When there was no Wikipedia.

Really pleased to have found this, so that I can use floppy disks with my laptop.

My sister and I spend hours trying to get this microphone to work, and I don’t recall ever succeeding.

My MS-DOS rescue disk for unbootable systems.

Not sure how old this is considered to be.


Now that’s a WiFi adapter.
