Most older systems only like 32M 72pin simms or smaller (especialy 486 systems).

30 Pin memory came in 256K,1M,2M (rare),4M,8M (not too common) and 16M

Windows 3.0 was the last to run on a 286 correctly I think. IE explorer most likely needs 386 protected mode to work (386 or better)

I think you left out the soundblaster pro 2.0 model (8 bit in stereo). The soundblaster 16 does not emulate this card 100% and many old games miss out on features if the sound card is not 100% pro compatible. Also the Ensoniq Soundscape series was supported in many old games and sounds excellant. I ...

About ant-birth contol and anti-abortion: The catholic religion states that you shouldnt have sex before marrage, and sex is to be used to procreate, not for pleasure.

The national government has to pay for defense, roads, schools, emergency aid, social security, disability, medicair, law enforcement, jails, etc.. the church doesn't have to pay for anything besides expenses on running their corperation.

I don't think the church hoards money, but it does buy/own a hell of alot of land and businesses (which they pay no taxes on at all) that make up most of its net worth. Its the largest property holder in the world I think. http://www.time.com/time/archive/preview/0,10987,250016,00.html $7,500,000,00...

The Pope meant alot to at least a few of the Billion Roman Catholics, so I can see the big deal they made about his passing. I like how he just stayed in his room and waited for the inevitable with dignity, most people would be in the hopsital making an expensive fuss on the way out. I don't see the...

I don't care if people smoke or do other harmfull things to their body as long as society doesn't have to pay to fix them up because of their smoking, and as long as they don't do it by me. Smoking and its diseases should not be covered by any insurance or state/federal medical aid. Go home and hack...

Tseng Et-6000 based video cards (PCI) are VESA 2 compliant and very fast. The PCI version of the Nvidia Riva128 has VESA 3 in bios and is also very fast in DOS.

Earlier DOS games like Tseng et-4000 based ISA/VLB cards the most

The final result is nobody will give a dam about hockey anymore (the fans anyw...
