RE: Showcase Sunday: Museum of living computers - Inspirations from the past

in #bloglast year

Somebody once told me that computers don't really break (after I broke the server). We just don't have any more use for them once we have newer and faster ones.

Sort:  
 last year 

I think if they are kept dry and relatively dust and spider free they should do pretty well :)

Once they go to the basements, attics, or garages dust and spiders are unavoidable. At least spiders get to have fun with them. Probably that's why the internet is called the world wide web.

Computers eventually break but they can last a really long time. Capacitors going bad is probably one of the biggest problems with older computers. However, they can be replaced...
