Still Crazy

Author: Tatsuo "Sandy" Sunagawa (the creator of the PS/55 pages), edited by Major Tom.

Back in June 1996, I happened to get 3 models of PS/55. One was PS/55 5551-NAB, 486DX2/66 machine with 16 MB of RAM, 200 MB HD and Japanese Display Adapter /J. It run Win3.1J nicely. When I hit and touched each keys of a 5576-A01 keyboard and examined the each parts inside the box, evil species slowly but securely had been growing up deep inside of my body and brain. After some period of incubation, the virus developed and dragged me down to Micro Channel Addictive Disorder (MAD).

Now my 5551-NAB is just sitting on a shelf with AMD 5x86-133, 1G SCSI HD, Reply SVGA, Madge Smart Ringnode and specially burnt BIOS ROM for 160 MHz operation. I don't know how long I will keep MCA Virus within me. Anyway I'm still crazy with MCA... after all these years.

In this section, the article number indicates year-month-date (except for the ones numbered as 0x000x). Articles dated after 020819 will be placed at the top and old articles will go down. Articles dated before 020819 are not yet completed. These articles will be uploaded at random. I've been writing these articles collecting memories (and testing logs) scattered in my brain and hard disks. And for the former, a powerful defragmenting tool is needed.
