A moment's silence for my faithful Gateway 500 LS
« on: May 20, 2021, 06:27:51 am »
After many long years of service, my main SFC gaming computer, a P3 Gateway 500 LS, has decided to no longer function, locking up 10 seconds into POST, halfway through drive verification. I've tinkered with it to no avail. 

It's been the hub of many LAN games and campaigns, over the years. Its been used to create countless new models and mission scripts and was expanded to its maximum design potential. I also used to use it for ECAD & CAD work originally.

If I can't fix it, hopefully it has chalked up enough brownie points, in St. Clive's "User's Manual of Life" for its soul to admitted to Silicon Heaven (As Kryten the Red Dwarf Robot believes).
The Klingons have many ways to fry a cat. I prefer to use an L7 Fast Battlecruiser!!

May St. Vidicon of Cathode aid in its resurrection.

I believe truth and principle do matter. If you have to sacrifice them to get the results you want, then the results aren't worth it.
