easiest overclocks (well aside from the bios stuff from the pentium II on up) was the jumpers on the 486. just pick 25,33 or 40, then select the multiplier via jumper and see if it booted. cant remember if my 386 could do that. before that there was the clock crystal replacement on the IBM AT. never tried it on mine though.

Those AMD 5x86 chips could be OC'd massively on 486 boards (socket 3 IIRC) like you said set jumpers and watch a 120mhx become 160 with no issues on a stock cooler! AFA crystals, yup easy as well, pop out a 33mhz and throw in a 40 crystal on most 386 chips and you were out to the races again on stock sinks and then upgrading to a Cyrix 486 with a L2 cache bump was a great upgrade on the same 386 Mobo! I remeber using evergreen socket adapters to run 386sx chips on 286 mobo's and I think the last 8088 4.77mh upgrade was a 8mh (Damn I can't remember the name anymore).

yup had a amd 5x86dx4, 160mhz 24/7. that and my voodoo card and glquake. play for days, sleep for days. repeat.allowed me to skip the 1st pentiums, went right to PII celeron 300 with no cache those puppies overclocked like there was no tomorrow. then a PII 450 to P3 coppermine. gets blurry after that as to what i ran.

voodoo one cards. my brother in law had one. when i saw it in glquake against whatever card i had at the time my jaw just dropped and my drool puddled on the floor. i bought one the next day heh. one of the single most "holy shit" advances ever, soundblaster with real wav files was second. with games that did adaptive MIDI soundtracks (wing commander II), well who needs sleep anyway.

still have an 8086 (8088?) with a six pack, herc and ega card (a paradise card that could hit some vga modes), original soundbaster with build in 4 watt amp and the volume dial. gotta dig out the acoustic coupled modem. of course i should of saved a phone with the old style hand piece too. no phone i currently have would fit its cups lol.

best part of that 8088/8086 XT clone? that HUGE red paddle switch for power. nothing like it. when you flipped that switch that solid "thunk" was music to the ears. and the 10 megabyte hard drives that took minutes to spin down.

LOL, in 2019, I'm talking about the highest price of the year, so far and I hope to see it higher in December. Cool
The 'yearly high'.

I've seen others saying 'ATH' when they mean 'the yearly high'. But it's wrong/confusing.

Yes let's keep on creeping up... Cool

Typical behavior for someone who probably bought at $20k sold at $12k and is now hoping BTC will stay at $3-4k for a longer period of time. His bags are probably empty or almost empty and he's been saving on food and clothes to buy some tiny fractions of BTC. In a desperate attempt to prevent BTC from rising he is beartrolling spreading fud here on BTCtalk trying to confuse noobs and persuade them not to buy immediately. Let go dude, BTC is heading north and it's a one way journey... BTC gave you a wonderful chance to buy it for cheap at $3k but not for long we have to move on now. You're late, you're too late...      

My first purchase at BTC was with a price of $ 3,100. I never sold a fraction of BTC and I'm Hodl forever, until FuckYourMoney arrives or everything goes to hell. Cheesy

You're wrong.

Hmm. Vegan breakfast.
The dog looks a little sad.
Lots of fiber though.

That was back in the era when In-Q-Tel crashed the market on purpose and bought up all the coins for cheap.  Might be a govt wallet.  Who the fuck else neither diversifies or spends a cent after getting a windfall profit?

15 years must have passed since my last visit to Tokyo.
Bad luck, the Emperor of Japan abdicated just a few days ago and his successor has given 10 days of holiday to the people... and like me who has found a few closed places today, many of them are not happy about it.

Anyway, after starting my day with a good breakfast and an hour in the gym, it was time for me to revisit Tokyo.

Egg whites, potatoes, melon, pumpkin soup, pasta, juices...

First stop was once again a Bic Camera, but a much bigger one than I saw yesterday. This one is located at the Shinjuku train station.
It has many  floors and they sell everything : alcohol, food, computers, phone accessories, kitchen supplies...





The only problem is the Bitcoin logo is much more discrete this time. You only see it at the cashier or on a few signs in the store whereas yesterday you could see it clearly at the entrance.



I didn't spend any BTC there but from what I hear there's not many people using this service. The transaction is done off chain and you can use any wallet you want.

My second stop was just across the street, another department store called "Yamada Labi".





It's a bit smaller than Bic Camera but they basically sell the same stuff.

Third stop was supposed to be a money exchange I had heard about, called Samurai exchange. Their website says you can exchange international money for yens and then yens for BTC. Unfortunately they don't offer that service anymore.
They redirected me to another place called Sakura exchange who it turns out also stopped offering Bitcoin exchange.
That's a shame because I had a few bills I wanted to get rid of.
Those two exchanges are located in the same area, in Shinjuku, near this cinema :

After walking quite a bit already, I needed to rest... and to eat.
So I went to a sushi bar to have... vegetarian sushis (I know "what a waste" but I'm vegetarian so...)
They tried to trick me with one sushi that had wasabi in it but it didn't work. I actually ordered more.  Tongue

Back to business and changing areas. I took the train to go to Roppongi, a place full of night clubs, nice cars (I saw a lot of Ferraris and Corvettes but failed to react quickly enough to take any good pictures) and a few places that accept Bitcoin.






That's how I stumbled on a pharmacy where you can pay in BTC via Bitflyer, a local exchange :

There was also these two places, not sure I should talk about them but they're actually here to prove what a bad influence Mr. Ver has had on this city. They're located in the same street.
Notice how the logo is still orange instead of green.
The first one is a pizzeria called "The Two Dogs Taproom"(closed). How smart of them to put the logo on the wrong side of the window. They're probably ashamed.






The second one is a Mexican restaurant named "Amenro La Fiesta"(also closed). Again they seem confused.

Oh and I know you've seen this pic a hundred times already but hey it was there so...




Overall it was a good day even though I was disappointed to find so many closed places because of the holiday.
I kind of knew what to expect. Tokyo is supposed to have something like 4000 retailers that accept BTC, at least that's what is advertised. But of course, that is not the case.
Supposedly there should be 2 ATMs in the city but I'm pretty certain they're not there anymore (though they're listed on coinatmradar).
Anyway that's it for today. Sorry if those pics took a lot of space here.

Oh btw, what's on tv again tonight ? Arf, I'll be in bed (soon now) , I'll watch it some other day.

True, but most of the Japanese food (i.e. the Miso soup) isn't vegetarian.  Angry
