Their were many races back then :) ,if we raced you must of started from a long way back as I think you heavily out gunned me,I doubt I would of let you have an easy ride ;)

I started off with a Celeron 366@550 on a Soyo 6BA+III (which IIRC you had one too ,last I heard my old mbrd was still going in a friend of a friends PC last year!).That mbrd latter run a PIII 650@820 before I used it for my sons PC (it then latter gained a Cel Tualatin 1.1A@1.4GHz)
I still have the Celeron 366 in an old PC around a friends house!

God! ,I can't believe I've been doing SETI for so long!:Q

Hi Mark,

Yep, I had a Soyo 6BA+III in one of my crunchers. I had the leaky caps, got it fixed for free while I waited. The oriental shop ower had a bag of caps as this was not a new problem for him. The board lasted a few more years and more caps leaked and I trashed it as the warranty was up. Seems like I had a Celly 600@900 in that one.

Glad to see you seem to be doing well!

Regards,

John
