@jk amazing...we've come so far from those days when the enter key was nearly as big as a human hand!

@jk 10MB of flash storage -- such luxurious, very space

@jk I always wondered how that mouse type thing worked :o

@Mycroft it's really bad, the rest of the laptop is apparently built very well but the mouse is a bit wacky, it's just a conductive strip with a brush inside which uses the changing resistance to measure the distance of the mouse from the laptop. it wears out after just a few years, and also is shitty to use! i guess people that still own these prefer to just use MS-DOS anyway

@jk @Mycroft I have an ongoing thread in my emails right now about this (from the hplx mailing list.)

They'd re trying to figure out the best way to get it to not waste a bunch of ram space on windows shit.

@ajroach42 @Mycroft im thinking about getting one, replacing the screen with a modern high-res one, and ripping out the insides and putting a raspberry pi in it

@jk @Mycroft I think about doing something of this nature nearly every day.

Recently, I've been trying to figure out a way to make a raspberry pi 0 work inside of an HP 200 LX body (or something close enough.)

I like handhelds and full keyboards.

@jk first thought: yummy .. looks like one of these amazing chocolate creations. 🍫 Probably there was the wish father of the thought ... 😅

hmm... does this phrasing actually exist in English? ;P

(Da war wohl der Wunsch Vater des Gedankens. )

@jk Microsoft Windows built into ROM!

That's okay though because they got it right at version 3.0
