New Year, Old Stuff

New year, new stuff.

Nope. I am broke this year, my new year is filled with old stuff. Chinese likes to say, "old stuff don't go, new one won't come" 旧的不去 新的不来. So I was doing housekeeping in my "gadget store room" during this 2-week long leave. It's also a preparation for a mega change soon or later, at the same time may be it can attract some potential buyers to look for some old stuff, so here comes the Jacko's Mega Sale!

Let's start with this...


Some old gadgets still in their good package. My all time favorite, the Nokia 8850 that cost me a bomb in my saving that time...


The SE T610...


HP Mini...


My first PDA, a Compaq 3970...


My first GPS device which is still in use...


Yeah. 2 of them (actually 3). One for my bro and one for cousin, the other for myself.

The MP3/4 player in brand new (never use) condition...


The mini speaker, brand new never use...


And a long serving cordless headphone that I used during nighttime...


Phew~ Let's take a break now. Let me move out another big treasure box and see what I have inside...


It was once upon a time that Jacko became a paparazzi and here's some tools I needed when spying...



The voice recorder and a mini phone.

Now move on to PC stuff...



The 1st gen of PS2 Microsoft mouse and keyboard and HP USB keyboard at the back.

Do you still use this?


I have a full box of diskettes...


Some remote controllers...


I started to build my HTPC decade ago. Unfortunately, it wasn't a really successful one 'cause the concept wasn't common yet at that time, many items (hardware and software) were not mass-commercialized to end users. I haven't given up, Phase 2 is in progress, part of the Mega Project. ;)

Now the DDR5 RAM...



LoL. Nay, don't be fooled by me. Hehe... they are SD RAM, the big player before DDR. I have 19 sticks. Unless something goes wrong when they idle in the storeroom, all of them should still be working from my last test before I kept them into the store with proper silica gels.

There are also some Solaris RAM (what RAM module is that?)...


Some backup tapes...



5 DDS2 and 10 brand new unused Ultrium 1 200GB tapes. Normal home PC users wouldn't see such things as these tapes aren't cheap. Ultrium 1 cost RM450 per cartridge in the past if I remember correctly. Why I have all these? I forgot. Hehe... I guess I got them from some vendor functions, or I asked the vendors to give me some test units in my past job, or from my bro.

Same goes to this pointer cap...


I guess this was from my bro. Let's replace one on my work lappy...


You want one?

Now the cordless headphone partner, a long serving speaker for me to jam some songs during daytime...


The Creative's 4 point surround speakers.

Move on to network stuff. First thing is the stone age 56kbps Tundercom dial up modem...


Is the company still exist? This oldie still working well though.

A D-Link hub when network switch was still expensive for home consumers...


I remember I bought it during the "peak time" at home that I had 2 PC and 2 lappies. It's also part of my investment for my Cisco career advancement beside the big router below...


The Cisco 2500 series router. I used this for my self learning on Cisco networking.

Gosh! There is another box in the store! Let's see...


The old PC powered by AMD K62 450MHz CPU! It's still operational! My test machine for Microsoft certification when VMWare and Virtual PC were still new to me.

Also some other old items...




The surge protector, multi-charger, SIM card backup and the soldering tool. Yeah, I repaired some PC stuff using that.

Lastly, some in-use items in the same box...



My Wind, Linksys WAG54G2 wireless router and Archos AV500 DVR.

Anything caught your eyes? If so, what are you waiting for??? It's Mega Sale time!!! For old stuff?! Hehe...
