In my case the eTower is just donor parts since I couldn't find a compete eMonster, just the faceplate. But those stickers are for sure pure 90's cheese 'This computer is never obsolete!'. So I had to recreate them in vectors so I could reproduce them.seasons wrote:This was my first computer that I ever bought. It brought me so much happiness and so much frustration.
I could never bring myself to pull the labels off the front, so I think I just left them on here exactly like this for like 3 years or however long I had it until it bit the dust. It looked just like the one on the right in in this picture. Also, I had an external iomega (?) zipdrive sitting on top of the thing. I was never able to do anything with it besides type papers, download music on Napster and surf the web, but I'm sure it was the computer I had when I first found AMVs and that I probably tried to see how I could use it to get started editing myself (nothing came of this and I'd go through two more PCs before this would finally work out).
This is such a weird blast from the past.
When I retired it, it just didn't seem important, I had an Athlon XP to replace it. An Athlon 64. An i5 2500K and so on. I'm not even sure WHEN I discarded it but it happened somewhere there. Meanwhile, what I learned on that machine, that's what has me working on major AAA movies, including a Marvel movie at the moment, so I wanted to rebuild it with modern internals while having all of it's external components still operate.
