Greetings from the future! I am still using my Vivatron 1776 continuously and without trouble. I hope you went with it in that build!

I went with Viewsonic. Had some trouble with colors flickering to
pink or blue hues too. It's been recycled.
Please re-post this, and my reply, around 1994. Then I'll get the Gateway.

Not possible. Everyone knows that September 1991 will never end. :p

That famous thread where Linus announces Linux? It's been vandalized way
too many times, idiots seeing a timeline at google and realizing they can
deface a historic thread. So they post, and each one doing it acts like
they are the first ones to think of it. It happened the first time google
created the bug that allowed replies to posts older than 30 days, and I
know I complained then, and the bug was fixed. But another iteration of
the "googles group" interface and the bug was back, and it's been there
for a long time now. People vandalize the famous threads, and they reply
to other threads when they have no reason to do so. Either start a new
thread, or don't bother. They are clueless and have no idea what usenet
is, so they think it's a "webforum", and thus blindly do damage to usenet.
And a lot of the time, they don't quote the message they are replying to
so what they are saying isn't often obvious, and they can't even reply
properly, so it looks like some idiot is starting a nonsense thread like
this, except they are replying to a post from 1996, when the post was
topical, and he got what was probably enough replies, and useful too.

Google has done damage to usenet.
