Is this personal project anything like trying to be a modern day Tom Sawyer ? 

You need to do something but trying to get everyone else to do the work ?  And you want it free ?

All of a sudden I have gone from possibly telling you where you can get anything like that - to telling you to find it yourself or abandon the project.



The OP has done work. Re-read posts 24 & 25 for instance.


Jeez, lighten up. Were you being asked for a kidney or something? Anyway, no one is forcing you to help.

This is quite simply one of the strangest threads, ever.

Call Electronic Discount.  They have a sort of museum in the store - I have seen a 10KB IBM hard drive there the size of a washing machine.

That is funny.


I remember in 1979-1980 I was in the 4th year of primary school.


My teacher Mr HoneyJones was chatting to use about computers and their speeds and all that etc.....


He then said that it will take x time to process y information.


Lets say 10 minutes.


He then said this computer, (in a picture) that looked about the size of a car, if it wanted to do the calculations faster in a matter of seconds, a computer the size of a sky-scrapper would be needed.


How wrong was he huh.
