I finally broke down and bought an HP C5180 all-in-one printer/scanner/copier dealie. It’s a sweet little device, I must admit. Very Linux-friendly, comes network-ready, and now all of our computers at home can scan and print via network, out of the box.
So, said new scanner has enabled me to pull some of my geekly receipts of yesteryear and scan them in, thereby throwing the gauntlet down for this year’s “You Can’t Be Geekier Than Me” competition. As one item of proof, I offer this receipt from 1996, wherein yours truly laid down $279.07 for a state of the art, Megahertz 28.8 PCMCIA modem. Also of note is a receipt from January, 1996 with $138.03 for 1×32 72pin module for a whopping 4 megs of RAM! And then there’s the receipt with $588.50 for a 486dx33 with 4MB of RAM, a ginormous 100MB hard drive, and a 640×480 VGA monitor.
Come on. Let’s see what you’ve got. I dare ya. =;)
