Nice. An original ISA Soundblaster. Should've been in a museum.

Heh, those are deffinitely .22 holes :D

And no I dont think they'll work any more... and I agree that Sound Blaster shoulda been saved. Creative had some great hardware back in the day... I have a whole stash of Soundblaster 16 ISA cards that no one wanted any more. They still work perfectly 99% of the time, they just dont have any hardware 3d support or anything like that :p

EDIT: BTW, you should see some of the stuff I have laying around... a .44 Magnum really tears through a dead hard drive... and you havent lived until you've blasted a dead PSU with a shotgun at a range of about 15 feet... they really fly :D

That looks a lot more like an SB16 than an original Soundblaster, and it's a relatively new one based on the color coded plugs and the fact that it's so tiny.

Thats true... all the soundblaster 16 cards I have are at least 8 inches long... some are about a foot. Now THATS old :p

Yep you guys are right that's a 16bit card. Not an original SB. Ah well it's cannon fodder anyway. :D

Now here's an original:

I feel so deprived... the last time I had a problem with my 486DX4-100 Linux server, the best (worst?) I could do was take a hatchet to it, repeatedly. That felt sooooo satisfyingly good. Tell you one thing, pulling system board splinters out of your bloody hands is no fun. (I really got into it! Those PCI slots are tough especially on those multi-layer boards!)

I can only imagine how much fun a shotgun would be! I've had my share of uncooperative power supplies in my day!
