I had an 8088 machine too, but something else sticks in my mind.
Many ... many years ago, our office was putting together a group purchase of 486 motherboards. I was waffling on spending the money. That Sunday, the opening hymn was on page 486. That made up my mind! I was on a mission from GOD!!!
And besides $486 is cheaper unless you get pick and demand $80486 !!!
Footnote: There was a reason the boards were cheap... flaky DMA made the floppy drive useless. After putting up with non-sense for years I gave the POS away with the provision that it never be sold... which it was !!! The cows came home when the buyer complained to me about the board and I filled him in on the truth!!!
Been a little absent the past couple days, on Tuesday Mrs. Wife and I went to get induced. Well 22 hours later on 1/29 @ 12:46 am our first kid Emma Adalyn was born. 8lb 14oz (4.02kg), a lot bigger than anybody had expected considering the wife was only 3 days overdue. The wife is doing ok considering she had to be taken to surgery right after the baby made her appearance. She had to get a blood transfusion last night and I'm heading back there now.
Anyway, as soon as I get her typing, I'll get her coding. Reserve member 129201446 for her .
Welcome to the world, little 129201446, I hope it treats you well.
