At this moment, I am using an old NCR system 3230 running
DR-DOS and the Arachne DOS-based web browser to post this
message.  It was originally a '486 SX-25 based computer,
but I have fully expanded it to 8 MB and a DX-50 processor.

It is connected via an ISA ethernet card directly to my
router.  I know, not as impressive as connecting and posting
from a PC XT, but remarkably, the Arachne web browser will
run from an XT.  I think it's a shame that we, as a
society, throw away working computers just like this one
because they are deemed too obsolete.
