166 MHz of bling.

I got bored the other day when I was done swapping my computer into my new case. my “IT drawer” was open, so I decided to rifle through it for whatever reason. there were a bunch of processors kicking around in one corner, and an old Pentium 1 processor caught my eye. I thoguht to myself “hmm… that would make an interesting keychain.” So I dremeled off all the pins on the back and sanded them flush, then I “enhanced the pin marker” with a power drill. I have no excuse for this….

I think it’s marginally clever/unique and it was a fun way to waste about 5 minutes. It’s a good conversation piece too. just thought I’d bookmark yet another milestone in my mental degradation. I’m way too easily amused. 166 MHz of bling indeed.

    That is a sweet idea. I might consider stealing that idea 🙂

    I got a bunch of 486es and 386es laying around somewhere back in my nerd days before I transformed into a car nut.

    And that bling gauge icon is hawt.
