There is much excitement flying around the infosphere at the moment about certain individuals accelerating currently available technology to it's absolute limits using super-cooling techniques. While we at TotL Labs are seldom accused of following trends in modern computing, we felt that we could make a significant contribution to this effort. However instead of forcing "state of the art" equipment towards the 1GHz barrier which has so far eluded even the most determined accelernauts and overclockers, TotL has decided to attempt to recreate the performance of a modern PC using some old junk (kipple) found lying around in junk shops.
Our plan was to prove how undervalued "old" computer components really are.
Our conclusions were far more frightening than we could ever have imagined.
