Computer progress...

Just a few shots to show how computers have changed a little over the years.
In the background is a shot of the Dell Precision I use every day, it has a 15 inch screen, with great resolution (1920 by 1200 I think).
Sitting in front of it is a Jornada 728 that I picked up on Ebay a couple of weeks ago. It is displaying the HPCFactor website in glorious 640 by 240 resolution on the Opera browser!!!
When I got the Jornada, the stylus was MIA. Rather than buy a replacement, in all its plasticky glory, I made a replacement from Aluminum, Brass and Copper tubing (all available at the hardware store). The tip is made from a small piece of acrylic that I "coned" and polished. It fits perfectly.
