The watch is pretty cool :). Would have wanted numbers on it to mark the hours.

I saw a photo of that watch awhile back and always wanted to get one. I have a ebay search for it, not sure why this didn't show up on it. Anyway, I'd buy it, but that $40 bid price + $18 shipping (USD) is a bit much for me at this time. :(

I see it is listed again on ebay, now with a starting price of 10 CAD and the opportunity to make the seller an offer:

Hi

Today I found this "Industrial Machine" with OS/2 Warp (guess it is version 3).
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Industrial-Desktop-Computer-System-Rack-Mount-PC-with-IBM-OS-2/283448723054

But I have no idea what it is for   ;D ;D

It says:
Quote
Precision Technologies Inc.
Santa Clara CA.
LC-500AR
Lead Conditionning Machine

Wow !!!

I had to search what a "Die Punch" machine is, since I'm not good with industrial terms in English. I understand it is the industrial tool that can make different shapes of metal pieces, right?

I'm going to list this machine on the OS2World wiki under the industrial machinery. If someone has one of this at home, let me know  ;D ;D ;D

I'd say this one would make memorable internet terminal for some ones home ...

And make it so that it will randomly start punching those plates while one is Cruisin' the Internet!

Just in case I created this wiki page:
https://www.os2world.com/wiki/index.php/Precision_Technologies_LC-500AR_Die_Punch

Maybe on the future I can find out more about that machine, like a brochure, manual, etc. I will keep looking.

Ohh

It is the first time I see a "Software Choice" box. I guess it is in Japanese or Chinese, but I haven't even saw this one in English.
Nice clock/atom artwork !!

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-IBM-Software-Choice-for-OS-2-Warp-Server-Factory-Sealed/124099169096

Pictures of this box in English (if exists) are welcome.

It is in Japanese, Chinese would be in simplified Chinese characters only, this is a mix of Kanji (Traditional Chinese characters) , rōmaji and katakana, which are unique to Japanese.

Indeed, the Software Choice is in Japanese (and is for Warp Server Advanced Japanese Edition).

The Warp 4 Chinese is the Simplified Chinese Edition (i.e. for the mainland Chinese market). 

Fun fact, back when I had Passport Advantage in its final few years, it was supposedly for Warp 4 English.  For some reason, IBM put copies of not only MCP1/2 English on my account, but also gave me Japanese, French, German, and Simplified Chinese.  And, for some strange reason, ACP2 in German.

Japanese indeed! : ) - Would be a nice collectable. *__*
I definitely need more space to store all these... :>

Btw.. anybody know what THIS is?
Front:
Internal:

- Click

Question is also... due to the weird form "factor" of that CD.... is it safe to put that into a production drive? ; )

Those shaped CD-ROMs were "a thing" in the 90's, buy luckily not for long. Their compatibility with drives were limited to those that one pushed disc to the spindle (mostly portable ones). Some discs would have worked in normal ones if the design of the disc was made so it centered the disc correctly.

Business cards and whatnot shapes were around. Fortunately this madness didn't last long. Some bands released some music on these, but mostly just novelty items that were not meant for use :D

Looking at the leaflet one deducts it was some kind of software pack, no idea what ...

Code: [Select]
[ [url=http://"https://www.ebay.de/itm/IBM-OS2-Warp-Software-CD-/223927115577?nma=true&si=PRlRzORAaeWJ3GcGFeyR8qyOgDI%253D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557"]Click[/url] ]

Your hyperlink is invalid ... you can see there are extra stuff around the URL.

Correct one would be:

Code: [Select]
[url=https://www.ebay.de/itm/IBM-OS2-Warp-Software-CD-/223927115577?nma=true&si=PRlRzORAaeWJ3GcGFeyR8qyOgDI%253D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557"]Click[/url]

*gg* the [ ] around the Click me link were intentional. Usually I do these as they should "simulate" a button.

Mhm.. okay.. so better only try these CDs in an normal CD/DVD drive. : ]

Business card CD's are still a thing

http://www.cdr-business-cards.co.uk/

They will survive a high speed drive unlike some of the more interesting shapes did, not to mention thin walled DVD-RW's that exploded if you tried to write to them at high speeds
