Why are jumpers a thing? It seems like there would be a more effective way of doing the things that they are used for.
I think the last jumper I used was the last IDE HDD I used. That was at least only a single jumper to deal with.
Anyone else remember the days of 486 boards and the masses of jumpers to set all the board settings instead of having everything set in the BIOS?
486, you youngin'. :P
I was messing with computers all the way back to the 80-86 days, just didn't have one at home till the 486 era.
The first computer I purchased (at age 13) was an 8086. though I think 286 or 386's were out at the time.
