486 Microprocessor Keychain

486 Microprocessor Keychain

Ok, while browsing the local thrift stores for hackable electronics, I ran across this little guy in the keyring tray for 29 cents. :jawdrop:  I couldn’t pass this up. I remember all the good times I had with our first x86 computer… (It was a 386 12/24 Mhz, which was upgraded to a 486/DX2 66Mhz soon after). 

The keyring is an Intel 486 Processor mounted in a plastic keychain casing.

Also, see the front side of the keychain.

Hershey Factory!

Hershey Factory!

I stopped in at the Hershey Factory in Smiths Falls recently. It’s slated to close sometime this fall! :cry:

I saw the sign, and couldn’t resist it’s strange cuteness. :shrug:

I would have gone for the tour, but the factory was having its planned outage for maintenance that day. Go figure.
