Pedophilia much? She looks like a kid from middle school.

Congratz to the winners. I'm sure they will make use of the knowledge and information that is to learn from the book.

The HSF she's holding is from the Pentium !!! days, socket 370. I remember that time when I saw the HSF and thought that thing was humongous compared to the HSF used for socket 7. Comparing to the current HSF for Sandy Bridge, that one is quite puny, but it sure wasn't during its days. :D
And Congrats to the winners!

I don't see girls 18 to 20 years of age wearing overalls, eating candy, and being very thin, or at least not in the city...

If you look at the motherboard, it looks like 3 PCI and one ISA slot. Tells me this picture is very old.

It looks like the MoBo has a DB25 connection (looks like it, could be different), so yeah, definitely old.
 
[citation][nom]lp231[/nom]Does the book cover IRQs?Does today's techies even know what IRQ means and what it does?What IRQ is link to a sound card?[/citation]
I'm positive Scott Muellers earlier versions have IRQ's. I haven't read this one so I really have no ideal on his 20th edition. I know his 9~13th editions have IRQ for sound cards and much more if you can find a copy.

I have one from the early 90's that still covered IBM PS/2 machines.

As for the motherboard. It could be a AMD K6/pentium board from late 90's Notice it only has 1 USB port.

As for the girl. My friends daughter is 20 and looks like the girl.

Scott needs to add a revision to his books, lollipops and computer innards dont mix

as a side note, the last time something that pretty came that close to the insides of my PC resulted in a forced upgrade to my motherboard and RAM sticks......
