About the Author

1617113056629I’m Jasmine from Ballarat in regional Victoria, Australia. Since 2020, I have been professionally diagnosed with having autism, ADHD, persistent depressive disorder, sleep apnoea, and undertaking hormone replacement therapy as a transgender woman.

My interest in all things computing started back around 1992, though wasn’t until around 1994 that I received my first PC, a 286 XT.

This website, Socket 3 was named after the motherboards and associated processors that were common for the period. Socket 3 was the type of socket to insert a 486 processor into the motherboard using 237 pins.
