=== Compy 386 on e-mail menu ===
 
-
When this e-mail ([[virus]]) was posted to Homestarrunner.com, the Compy 386 was still used for the e-mail menu and appeared to be working fine.
 
-
 
-
*'''Modify'''. It could bear noting that the email menu hadn't been changed yet, but as it's written, it's a tad confusing. --[[User:TheNintenGenius|TheNintenGenius]] 14:06, 21 Nov 2004 (MST)
 
-
*<s>'''Hold until tomorrow'''. This one is meaningless until the new e-mail comes out, or at least until a full week has gone by. They may be trying to keep the fate of the Compy secret until everyone gets a chance to see the new e-mail. --[[User:Jay|Jay]] 14:41, 21 Nov 2004 (MST)</s>
 
-
**Good point. Now it's tomorrow and the fate of the Compy is somewhat established, but because it's not associated with any other e-mail it may as well be noted here, but with a link to a page with the transcript of the new e-mail menu scene. - [[User:furrykef|[[User:furrykef|furrykef]] ([[User_talk:furrykef|Talk at me]])]] 07:41, 22 Nov 2004 (MST)
 
-
**'''Delete''' (or at least modify to refer to the new e-mail main page) --[[User:Jay|Jay]] 12:16, 22 Nov 2004 (MST)
 
-
*'''Keep'''.  Worth noting, and not too bad as is. --[[User:Paliosun|Paliosun]] 16:53, 21 Nov 2004 (MST)
 
-
*<s>'''Decline''' because it's a little obvious (changing the menu would spoil the surprise) and the fun fact page is already cluttered. - [[User:furrykef|[[User:furrykef|furrykef]] ([[User_talk:furrykef|Talk at me]])]] 18:06, 21 Nov 2004 (MST)</s>

*'''Delete'''. &rarr;''<small><tt>[[User:FireBird|FireBird]]</tt></small>''
 
-
*'''Decline.''' Not fun. {{User:Rainer/sig}}
 
-
*'''Move.''' It's not something I have time or expertise to do right now, but what about creating pages on the menus themselves? This has more to do with the menu than the email. --[[User:oddtodd|oddtodd]] 00:45, 1 Dec 2004 (MST)
 
-
*'''Rewrite''' This one is good, just add on to the end that there was a new menu created for the next week, and that after [[animal]] was out for a while, the lappy 486 menu was issued. --[[User:TheRealZajac|The Real Zajac]] 22:30, 4 Dec 2004 (PST)
 
-
*'''Decline''' That'd ruin the surprise if they did that.  --[[User:Cleve Ben|Clever Ben]]
 
-
*'''Comment.''' This vote appears very confusing, but it looks like a "decline" to me, as half of the votes are decline (meaning that nothing else could get a majority). Nevertheless, I've decided to leave it until a definite voting system is established --[[User:MadEwokHerd|MadEwokHerd]] 17:12, 30 Dec 2004 (MST)

'''VERDICT:''' After several weeks of voting, the item was Declined.  Moved to [[Talk:Compy 386]] --[[User:TheEggman|TheEggman]] 20:44, 19 Feb 2005 (MST)

== Screenshot: NOT from [[fingers]]! ==
 
-
 
-
The side view doesn't come from fingers. I just watched it, and yes, it does have ''a'' side view of the Compy, but he still has the fake fingers during the scene. That screenshot doesn't have the fake fingers and is zoomed out a little. Can somebody find out where it's from? And also once we find out we should change the fun fact on the fingers page that claims that is the only time we see a side view of the Compy.

==Centered Pic==
 
-
I don't like the centered picture. It moves the text down. I want it to go back to the way it was. Anyone else agree/disagree? -- [[User:Joshua|Joshua]] 16:46, 24 Apr 2005 (UTC)

'''Agree'''. Just what I was thinking, Josh. ---[[User:mihoshi|mihoshi]] 13:19, 20 Jul 2005 (UTC)

==Not a dell Quietkey keyboard==
 
-
The Dell Quietkey keyboard contains windows keys, while the keyboard in the screenshot is missing them.--[[User:Dwedit|Dwedit]] 22:32, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)

== Mouse ==

I belive that Compys mouse is '''''on''''' The keybord! I mean, my old DOS computer has it. --[[User:81.230.154.89|81.230.154.89]] 19:53, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)

== Programs ==
 
-
 
-
When I started the Programs section here and on the other 2 computers' pages, I envisioned it as being only programs actually ON the computer. Though [[The Virus]] was not intentionally installed, it squeaks in there.
 
-
 
-
I considered adding:
 
-
 
-
*'''[[Fishing Challenge '91]]''' ([[lures & jigs]])
 
-
 
-
but that is as likely as not a floppy disk game. Same with SB playing Peasant's Quest etc. Should disk-run games go here, or as sideline mentions in [[Floppy Disk Container]], or elsewhere? [[User:Qermaq|Qermaq]] 03:11, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

Could Compy be a play on Compaq, a popular computer company? Or is it just a play on computer? --{{User:Super Martyo Brother/sig}} 00:47, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

== Glitch with the knobs? ==
 
-
 
-
Although Strong Bad and The Cheat's face turn blue when the screen goes blue, (The Cheat was at the computer in [[cheatday]],) Homestars ([[50 emails]] and [[anything]]) and Strong Sads ([[big white face]]) do not go blue. Why?
 
-
 
-
== The Real Deal. ==
 
-
 
-
I think the Compy looks like an AT&T PC 6300 or the Acorm BBC Monster Compact.--[[User:67.161.122.193|67.161.122.193]] 05:04, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

I just realized that the Compy has a wireless keyboard! (see beginning of [[mile]], non-PBTC segment) -Alex H.

-
== Goof ==
 
-
 
-
Hasn't anyone noticed that when it says '''a> strongbad_email.exe''' the "_" overlaps the "e", maybe we should make a Goofs section for this. - [[User:The Pony man|The Pony man]] 19:18, 27 March 2008 (UTC) P.S. It's on every Compy 386 email and has never been fixed.

== Keyboard ==
 
-
 
-
The keyboard in the screenshot from puppet time clearly says Packard Bell. Most likely this keyboard is a rebranded IBM model M keyboard of late 80's vintage.

== Compy blows Strong Bad's face up ==

When does this happen? Or does it even happen with the Compy? I remember one of the computers blew up Strong Bad's face and sent him flying into the next room...no I'm NOT talking about SBCG4AP! --[[User:Pretztailfan95|Pretztailfan95]] 02:46, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
