View Full Version : Really slow ...

September 12th, 2004, 06:28 PM
I haven't been around in a while, partially because I dreaded coming back and having to catch up on so many new messages. I guess that was wishful thinking - it looks like it's been really slow. What's going on? Just the normal summer slowdown?

That would be my guess (and hope.)

If that is the case then things should pick up soon. If not, I may have to do another advertising blast! :)

I get over here at least once a week. Sometimes more often. I CAN spend LOTS OF TIME on my "Vintage Computers". (Doing a file conversion on my C=128 as I type!) RLE

I'm trying to be more regular in my visits, but I just haven't had time time to work on my old machines. And man, I have a lot to do:

- Several hundred diskettes need to be examined, cataloged, and preserved. You never know when you are going to find useful device drivers on one.

- 10 or so hardware modifications to reverse engineer and understand.

- Hundreds of pages of paper docs to sort and preserve.

And this is all just PCjr stuff ... if I had more than one machine type, I'd never have hope of getting it done.

The weather is getting colder, posting should increase in a month or so.

I have alot of junk to backup from my server, and no motivation to do it.
