I know this information is available on the Net, however this appears to be the source(?)

I wonder if there is a later version than 1999?

TH99? Is that the same information that is browsable here?
http://www.uncreativelabs.de/th99/
Holy crap, they have an entry for my Columbia Data Products motherboard. Why didn't my Googling turn up that page?

Has anyone tried downloading this? The "Highspeed" download link is just an attempt to infect you with malware, and the standard download link is, so far, slower than dialup.

Maybe Google knew what they were doing after all.

You could try an ASCII-only version: http://www.uncreativelabs.de/th99/th99free.rar (found via the link provided by SomeGuy earlier in the thread)

It appears to contain the same info, is 4.9MB and downloads in a moment.

Yes, I concur! :smile:

Anyway, it's all here:

Is TH99 being updated or error corrected by anyone currently or in the recent past?

Arrrag! Thats the site with all the jumper and socket information I was specifically searching for the other day, but couldn't find. And it is the same info as these other sites. Well, since Google wants to be a bitch, this time I'm bookmarking it! (Yes, I still use bookmarks even though Chrome and Firefox devs seem to think nobody needs them)

Goes to show, there is plenty of room for a competing search engine.

And while I am at it, I miss their old usenet advanced search. It was a great resource being able to search for a specific keyword in specific date ranges (such as 1984 to 1986). I guess some of that info might still be in Groups, but that is bloated unusable garbage.

I actually have the ASCII version, but I thought this TH99full might have more information. Thanks to the VOGON's link, I'll know in a moment.

I can vouch for the RAR located here: http://maben.homeip.net/static/S100/JUMPERS/
It is legit.
Maybe we should compile a list of the URLs that are good and post it in Vintage Documentation/Online Manuals so they're easy to access?

I had no trouble downloading using the slow option. It uncompressed and I tried to use Acrobat Pro to create a PDF from the index.html file, however when it hit 4000 pages I hit stop! I'll take another look soon.

It's a mirror of http://th99.bl4ckb0x.de/ which has links both for the ASCII version (mentioned earlier) but also the full version as a rar. That version is exactly the same (size 167637585 bytes) as the one from maben.homeip.net which was mentioned before.

Anybody know the source of this info? I mean was it from a commercial source or was it the efforts of a kind soul? I would love to know how they made the circuit board drawings as updates could then be made. I know I have found errors, corrections, and missing info on my searches.

AFAIK, TH99 is unsupported now. It should be good if someone translate this to WIKI form allowing "community" editing....

Thanks for the info and linkage. I suspected as much. I have both the printed and CD version of the MicroHouse technical library and the diagrams were suspiciously similar, but I wasn't sure.

It would be nice if we could somehow continue it. A wiki with dip switches is easy but the graphics would be time consuming.

Yeah, this is my mirror. I found the archive years ago somewhere. As I wanted to have my own mirror, I've set this up.
