The New Website and Its Coloring *RANT*

by Capt. 2110 on March 12th, 2016 at 11:44 AM
Am I the only person here that actually kind of likes the green and black? It's probably related to the fact that it's the color of my first synthesizer, but that's not my point. I don't really see why everybody hates the new site. It's like the change between Windows 2.0 and 3.0, since almost everything underneath is the same. And the older one was starting to look a little tired(the old color scheme, while not bad by any stretch, is one I've seen on totally abandoned forums, the ones that haven't

Happy Back To The Future Day!

by Capt. 2110 on October 21st, 2015 at 12:04 PM
Little piece of odd video format I picked up a while back.

DOS Version(According to MS-DOS Mobile 1.0):

It's called a CED, or a Capacitance Electronic Disc. Invented in the 1960s, it had so many delays during release, it didn't get out until 1981, at which point it was already obsolete. It works kind of like a record combined with a VHS tape. And yes to both the $5 price tag and the Sega Game Gear in the back

TI-99/4A Testing: Part 0

by Capt. 2110 on October 6th, 2015 at 09:23 AM
This is the first of many posts covering my adventures with my new TI-99/4A. I got this for $5 from my favorite electronics store, EPO(Electronic Parts Outlet). It didn't come with any cables or accessories, but I found I could make my own AV Cable, and I could take it apart and apply power from an ATX PSU. I used a broken keyboard cable and a broken audio cable for the AV cable. I'm not sure if it will work yet, since I can't test it. I haven't taken the unit apart yet, but it should work. If it

What defines "vintage", and why running DOS on a netbook is fun!

by Capt. 2110 on August 5th, 2015 at 11:09 AM
I've always wondered what "vintage" really is. I've done tons of research
and finally found an answer! It turns out that it's not a real time frame,
but most people consider it to be from around the 1950s to the 1990s,
though some people extend that until the early-2000s. However, vintage
really refers to ANY time period. You can even have a 2013 vintage. It would
be lame, but it got me thinking. If something from only a couple of years ago

Vintage Mutimeter

by Capt. 2110 on July 20th, 2015 at 04:10 PM
Told you I would post it soon. I got this multimeter at an estate sale for $3 IIRC. Here are some photos.
The front. You can see the options on the front.

The inside. It looks to be home made. You can see the 1971 Eveready in the bottom left.
I'm not sure who made it, but they did a good job.
