    Hi. You had mentioned a computer recycling shop around Hasting and Commercial several times in earlier postings. I'm in Van for a couple of weeks and unfortunately I left the address on my desktop, and haven't been able to find a listing in the phone-book. Could you give me the address or even the street intersection it's near ? Thank you.

    That's a cool profile picture! I don't have that many HDDs, probably only about 40 or 50 :/
    You inspire me to hoard more.

    neat profile picture, that you?
  7. Between $50 and $1000, really depends on how well advertised it was and the condition.

    How much do they go for?
  9. Yeah. It took me years to get one of my own.

Depotting an 80's MCU from Ford...for AMC

by NeXT on May 26th, 2019 at 04:10 PM
Mention fuel and emissions control to people who lived through the 70's and early 80's with a car and for some reason the music of CCR and the sound of helicopters start going through their heads as if the Malaise Era was as traumatic to them as Vietnam might of been.
Basically in that period the ability to run an engine loud and rich was being clamped down on to deal with smog and fuel shortages. Initially it was devices such as anemic carburetors, smog pumps, the Exhaust Gas Recirculation

ITT PowerSave 500 - UPS on an ISA card

by NeXT on March 31st, 2019 at 08:41 AM
This is actually a board that was on loan to me for the last week while I removed the batteries. It's a 230w rated UPS with a 15 minute reserve capacity that's designed to plug INSIDE YOUR PC and connects in parallel with your power supply. A little bit of software shuts the system down gracefully when it is engaged, however makes the system immune to accidental cord pulling or power switch flipping, which are probably the two last things you could do to idiot-proof a server.

Obtaining a Forgotten Login on an IBM System/36

by NeXT on May 12th, 2018 at 04:09 PM



This blog post comes from the issue where you may end up with a System/36 where just the administrator or all of the user accounts and passwords have been forgotten. This article has been created to help de-obfuscate an existing procedure posted about 15 years ago here on Usenet. The purpose of redoing this procedure is to be a bit friendlier on those folks

The sleeper three-button Logitech mouse

by NeXT on February 7th, 2018 at 05:50 PM
Now normally I spend a lot of time slagging ANYONE who dares use a keyboard with anything but their original machine and frankly the same should apply to mice as well, right?
Well yes there are a large number of notable examples of mice that really only worked with specific machines both electronically and asthetically. One example I can come up with is the Hawley mouse. It is absolutely revolting on terms of ergonomics but it just seems like the kind of thing the "hip" tech crowd

WiFi232's Evil Clone

by NeXT on January 19th, 2018 at 07:55 PM
I'll admit it. The idea of the Wifi232 is brilliant and everyone ate it up while someone made a small fortune.

The problem however is that it contains one of the worst things you can find in a hobbyist community: Greed.
As awesome as it is, Paul Rickards seems to of gone out of his way to make sure that while you can buy units from him pre-assembled ($50USD + $15 international shipping) or in simple kit form ($33USD + $15 international shipping), you cannot go out and just
