    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.

Mastervoice ECU (The Butler in a Box Tries again)

by NeXT on October 14th, 2017 at 01:32 PM

Two years ago I made another blog entry discussing the Mastervoice Butler in a Box.
As a refresher this was a late 80's product that gave you X10 home automation in a small box with speech recognition and speech synthesis. Overall it looked great on the outside but on the inside it had a number of questionable

AT&T Personal Terminal 510A

by NeXT on October 28th, 2016 at 06:32 PM
Here we go. Another case of Mysterious Hardware from the 80's.
So in the early 80's while AT&T was cranking out Unix PC's and PC6300 clones one of the neglected corners of their R&D lab decided to build a terminal for the home or the office desk. Obviously they ended up never being a commercially viable product and after a few years of poor sales they were withdrawn and have pretty much vanished from existance. It seems all that remains now are a few scant magazine articles that google

Bringing the Model 33 to the 21st Century - Part 10

by NeXT on July 1st, 2016 at 12:40 PM
****CLICK HERE FOR PART 9****

Finally after almost two and a half years of work, 32 lines of code and 12 pages of diagrams it was finished. The first CCU for a model 33 designed exclusively to control a Hayes Smartmodem hidden away inside the stand while looking completely original, being completely modular AND bridging the gap from the early telecommunicating days to the modern era was completed.

Bringing the Model 33 to the 21st Century - Part 9

by NeXT on July 1st, 2016 at 12:31 PM
****CLICK HERE FOR PART 8****

In the meantime a fellow from out east gave me a shout. He knew that my teletype was using a wooden stand I built myself. By chance he had just bought a basketcase model 33 that he was about to trade away for a better one but the new owner didnít want the stand. A small fee was agreed on and a week later I finally had a proper stand for my teletype. It was grubby and rusty but Iím not complaining and it looked a lot better after it was given a cleaning.

Bringing the Model 33 to the 21st Century - Part 8

****CLICK HERE FOR PART 7****

Now is the point where bugs began to come out of the woodwork.
Once the Pro Mini was programmed I began playing with sending commands to the modem using the buttons exclusively. The first issue was that single presses would repeatedly fire off commands, resulting in erratic behaviour and unreliable operation. The assumption was that the switches were inducing a level of keybounce and the micro read each instance as me pressing the button. Initially
