    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.

  9. Yeah. It took me years to get one of my own.

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

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

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.
