    Or just “load”-ed one. I mean, yeah, you have BASIC, use it.

    I don't know myself how *common* it really is for the RRIOTs specifically to fail, but they seem to have a reputation. (The older Commodore disk drives for the PET used them and they're listed as a...

    Maybe a little off-topic, but sometimes I use a really trash method to allow my Tandy 1000 to telnet into my Apple Macbook: I installed "socat" with Homebrew and when I want to telnet in I run this...

    People should start including sockets for these on XTIDE cards. They're easy-peasy to tack onto things like that.

    It's been a long time since Windows Server was even remotely my bag, but if I had to hazard a guess the Windows 2000 telnet server is probably trying to use kerberos or NTLM instead of password...

    Doh. Of course, right after I post I thought of an optimization:



    GAL16V8 ; Divide by three test
    DIVTHREE ;

  7. Question for the GAL Gurus: Most efficient Divide by three?

    I'm still sort of a newb at this whole "programmable logic" thing, so I have this strong feeling I'm probably missing a really obvious and cool way to accomplish a thing. So here's a question for the...

    No comment on what a KIM-1 is actually “worth” as a collector’s item, but offhandedly I will observe that it might not be the best ancient computer to actually try to use recreationally today. My...

    I was going to suggest Eadweard Muybridge’s work as a possible candidate, but his rigs used the Collodion process.

    Also, I suspect that dedicating a whole camera for each burst frame is stretching...

    I think the reason that's there is to ensure signal integrity of those signals across a cable. I don't bother buffering those on my homebrew cards, but the assumption with those has always been that...

    The common GALs (16/20/22V8/10s) were specifically designed to be fairly universal replacements for a good selection of earlier PAL devices, at least electrically. (I don't think you can just flash...

    The MTCP package's telnet program is for telnetting *out*, not in.

    I'd definitely agree with not worrying about the drives yet and concentrate on getting the computer itself breathing; you're not going to be able to meaningfully do anything else without video output.

    I'm around 90% sure that one appeared in 80 Microcomputing at some point... it's odd that a Google isn't turning one right up, but I'd be willing to bet a nickel, well, maybe even a dime, that...

    The PCjr's tech manual says it's compatible with 2716 or 2732 EPROMs. I'm sure the PCjr folk probably know where the BIN for it is, although I imagine you might be able to find it in a MAME ROM...

    I think the primary value here would be during the repair process, not as a permanent matter.

    I'm pretty sure that page that claims it's a multiplexer is wrong. Pretty sure that there was a recent thread about that same chip going bad; said thread was kind of catastrophic to follow because...

    According to the schematic that chip you're pointing to is the character ROM, not a multiplexer. (Does the PCB have chip positions silkscreened under the sockets? That looks like position ZM64, which...

    It's funny, I looked up the datasheet for the SMSC USB floppy ASIC mentioned earlier and it's almost exactly the guts of that ancient drive stuffed into one chip; an 8051-microcontroller core with...

    $40 seems a little steep for a composite adapter, I think you should be able to DIY it with just a few resistors and maybe either a couple diodes or an XOR chip. I'll have to refresh my memory on...

    There are plenty of "garbage" low-level flux devices like the Kryoflux or Greaseweazel, but I'm pretty sure Chuck is right that nobody's currently making a "block-device" level device that lets you...

    I sold off a box of ISA cards that'd been in my garage forever a few years ago, I think I may have let a non-PnP IDE-port Soundblaster go in that lot. Oh well.

    The idea of just cabling the mess...

    Well, yeah, that's the point. There's no reason to go crazy trying to make one the ULTIMATE 286, particularly when a simple 8-bit XT-CF will already be a massive upgrade.

    Are there any good photos...

    But does it matter? So far as I'm aware the AT can't meaningfully overlay another task with a sector transfer operation using standard IDE PIO so if the total bandwidth "X" is achieved, well, do we...

    The SST flash chip is also a candidate for permanent mounting, the Lo-Tech cards use it and the flash utility works fine. (If a tad less convenient since it's a separate step outside the xub conf...
