    I'm not sure where you are getting this from. S-Video defines the connector, pin assignments for luma and modulated chroma, and implicitly attaches a modulation scheme to the chroma signal defined...

    A lot of MCA cards (8514/A & XGAx) only support extended resolutions and work with the on-board display adapter to support the lower standard modes.. So which device is actually generating the...

    The scaling problem wrt CRTs vs LCD is just silly. CRTs have a native resolution in phosphor dpi. CRTs are still scaling - just the pitch of the dots provides a low pass filter over the whole...

    Much quicker. People will argue, but I always generously use SMT 291 syringe flux on board. Basically I'll pre-tin all the pads for all RLC passives. Then use a knife tip to heat both pads and...

    I do a lot of SMT work and I've pretty much settled on a small 45 degree knife tip for just about everything I do. It's pretty easy to use the knife edge to heat both ends of 0201 through 1210 at...

    I actually do have a prototype upgrade CPU complex for the T5KMC. It came from a seller in Denton, TX which is at least geographically correct. It is clocked at 25 MHz which is a good step up from...

    The two working ones are buried in storage atm. I have to pick and chose which projects get moved to active work areas. I have another NIB. And probably 2.5x more in spare parts. 2 CM-1s (1 NIB)...

    That is tricky too. There really wasn't a standard per se - or at least few companies got it right or were willing to attempt a functional copy. The PC had been out for 2 years but the T2K...

    It's a very broken machine. More than half the software written for the 5150 by 1985 would not run on a 2000. A number of public reports back that up including my own experiences with my 4 2Ks,...

    It's a bit silly to compare a 2000 to a 5150. The former is very broken when it comes to PC compatibility and isn't an ISA machine. It's technically not even BIOS compatible as it differed in many...

    You could always buffer it until an idle back-stop timer hits causing a flush. Keep it short like on the order of tens of milliseconds. That way you don't rewrite the same data more frequently than...

    Incidentally a 4.77 MHz PCjr JR-IDE with Mike and Jeff's BIOS runs about 330 KB/s raw rate and about 300 KB/s in terms of file payload at the OS level. With my new optimized routines, it's over 400...

    Yeah, rare != valuable.

    I usually skip right over these sorts of auctions when the seller starts with a completely unreasonable fishing price.

    You can "Report Item"s at the bottom of the page as potentially fraudulent. It would cost the $20 purchase price to send it from Hong Kong.

    There are 16-paired up traces going to the left-side of the left connector prior to the break in the trace pattern. Then 11 oddly routed traces on the right side. That matches an IDE pattern.

    IDE disk cache would make sense too. There seems to be an unnecessarily large trace count going to the higher pin-numbers of the left 40-pin though for IDE. The 40 pin header would make sense for...

    I don't know why this disqualifies it as an accelerator. There are 40-pin headers which could easily come down to a DIP socket adapter to replace the 8088. The rest of the system, including the ISA...
