    It doesn't appear that the PCB has a conformal coating. That's a huge no-no in devices designed to operate outdoors in weather.

    I still use the stuff in critical areas, along steps and walkways. When I replaced the incandescent fixtures with LED ones (still 12VAC), things got significantly brighter. I use G6.35 bi-pin...

    Maybe in your neck of the woods, but here, for sizes under 4", it's black ABS. The foamed ABS is particularly nice to work with as it weighs very little. Exempli gratia



    Obviously, you didn't...

    Says one whose body mass measurement is in the metric ideal unit, stone. And let's not ignore the threading of the tripod mount on my Japanese-made camera: 1/4" BSW. We all deal with the...

    That's not good; are you using, or can you install a DOS mode ASPI driver for your card? If so, I can pass along a couple of generic SCSI tape utilities that will at least make sure that your drive...

    Well, ABS isn't a simple substance--it's a polymer consisting of three things: acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene. Proportions of each can vary wildly, depending on manufacture and application. ...

    There's an easy, rulerless way to tell. Grab an DIP IC out of your stash (28 or 40 pin ones are easiest to handle). Make sure that the pins are straight. Hold the pins on the DIP next to your...

    It sounds like some of the older HP Delta PSUs that I have with the 3-pin fan speed cable.

    Just trying to think locally. I have several tape measures and rulers and I don't think any of them has a metric scale.

    I rely on my mics calipers for that.

    If you can't find it, look at the spacing across 11 pins (pin to pin) should be about 1 inch. 6 pins should be about 1/2 inch.

    (25.4 mm = 1 inch).

    HP Colorado backup works fine in Win98--just tried it. Works with Sony DDS drives.

    I see a lot of tapes done with this particular package.

    Okay, I'll dig through my stuff and see what's suitable.

    I've got a bunch--does it have to be Win98? Will Win2K, Linux or XP work also?

    Meh, I've got a bunch of DDS drives, all external. I grabbed an SDT-5000 to try, as it's a plain 50-pin interface. Win98SE says I need a driver for it. XP sees it without comment, but XP backup...

    If you'd like, I can dig my SDT9000 out from the pile and give it a go with Win98SE (I don't have any systems currently loaded with the first edition of Win98--too many issues) and an Adaptec 2940. ...

    The SDT9000 should be recognized as a generic SCSI tape drive by Win98.

    It should--I've got an SDT9000 and I don't recall any problems under Win98SE (or Win2k).

    You did read this didn't you?

    There are a few Teac FD-55Bxxx drives on eBay. It depends on how much you'd like to pay.

    The really insane $$$ prices for the FD-505 combo drives has my head spinning. I still have most of a...

    Read the line below the "WD1772PH". If it reads "02 02", you stand a good chance of getting the chip to work at 16MHz, though it will probably run hot. (early 80s CMOS wasn't that fast). Not all...

    When handling large data structures, I find that it's convenient to reduce offsets to <32K; you avoid boundary issues with little additional overhead.
