    There are screwdrivers with specially-treated tips. I think that they serve the same purpose.

    After I picked up my battery-powered ratchet, working on my truck got to be a lot simpler. I have...

    There are times that I would be lost without my trusty HP16C. I've gone through a grand total of 3 sets of batteries since I purchased it back in the 1980s. I have replaced the LCD display after...

    Ah, so "Goldfinger" getting sucked out of a jet is just nonsense? I thought as much, though I did have a thing for the young Honor Blackman...

    One thing that's made a huge difference in my...

    I don't trust the low-profile ones; I'm running a 3GHz Prescott and those buggers get hot fast.

    That Molex one is interesting , but it clearly takes a different mounting bracket. I did grab the...

    Kind of regretted not keeping that one, but other than the one I'm using, I have no other 478 boards. I'm predominantly AMD nowadays. Which reminds me--the footprint of a socket AM2 heatsink is...

    If it's not much trouble, I like to improve on replacements. Stainless instead of zinc-plated fasteners, etc.

    Stainless is a lot cheaper than it used to be--and will never rust or corrode.

    Do you want to see a photo of the broken Intel heatsink parts? The only alternative is to puchase a new one--which will probably also break. As the ranks of available parts thin out, it's going to...

    It would seem that the Picaxe could manipulate CTS/RTS to throttle the input to whatever you wanted.

    Rebadging old chips has gotten to be an art in the far East. Rather than repainting the top, it's simply easier to abrade the markings and then apply the fake ones. The surface looks new...

    Probably a brass insert--that's good. Get out your tap set and thread all the rest to agree then get some matching screws. With the shades drawn and the lights out, nobody will ever notice... :)

    It's materials choice that is so often short sighted. I used to own a Volvo 940 turbo-brick. Great car; good mileage and lots of room, particularly if you put the rear seats down. It had two...

    I read the article, but it gives no indication of what you're using for your serial interface.

    While waiting for the Dell unit, I've taken some stainless steel wire and sheet brass and bodged a couple of brackets onto the old fan assembly. Held down to the retention bracket with zip ties. ...

    If you have more CPU and memory than bandwidth, you could also get fancy and take a cue from the video compression people--just transmit the "differences" if the content of adjacent frames is...

    Let me guess--you bought it on eBay. :)

    Probably a relabeled 8086. Timings should be substantially different. You can always go into DEBUG and try some V30-specific instructions to verify,...

    PS/2 drives do have a "disk changed" signal. Clearly it's not making its way to the planar.

    One might put the shoe on the other foot and ask why computer manufacturers persisted so long in mixing SAE and metric fasteners in the same box. Vaguely reminiscent of my made-in-Canada Ford...

    Etched both sides at the same time. Double-sided and multilayer boards were tricky before CAD. Registration was a nightmare--get one side a little off and your vias don't connect--or worse, they...

    Not quite--the diode is there to prevent the PC from attempting to charge a primary (i.e. lithium coin cell) battery when the PC is on. Very bad when that happens with lithium ion batteries.

    Well, that's why DHCP hangs. Maybe Mike B. can help on this one, but it sounds like an interrupt problem to me.

    So forget DHCP for the moment. If you don't start DHCP (just start the packet driver), can you ping out to a known IP address? If not, then DHCP isn't going to work either.

    Does the ST01 even need an IRQ under DOS? Seagate's dox say no.

    If you don't use DHCP, can you still ping using naked IP addresses? I had to move my packet interrupt to 0x64; 0x60 didn't work...

    Doesn't TCC have an inline assembly feature (sorry, I'm a MSC user)? It should be possible to include this in your code and automatically handle the model size issue. The code's pretty much a rep...

    Easy--it was merely to demonstrate how display data can be sent over a printer port--and what to expect. (not a lot).

    RPi notwithstanding.

    I opted for the big Dell heat-pipe passive unit. If it gets too warm, I can add a fan. I've got room--it's a 4U case.

    In the meanwhile, I'll bodge the stock Intel one with a couple of cable...
