    The PCjr does very much have a ROM for the character generator. It's basically the same as a CGA card, but with some more graphics modes, circuitry for sharing the memory with the main system, and...

    I looked at wired cameras using power over Ethernet and "smart" cameras that transmit on WiFi but use wired power. I went with Nest cameras, which generally have the features I want. Their cloud...

    I'm still confused by the original post in this thread. It's not even plausible based on the timeline.

    Nothing adds up:


    I have owned an original 6Mhz IBM AT for 30 years. I've never seen "AT Multiuser System" anywhere before I read this post.

    Or a low spec PC running an older version of Linux ... that is more than capable of serving as a Token Ring-Ethernet gateway.

    I've stuffed a pretty full featured FTP server and an HTTP server onto a 4.77Mhz machine. And they both support concurrent users.

    Portability is only an issue if you want to run it on multiple platforms. So, what platform do you want to run the server on?

    Sure you can! A vast legion of IBMers did it for many years - IBM development sites had Token ring as late as the early 2000s before we finally moved to Ethernet.

    Don't bother with the "not Ethernet" networking cards - they will just be consuming space and power, and also generating heat. There is no reasonably useful networking software for any of them.

    Like I said, there is a big difference. In one scenario the data leaves the premises and changes hands, and it is impossible to prevent it spreading after that. Google's data doesn't ever leave the...

    VCF West is a virtual event this year, so while we'll miss seeing people and machines in person, it is a lot easier for remote people to participate and see what is going on.

    Nice work! I need to recreate this - I just want a simple DOS program so that I can read the EEPROM from a good, known working device before it goes bad too.

    And I think your idea about patching...

    I've had this happen to me recently too. I have the Xircom on the shelf for a later repair.

    The short story is that there is a serial EPROM on the board that has failed. It holds the MAC...

    I'm interested in the PLIPBox too. I think it can be turned into a decent replacement for the Xircom adapters.

    That looks like a highly automated factory to me, so there were probably not a lot of people employed there. I doubt that working there was glamorous.

    That use case is covered, but it falls under the "don't hand out overlapping addresses" rule. As long as you don't violate that rule everything is fine.

    As predicted, I've never seen this happen.
