    Yeah, a lot of the stuff there was PC (IBM's and clones) related stuff, so it hasn't been of interest to me either... If there was non-PC stuff, I didn't see much of it really, and it's for the best...

    So i noticed that the freedompop sprint stuff is going away (moved to Ting) so I went through and cancelled those.. While I was there, i noticed my account with the international GSM was also going...

    Hahaha, yeah, i have an xt-ide card i've been building... I'm stuck waiting for those dang resistor array's to come from china, i didn't have those. That wasn't really much cheaper and it definitely...

    Btw, watched Adrians video where he showed off the jrIDE card... definitely looks worth it. Very impressed.

    That's true, but there's been cases where I've been able to assemble my one offs for quite a bit less than buying an assembled one. Obviously depends where you're buying parts. A recent example for...

    I think we all have experienced the 'how much is this thing? oh, its listed for $150 on ebay, so let me price it for $150 on CL because I don't understand ebay and don't want to pay fees.. More...

    Have you thought about moving? :)

    But no, I totally get it.. I've mentioned this to friends in the hobby as well that the per hour price isn't worth it... I like to build it for myself, but I...

    Makes sense. I only care about the MFM one because I'd like to use my original ST hard drive hardware vs using something like an ultrasatan.. but I guess using the original hardware isn't worth...

    Those are handy, I know a few people who've purchased that and swear by it. I was super lazy and just bought new (or maybe NOS, who really knows) dallas chips, but eventually I'll break down and go...

    Well, I think technically glitch is doing some of that with some of his stuff.. improving on others designs. I'm not sure the 'china reproduction' houses are actually improving anything, but...

    So where do you stand on compilations then? For instance, say I decide to make a retropie image with tons of retro software included. Maybe i've spent a hundred hours cleaning up duplicates and...

    Yup, I don't disagree with this either. I only question the part where one's "reproduced" the old item and then someone has "reproduced" the new reproduction and if we have a right to get angry that...

    Yeah, I think that was more my point. None of this is black and white really, it's just all shades of grey. If some Chinese company is reproducing your work, but you're reproducing someone elses...

    So similar to what NeXT was saying, there's one that I'm curious on. What if the original product isn't made anymore, does that open the door for others to make the product even if it's not open...

    I'm not sure that matters. If you're buying it from eBay (Which, honestly, is where you're buying something cheap), you're probably not thinking it's the creators product that you're buying cheaper...

    Sears branded Commodore products.. I'm sure there's nothing even remotely resembling gold in those two devices. :)

    I'm actually curious what is coming out that's a cheap chinese knockoff? Seems like every vintage retro thing I'm looking for, i find myself thinking 'gee, i sure wish that the chinese would mass...

    The only thing i have to add is that depending on your pricing, these are pretty common cables to buy so might not be worth the effort. A quick search on eBay shows 5 pin c64 video cables for as low...

    It makes sense that you need more... Unlike where 100 PS3's are equivalent to a Super Computer, 100 PCjr's are equivalent to a PC. :)

    Slightly off topic but humorous, sometimes I wonder where eBay gets their recommendations from. 'Sorry, that PCJr is no longer available but we found something similar...an Atari 400/800 Ram Card'. ...

    Meh. I have the scart box specifically for using modern lcd with my Atari ST. For composite or svideo systems, I have a Retrotink.

    So the only way I can answer this is that when I needed the cables, i made 8 pin DIN to S-Video/Composite. In my opinion, the only way to go with stock video on a C64 would be direct to a Commodore...

    Yeah, I try not to touch my Atari ST because every time I have to do anything on it, some chip dies in the process. This obviously was caused by you, but in my experience, most Atari's built during...
