    DEBUG is a good thing to learn anyway because every single system with 64K or more RAM can run it, and most DOS systems come with it. It's cumbersome, but perfectly functional for inspection tasks...

    I'm not sure about the PM limitation in 2019, but it was definitely in place in 2018 and earlier. This poster has only posted once, so I'm unsure of the policy.

    z0rb, people can't send you PMs until you've posted 10 times and been approved by a moderator, so please provide some contact information if you could, thanks.

    A working one with cable usually goes for $150, just to set your expectations.

    They're more of a curiosity than an actual speedup, but I'm assuming you know that. You get a computer that's...

    That's correct. The Total DOS Collection images have been stripped of their copy-protection.

    My guess is that the capacitors on the motherboard are going bad and are taking longer to energize. Replacing them may help, but before you do this, you should remove everything from the system...

    It's been 30 years; it's possible the electrolytic caps on the SB are drying out. Replacing them may help with the noise.

    Any image file with .img in a recognizable format (360k, 720k, etc.) is a raw dump and can be written with nearly any raw writer. An .img that is 500K or 1.1MB is likely a single-sided/double-sided...

    The original components are good for exhibition. I also hate that mouse, but it's the mouse that came with the IBM PS/2 Model 30, and looks good/consistent when paired with one, so that's the one I...

    All Phoenix beep codes are either 3 beep sequences or 4 beep sequences, which isn't matching with your description of two beep sequences. Try powering it up, listening carefully, and compare what...

    It already uses an NEC V20; you can't upgrade that to a V30 as the BIU is different, nor a V40 as the architecture is different. I suppose you might be able to use a speedup board, but that would...

    Again: Bing is not a browser. It is a search engine, and your Firefox has been set to use that as the home page. You're still running FireFox.

    Maybe your FireFox updated itself somehow? Or you...

    "pin assignment" is the kicker. Without the original cable, no idea what the arrangement is. (Granted, it's likely linear, which means there are probably only 4 possible arrangements.)

    GoScript (not to be confused with GhostScript, although both are postscript rasterizers) took advantage of half-stepping both the carriage and the platen to strike 4x as many dots when printing on a...

    Fair enough. It's not for me, but for people who like to preserve the floppy-only experience, they'd like it. The only use I would personally have for it is for running/testing applications that...

    Actually he used low-res, which is why the game is rendered in 40x50. This was done in an attempt to keep the size down, and he didn't want to use dbl-low-res or dbl-hi-res for extra colors because...

    Did you download it via FTP in ASCII mode by mistake? Ensure Binary mode and try again. They are 100% normally-sized images.

    Edit: Never mind, it seems the images on the 6300 shrine might not...

    They're the low-end of high-end interfaces, but should be fine for most pro-sumer DAW needs. (I use a FocusRite, but a professional musician friend told me his industry doesn't touch them for...

    The way these usually work is that there is a ribbon cable that connects to (and replaces) the CPU socket on your mainboard. You usually can't just plug the card in and have it work. Does your card...

    It's more correct to call this a conversion, rather than a port, since the author did not attempt any reverse-engineering of the original code or data -- he did it all by watching gameplay. That's a...

    It's not 4 dots wide; it's 9 dots wide with the dots overlapping. It's the same 9x9 matrix but the stepper motor steps in a smaller step. You should find a printout; it makes sense when you look at...

    If everything works but the floppy drive, don't send it to the scrapper. This might be caused by a DMA conflict; remove the sound card and see if the problem persists.
