    That's the discrete logic version, very nice. If we were closer I'd certainly offer to buy it.

    There are still places in NJ where I could get resistors (or maybe). Wanted to get this done over the weekend. Don't really want to send away for that stuff. We'll see.

    I bought a Rexus power supply

    It's a unknown brand, I get it. It's intended for use with a Athlon XP/socket 462 motherboard. I'm afraid to plug it in (especially after my dishevelled Tandy 4000 caught on fire earlier). I would...

    There's a Dupli-Color product available over here at auto parts stores But it doesn't say Holts. Is it likely the same product? I don't suppose it comes in a pop top can. I can't see that it does.

    Curious if this will run 32 bit Xeons. My understanding is there are a few socket 604 xeons that are 32 bit.
