    That's exactly what it does. The same thing I believe is done on the regular IBM PC motherboard (and presumably clones). It's cheap but works apparently...until it doesn't. I think your solution...

    Cool. Mine is blue. A few of the keys are sticky, it doesn't have lower case, and I'm missing the cover for the option DIP switches that you have. I need to get me one of those. The display on mine...

    As mentioned, they aren't much use on the WWW without SSL and modern web browser plug in support (and updated html and javascript).

    I'll add to the cacophony that $2500 for such a machine seems an entirely reasonable asking price. Whether it sells for that is up to the seller and buyer, but certainly not an unheard of price for...

    Glad someone got it. Surprisingly and for once, this one showed up in my town, but I wasn't interested so I figured I'd let someone else have a go at it.

    Yeah, no 4K chips on the Colecovision... there are 2 2114 1kx4 SRAMs for the main memory and 8 4116 16kx1 DRAMs for the Video display process.

    Does it also have this problem if you attempt to use the drive in C-64 mode without the cartridge?

    I write disk images from DOS prompt on a Windows ME computer with no issues, although I have had issues with some machines BIOS/controller not supporting more than a single drive and/or 5.25" formats.

    Don't bother.

    I think for some potting material the preferred method of removing it is to soak in some sort of solvent like kerosene or the like.

    Best to replace with a better supply.

    Unless it can't be moved easily, I never meet anyone at my house for a CL deal. I always meet them in an adequately lit and frequented location.

    Yep, and I guarantee you the $8k 1983 car has nowhere near the opulence found in a modern car costing $34k.

    The 1084 should have two separate inputs for analog and digital RGB...these should be round DIN style connectors. Is this what's from your NEC monitor? The pinout is unlikely to be the same.

    I haven't done this either, but have heard of good results. Personally if I were going this route I wouldn't use ordinary dishwasher detergent, as it can be pretty caustic.

    I've used the aforementioned switchbox approach with mine in the past. Lately I just move cables between the Amiga, PCjr, and Commodore 128D.

    Yeah, I'd like to know what happened with this stuff. The tapes I'm sure are probably the thing of most importance.

    That is fantastic! I've thought it would be great to have something like this to act as a gateway to our old machines accessing stuff on the World Wide Web (not to be confused with the Internet).

    Different expectations back then I think. 16MB was an improvement to be sure, but I didn't feel like I *had* to have more than 8MB, which is what the original post was asking. 8MB is sufficient. Is...
