    I have some fanfold paper, which I'm confident won't be of any interest purely due to the expense of shipping it across the pond. But it does make me wonder whether you've considered using fan-fold...

    I really appreciate that I can have 200+ tabs open in Chrome for over a week and performance doesn't suffer much. If the new Edge can't do this I think I'll need to keep using Chrome.

    I assume because it's posted in "Marketplace / Vintage Computer Auctions" that it's for sale. The link takes you to the auction.

    I would guess BD CSM is a self-test diagnostic code indicating there's some kind of problem with the system. Is that code mentioned in any of the system manuals?

    I'm surprised to hear it as well. I saw an Adaptec disk controller in the list as well that I thought would get some interest. And you don't see Localtalk cards very often; I'm surprised you had no...

    This is basically what you need to do, and the command to save the BAM (and any other dirty buffers) is commonly called "closing a file".

    If you are feeling truly inspired, you might consider...

    Finalization was only 'final' using CD-R media. For a CD-RW you could always 'unfinalize' a disc by erasing it completely. Recall that multi-session discs were a thing, and finalization was how you...

    On the PC, the tools I generally used for this kind of thing in the DOS days were Turbo Debugger to identify what to patch (and to test patches), and Norton Disk Editor to actually apply (i.e. save)...

    Are there 86 pins on each package, or 43? It kind of looks like there's a second row of contacts underneath the visible contacts on each side. Seems unlikely; I have no idea why anyone would make a...

    here's an example from back then of a CPU interposer design with a battery holder:

    It's hard to say what's best since the 1970's is the period when keyboards were switching from bit-paired layouts to typewriter-paired layouts (these are the terms Wikipedia has). By "bit-paired" I...

    The easiest way may be to run CP/M-86 on a PC. CP/M on a Commodore 128 might also be fairly accessible. I suspect these are probably not really the direction you were wanting to go, but I'm posting...

    This is why I'm pretty sure that the second card is actually a CGA card, which is in turn why I recommend not connecting a 5151 monitor to it.

    I'd think that any system that can boot from a USB drive ought to be able to boot from a USB CF adapter. Though I've never actually tried this myself, maybe I should get such an adapter and find out.

    Probably your best bet. No pictures and no prices is going to severely limit people's interest.

    Not weird at all, because a greek keyboard wouldn't have been involved. This outcome would have been due to printer font mappings, and fonts are usually encoded in collation (aka 'sorting') order...

    The /84 was the Unibus-capable version of the Qbus-only /83. I don't think "Unibus" and "Micro" were particularly compatible monikers. I'm used to seeing "Micro" as a prefix only for PDP-11 models...

    I stand corrected. On some monitors you can do this, but apparently there are others where you can't. Best not take chances.

    If the APS drive already appears on the desktop, is there really any need to re-initialize it? Can't you copy the System folder to the drive then do whatever magic it was to bless it? Or did that...
