    The links to other parts of the blogs can be fixed with a simple re-write rule. (Which are never actually simple, but close enough - it is a string replacement.) Those were broken by the host name...

    Sorry Chuck. We do a reasonable job of keeping things running. My original posts from 16+ years ago are still available, which is amazing considering we've had several forum upgrades and at least...

    <Long message from the OP deleted>

    george - this is not the place to litigate eBay disputes. Keep it on eBay. The level of detail in that last post was excessive and does not belong here.

    Drop shipping is certainly a thing, and I'm quite aware of it. But there is a big difference if I personally send something that I know to be in good shape vs. drop shipping, where I might not have...

    Why does that auction say that shipping is from China if you are in Bulgaria?

    Gentlemen,

    As supportive as I am of keeping old hardware running, I need to remind you about the forum rule regarding copyright. Please review it. We've not turned into Vetusware, but we'd made...

    There are generally two device drivers involved. One that speaks to the SCSI card at a low level and provides the more general APSI programming API. The other is a storage device driver or...

    It's a legal question so your best answer will come from a lawyer. After asking 5 lawyers and picking the answer you like best. :)

    Any 386 class PC system should scan and recognize option ROMs. VGA was implemented as an option ROM, as are SCSI cards. I think the only machines that do not scan for option ROMs are the first...

    kgober - you are absolutely right, they are grey with the red band for driving the screws that attach them to the parallel port. The red band is very distinctive though. :-)

    That really does not look like a Xircom PE3-10BT. It should be red, and with the -10BT designation it should only have a twisted pair connection, not a thinnet connection.

    Not getting a response to a posting you've made in a day doesn't mean that "no one here cares" - all it means is that you didn't get a response, and there can be many reasons for that.

    Stone,

    Your comment is not particularly funny and not helpful to this thread. Please reply to a thread when you have something positive to add, not to throw in a one-liner.
