  1. I don't know if this counts as a bug report,...

    I don't know if this counts as a bug report, exactly, but I do seem to be having issues with the FTP and HTGET programs over PPP from an XT-class machine. The TL;DR version is, using FTP as an...

    I've been doing some more testing with serial transfers, and I'm starting to wish I had another ancient 8088-class computer sitting around to sanity check against. I'm curious what kind of effective...

    I sat down and RTFM'ed, and it looks like Kermit is doing the needful. (It has the necessary knobs to tell it to ignore DCD) Now I just need to do some more experiments now and try to digest the...

    So I ran through the setup again; it offers as a choice configuring for "Direct Connect", which I think I'd already done. Unfortunately I now understand the reason why it pops up a screen stressing...

    I didn't see any setting for that, but I'll look again.

    Only if I had another machine with a parallel port, and an adapter to make the Tandy 1000's card edge into a conventional connector.
  7. Procomm Plus for DOS: ignore carrier detect?

    Quick question: is there any way to make Procomm Plus for DOS ignore the state of carrier detect when used with a null modem cable? I've been trying to do some file transfers and the only null modem...

    So... if you're looking for honest criticism I suppose I would probably have this main observation:

    I'm not sure it really makes sense to dispense with making the greater direct addressing space...

    I second that it might be interesting to at least see if Linux makes anything of it, although since it isn't plug-and-play if a driver *does* exist you might need to specifically modprobe it with the...

    The original VNC was licensed under the GNU license, which of course means any direct derivative also is.

    That actually brings up a question that's been gnawing on me a little: I noticed when I was scrounging around for information on building a PC serial card that there were some late-model 165x0 ISA...

    I suppose really, practically speaking what would you use a Tandy 1000 for? Name a task and it's going to be more slow and less reliable than most other options. :p

    The specific use case I had in...

    Googling Emerald Systems turns up some old PC Mag reviews that kind of imply their tape backup software didn't load any kind of driver in config.sys at all, that the backup software (ASP) drove the...
  14. Correct.

    Correct.

    My rusty memory is that the V-20 is CMOS but it includes internal pull-ups to make it TTL compatible? (Like HCT series 74' logic?)

    If you want one I can kind of vouch for this seller, at least so...
  16. Heh. It's the missing keyboard that's going to be...

    Heh. It's the missing keyboard that's going to be the hard part. Don't have an extra of those, do you? ;)

    I can definitely solder up one of these serial cards for you if you're happy with the...

    Neat! I'll have to see about scrounging up a suitable power supply for it when it arrives. (And possibly improvise something for a keyboard, I have a few ideas along those lines.) I think HXes are...

    I recently ordered a couple suspiciously-cheap NEC V-20 CPUs that were advertised as 16Mhz parts. They have beautiful clear markings on them and have obviously been "refurbished" from pulls (the chip...

    Here are a couple more pictures showing how the port alignment works out with the current prototype.

    It's actually not bad; the ends of the male connectors are only about a...
  20. DIY Native Tandy 1000 EX/HX-bus dual serial card

    Per some overloading in some other threads, one of the projects I've been working on for my Tandy 1000 EX is a native serial card based on the 16552 dual UART, which is essentially two 16550 enhanced...

    I have a feeling the OP is gone forever, but since debug was mentioned I suppose if we knew the make and model of the controller we could add to the list that many XT hard drive controllers have a...

    I vote for the audio from one of those viral "screaming goat" videos. That should cover any and all error conditions adequately.

    Was the C128 ever sold in any numbers to educational customers? I know Commodore had a reputation for filling those orders with machines that were slapped together from essentially random parts they...

    I second the idea of laying out a schematic for the board. I know it'll probably seem like a lot of busy work to connect a bazillion switch symbols in the appropriate grid, but once it's done it'll...

    That does seem to be the basic problem with the idea of making XT-CF sound like a mechanical hard drive; it's just *sooooo* much faster that if you made the synthetic noise have any relation to...
