    Brain fart, I use the ones that go the other way -- IDE cable to SATA drives.

    You can also use a SATA to IDE bridge. Startech makes a good one, they work with both hard disks and optical drives, even burners.

    Check the box for the eBay Global Shipping Program. You just mail the package to their facility in the US and they reship it for you. Sometimes it costs the buyer a lot, sometimes it's pretty...

    It's a DS1287 for sure, a DS12887 or GW-12887-1 will work in its place -- that's what I run.

    Not to dig up a dead thread, but yes, these motherboards often have shorted tantalums that shut down the power supply. I've got a small stack of the 6-slot Intel Xpress boards to go through, all shut...

    My CP/M build requires a ROM swap, there are almost certainly builds out there that don't. I have SD Systems CP/M Plus (CP/M 3) on 8" that I haven't gotten working yet; presumably, that boots with...

    The SD Systems board set is nice, that's basically an entire SDOS or CP/M setup minus the disk drives and S-100 backplane. I don't need it, but if someone here gets it and wants to get CP/M up and...

    Typically $25 for hobbyists. Regular electrolytics get replaced with same-size modern electrolytics, the bipolar/nonpolar electrolytics get replaced with MLCC 1206 ceramic caps which are much better....

    An excellent reference indeed! That and the CP/M 2 Alteration Guide were on my desk for the entire port of CP/M 2.2 to the CF card adapter for the 8085 SBC rev 3.

    Indeed, it can be LS or HCT family. I was using 74F573s for a while since they were significantly cheaper from one of my usual suppliers (they had several hundred in stock).

    I'd watch with having people do this if they aren't familiar with running Linux servers at all, there's a lot to go wrong that could leave your Raspberry Pi part of a botnet or mining bitcoin for...

    Nice! I like how they used both 30 and 72 pin SIMMs, so you could reuse what you had before the upgrade.

    Nice! I don't know if Coherent on x86 was like Interactive, but for Interactive, there were RAM limitations on ISA systems. EISA and MCA didn't have the same limits.

    The caps are in both the power supply and signal sections. There's three nonpolar electrolytics in the motor control section. They don't drag the supply down when they fail, I suspect they just lose...

    I repair them. Mostly it's bad caps. Sometimes the leakage damage is too extensive, I'm not sure what happens but the symptom is that the drive won't spin up. If your drive still spins up, it can...

    Thanks! People occasionally complain that it's more expensive than grinding the end down and soldering a battery-on-a-wire to it :p I wish more folks had sent in their dead NVRAMs when I had the...

    They'll also clear SBus boards, for Suns that have SBus slots over the NVRAM socket. Not sure if that's an issue for your situation. If you know other Sun hackers in your area, batching the orders...

    Very cool! Only upgrades I have are some Ross HyperSPARC modules and a Weitek PowerUP! and 64 MB SBus expansion. I've moved them between my SPARCstation 2 and SPARCstation IPX, can't decide which I'd...

    It is indeed a neat little SBC! My first taste of machine code and assembly was on a KIM-1 that'd been given to me by a future employer. Dead power supply and missing its 1 MHz crystal. Never got...

    Well, they're labeled 1, 2, and 3 :) I'll dig into the docs and see if the previous owner noted what he was running. I have the full system, but haven't had time to dig into it.
