    That is one of the very best first efforts I've ever seen! Clear and informative with a light brush of humor. It looked like you used a camera with dual pixel autofocus, as your overhead shots have...

    My Israeli friend just found a service specifically for our use case: https://www.ushops.co.il/
    Costs seem reasonable, and they specifically mention they don't repack without authorization. We'll...

    It is, unfortunately, as neither of us has experience in this area.

    Found the Retro Tech shipping playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL_Hm88_bscLSTaxoQbLr9y2djIB-ZxrTC and will be...

    I wasn't able to find any shipping consolidators that do not repack items, and a fragile CRT is definitely not something I want repacked.

    I agree that the dimensions are an issue. But, this is a CRT, it's fragile and needs as much protection as possible, so I'm afraid my hands might be tied.

    Looks very promising, thanks for the tip!!

    Edit: Unfortunately it's still quite pricey -- when the dimensions and weight are entered into the shipping calculator, it's $378-$397. However, that's...

    What operating system? If CPM, I think it's BIOS(3)? For a PC, it's BIOS($16).

    What version of Turbo Pascal? If on a PC and > 3, use readkey() (in the CRT unit, so beware). If 6 or greater,...

    Do you mean the 486sx-16? The 486dx wasn't available in 16 MHz parts AFAIK.

    (I've never seen a 486sx-16 in the wild. I'd love to have someone run topbench and make a database entry for it. It...

    That's a really neat trick, but how does the name resolution work? I see your A records go to servers owned by github, but how is the resolution handled? Your repo doesn't seem to follow the...
  10. Do cheaper USA-to-international shipping options exist other than the USPS?

    I am trying to ship one of my IBM 5153s (CGA CRT monitor) from the USA to a friend in Israel. I assumed USPS was the cheapest, so I looked up the price and was shocked to learn that the USPS, for a...

    I'm not sure this is the best example. It would be much cheaper and sharper to use a CAD solution that can actually drive an HD monitor at the panel's native resolution.

    In 2020, we have the...

    You're going to have to be more specific than that. For what platform? What formats? What application/usage/scenario?

    I've had a love/hate relationship with the 386sx. I have very fond memories of the 386sx-16 era, where it was a very cheap way to get a flat 32-bit address space, protected memory, hardware...

    Yes, but the 3100 came with 2MB of RAM, which is a big reason why it's able to do that. A system with 1MB total is not going to have a very fun time.

    Zargon and Wolf3d require VGA. Commander Keen had a CGA version, that's what you need to run.

    2MB and a 386 is plenty to play some great games. There are at least 1500 you can choose from.

    Direct inline() of x86 opcodes were supported from TP3 onward, but it wasn't until TP6 that you could inline actual intel syntax mnemonic assembly (within reason).

    What a wonderful resource, especially including the software, thank you so much! I've always wanted a PC JX (I'm a PCjr fan) but sadly IBM dumped their non-selling stock in Australia and New...

    I am trying to ship one of my 5153s to a friend in Israel (who attempted to do the same, only to find ebay's GSP had pulverised it into plastic and glass shards). I assumed USPS was the cheapest, so...

    Normally I'd ask for a much better, much closer screenshot to verify this, but I usually defer to VileR's assessment in these matters. Still, a very close shot of the screen might be informative,...
