    Only mention the bit about the Trantors, because the fairly common PROM-less T13B was sold with CD ROM drives. My blog on cloning PALs contains the equations for the missing PAL (socketed, BTW). ...

    With what? Solvent? That turned the bits to crumbly granules. If you've followed my posts through the years, you'd know that I'm a big proponent of solvent cements in place of glue. Some stuff...

    Anyone with some of the late 80s self-destructing Apple gear might learn something. I tossed a perfectly good Apple color monitor because the case would spontaneously shed bits of itself with no...

    You first. When you succeed in preserving plastics, be sure to notify the Guggenheim and other museums with plastic artworks that desperately need preserving. The problem with a lot of old...

    You did see the notice by the museum conservators rejecting the Retr0brite treatment--it apparently cause small cracks in the plastic surface. But hey, a Model D isn't as rare as a 2 cent Inverted...

    You may just want to repaint the bezel in a water-based acrylic paint. That will seal it and help retard further degradation. Just mask off the badge.

    I looked all over the web and couldn't find any 8-bit ISA Tekram controllers. Found some 16 bit ISA ones, though.

    I think the OP may be interested in something like a Seagate ST-01 or Trantor 128.

    I use both Siemens and Qume drives. They work fine. The Siemens is essentially a clone of the Shugart.

    Let's see your jumpers.

    The best and fastest interface is usually direct access. If you're trying to do something else while data is coming in or out, use interrupt driven routines. Otherwise, poll-mode can be more...

    A PALCE is the orignal Lattice version of the GAL. Programmable with the same basic configuration, but since programming algorithms are usually licensed only to programmer vendors, it's difficult to...

    I try not to, if it can be avoided. I do more cross-platform stuff nowadays and don't want to spend time how to say the same thing optimally on different ISAs.

    Sure, it's not going anywhere. But again, you must be in the USA--I don't ship internationally.

    Most desktop managers are resource hogs. I've used XFCE for years because of its low impact. Resembles the traditional Windows desktop pretty well.

    And learning exactly what? Believe it or...

    I've got a Logitech Scanman hand scanner, complete with software and card. It's the original monochrome one. If it's the same interface as your Mitsumi, it's yours for shipping in the USA.

    Please read the thread again. The card was made for an early optical WORM drive with ESDI interface. One of the reviews even says as much. The firmware is specific to the drive, so it isn't going...

    Dunno--I always got my 9x files from MSDN CDs, which only superficially resembled the retail and OEM ones.

    I've been tempted by giveaway plasma TVs ("free stuff") on Craigslist from time to time, but never went for any. I suspect that, being used, the display isn't what it used to be, no matter if the...

    Then there was IE 2.0 and a bunch of new drivers (6 page list of them).
