    That's a studio/broadcast monitor, and DAYMN does it have some nice features! The thing must weigh a ton though :/

    Looks like Sony CCTV security monitor, or perhaps a studio monitor of some type. Does the model 1 use RF modulation for it's video out like the CoCo does?

    I haven't found one either. I've found CM-4 and CM-8 service manuals online, but no CM-5. There are similarities between the two monitors, and between them I might be able to trace what's wrong with...

    My dad taught me to tune the colour and focus on live CRTs when I was a kid, which must, by necessity, be done live. He never taught me to properly discharge the thing before doing any other work...

    Within DOS Shell, it's definitely from reading the directories, not from calculating free space. I think it tries to fast load the entire tree into memory so you can browse it quickly. On a small...

    One of the guys at my local retro-computer club brought a 4P for show-and-tell the one time. I was intrigued that it has the same style keyboard as the earlier Tandy 1000 models.

    Try from within DOS Shell. It has to do a directory and file count each time you select a drive.

    Still, how long does it take to do a DIR listing on an 8088 when your hard drive is in the gigabyte range? I dumped some archives of stuff from a few DOS machines we had years ago onto a CF card for...

    PCMCIA was a 8/16-bit expansion bus, but not directly compatible with ISA. It's got the data and address lines, but the control lines are different. See pinout here. It's possible to design a PCMCIA...

    Do the cards have any capacitors or resistor packs on them? I'm curious because I've got something related that I kludged together, which instead going to a backplane, goes from the bus to a breakout...

    That Seagate microdrive is surprisingly fast.
    The no-name CF card should say "Memory Technology Company" on the back. I think they're based in Taiwan.

    I wonder how many Cisco cards are just badged from other brands. It doesn't surprise me at all that this happens, but I wonder if they've got multiple brands under those labels and some of them might...

    That's why I said to note if the card was an "off brand." Sometimes people will skimp on something as basic as bypass caps, and I've learned my own lessons hand-wiring my other card what noise can...

    Wow, that's old!
    I've got some old IDE hard drives I want to go through and test with the XT-IDE. As convenient as the CF cards are, I like hearing the hard drive tick.
