    Honestly I don't think it's a big deal to disclose the exact attendance numbers, but I won't because that's a decision the board of directors should be making as a group; it is not for any single one...

    I'm not a particular fan of the word "proprietary" and I wish Evan had not been so blunt. We generally don't share details like that but I think it's safe to let you know that we were well over...

    This is what we call a "religious battle" ... you start with an ambiguous situation that relies on interpretation, let people interpret it differently, and then have them fight about it endlessly.

    Rules and policies exist because we can't see your facial expressions or body language in text. Do not make things political, even in jest, because we can't read your mind.

    You are kidding, right?

    We have a strict "No politics" rule here. Fox news is known to elicit reactions from people. And then in comment #13 you drag CNN into a topic that has neither to do with...

    The fact that this was on Fox news had nothing to do with anything. So next time, I wouldn't even put that in the subject of the thread. (And I've fixed it.)

    The debate is an excellent example...

    Read through the thread ... reply #12 to be specific. I posted it here in 2014 and posted my original page on the Internet in 2008. WinWorldPC has a version too.

    There have been a few threads here in the past about this particular model of hard drive.

    The 256 byte sector is kind of goofy for DOS, so it probably wasn't being sold as a hard drive strictly...

    Small correction ... It runs at 1200 bps, not 2400.

    I hate the idea of destroying old drives, even if there is data on them. Nobody is going to shed a tear for an IDE drive that was produced in the millions, but the older or more unusual drives...

    That information is probably not lost to time. It's probably just a matter of opening the printer and having a look at the circuit board and other parts.

    Also, IBM made cash registers at the...

    That's a neat little printer; the print wheel arrangement is new to me. (I'm familiar with the IBM Selectric "golfball" and daisy wheel letter quality printers.)

    And yes, that was painful to...
  15. IBM Compact Printer video (Watch it Print!)

    About 10 years ago I played around with an IBM Compact Printer, including doing some programming to exercise the graphics mode. Two house moves later the printer was nowhere in site and I had an...

    Neat project - it reminds me that I should get to work on my next idea, a proxy that just strips SSL. That way older machines can continue to use HTTP even though only HTTPS might be available. I'm...

    Hi - mTCP author here.

    Can you email me both versions of the packet driver?

    It irritates me when people lose interest, but that is also a way to weed out people who are not serious. I understand that $100 or $150 is a bit of coin for a lot of people, but consider that the...

    Everybody loves the jrIDE. Raise the price - seriously, it is easy to defend an increase.

    I mentioned this in IRC during the discussion there and will throw it out here as more food for thought.

    Part of the problem is the quality of the derivative products. If we want people to know...

    Ah, the Sears SR2000. I spent fifteen years looking for the manual and finally obtained it in the past year.

    It will do parallel or serial via option boards; look on the back of the printer to...
