    Well, no, the code is linked against UIS, the VWS UI toolkit. It has its own window and interacts directly with the mouse. The ReGIS emulation stuff happens in the terminal window. It'd be limited to...

    Thanks for digging this up, and for sharing. I installed it on my VAXstation 2000/GPX, running MicroVMS 4.7. It's... not a very polished product, is it? It drops to the debugger, for example, if it...

    Don't forget that this system had been in use and delivering results for some time already, by the time this television segment was produced and aired.

    It's theoretically possible, but would be odd given IBM's involvement. I did a desultory search to see if any public records pertaining to the project are online, as happens sometimes, but didn't...

    I thought of that, but you'd only get 16 greys at best from EGA, and you wouldn't get that on a standard 5154. So I'm pretty sure (but not 100% positive) it's not a 5154.

    The best shot I could find of her actually using the system was at 8:20, and it looks to me like an ordinary 5170 AT with what is probably a PGC, based on the appearance of the CRT and the image...

    There's no reason to destroy a Sun keyboard to get foam discs that are going to be just as rotten as yours. Just buy the new reproduction pads from TexElec.

    There's clearly nothing wrong with your 3180. But if it's not at the address the 5363 is expecting the console to be at, you're not going to get any farther than that.

    or it may be the 32-bit vs. 64-bit unsigned long issue in the file header. it seems possible, even though I don't know, that the authors of trs32 could have added code to cope with either.

    BTW if the last line of your source does not include cr/lf, according to C/80 it doesn't exist. That one bit...

    The answer is still no.

    The only thing you'll find wired on the ISA part of the card edge connector is power.

    The 5271 and 5273 display adapters are definitely compatible with the 5151. That is how I use mine as somehow I've ended up with three 5272s, none of which work.

    Yes.

    The difference in heat output from 4.8v isn't going to make any difference to whether the chip fails or not or how fast.

    What makes you think you "killed" some RAM chips at 5.08v?
