    It's been a while since I updated, so...

    Where things are now is I'm starting to wonder if I jumped the gun on thinking the RTL8019AS was the right thing to go with. I saw a number of reports that...
  2. I can vouch for the bad FPU performance. I...

    I can vouch for the bad FPU performance. I up/sidegraded my first Pentium-socket motherboard from a K5-90 to one of the "166+" 686Ls, and TL;DR:

    * Integer performance was great, it easily felt as...
  3. If there's enough space for it this stacking...

    If there's enough space for it this stacking header idea should let you use the original cable. (I plugged it into the motherboard header on my frankenstein because I don't have any original drives,...

    In my unfiltered opinion Pentium 4 laptops were uniformly terrible products. Because of the fundamental thermal and power constraints of the Netburst core cramming one into a laptop meant it either...
  5. In fairness I haven't tested the whole batch; the...

    In fairness I haven't tested the whole batch; the chip I tried is the one I had in it back when I had the "backwards buffer" problem, I probably shouldn't rule out that I could have zapped it...
  6. For what it's worth, I've assembled a specimen of...

    For what it's worth, I've assembled a specimen of my new RAM/ROM card and initially tested it in both the EX and the Frankenstein HX and so far it looks like the PCB is correct. (Planning to shoot a...

    I've run both 2 and 3 with no apparent problem. (At one point I was wondering if there might be some incompatibility with 3.0 because I would intermittently get errors on the extended RAM test that...

    I just finished soldering and initially smoke testing my new I/O board that has the IDE port and the DUART behind the same buffer and, knock on wood, doesn't seem to be a problem. (I've run the...
  9. Quick and dirty floppy adapter for Tandy 1000s with power-over-cable wiring

    One of my side projects lately has been coming up with ways to convert a bare Tandy 1000 HX motherboard into a working test mule for expansion boards and whatnot. It's reached the point that it was...
  10. I guess the way I phrased the sentence was open...

    I guess the way I phrased the sentence was open to interpretation, what I meant was "what Plus card are you likely to find inside of a 256k EX/HX, if it has a card, that you might actually want to...
  11. The other night I finally sat down determined to...

    The other night I finally sat down determined to come up with a BOM for what it would cost quantity one to build up a bare boardset from Digi-Key and, quite frankly, it was pretty awful. The killers...
  12. The big gotchya, previously mentioned, is Plus...

    The big gotchya, previously mentioned, is Plus boards *should* have their panel connectors on the opposite side from the components, unlike a standard ISA card, and that has some knock-on effects...
  13. Heh. Yeah, I mostly just imagine it'd be nice to...

    Heh. Yeah, I mostly just imagine it'd be nice to just be able to unload a few to recover a bit of what I spent over the saga and keep them from going to waste; the idea of going all-in on making a...
  14. I mostly use my EX for "general hackery" instead...

    I mostly use my EX for "general hackery" instead of gaming so I really appreciate having the clock. But it certainly wouldn't be necessary otherwise.

    (The reason why I want an ISA riser is for a...
  15. It's okay, they blend. I think the operative part...

    It's okay, they blend. I think the operative part of "mercenary scrapper" is "mercenary", and there seems to be more than adequate evidence that both his behavior and attitude while at the warehouse...

    I'm using the PC16552DV, which is the equivalent of two 16550s Siamese-twinned into the same PLCC-44 space as the standard 16550. (It manages this by getting rid of a bunch of connections that aren't...

    This. It's there in plain black-and-white in his Deskthority threads, where after posting a picture of some exotic "OOOH, IT HAS STRIPES!" keyswitches he found inside of a (insert rare old keyboard...

    The TL;DR, though, is he was banned, with cause, by the people in charge of the warehouse. Maybe you don't have a problem with the behavior that they banned him for, whatever it was, but it doesn't...
  19. I almost did manage to swap them when I was...

    I almost did manage to swap them when I was making my first card; the EX tech manual has diagrams on page 6 and page 9, and the two sides are swapped on the latter one, which I was referencing a lot...

    Yeah, guilty as charged here. :p

    I wonder if I should offer my flawed boards as some sort of door prize, since they only take a single wire to fix.

    I can't vouch for it because I've never tried it (haven't had a whole lot of time for serious gaming in a loooong time...) but Lutris might be of some help.

    Way, way back in the day before it was...

    Yep. The AS/400 was an evolution/consolidation of the number of IBM's oddball minicomputer lines; it's most directly descended from the System/38, but was basically positioned as the migration path...

    It looks like my new PCBs are in the mail, so if everything goes okay I might be soldering one together by next weekend. A few people have expressed interest in getting a set of boards, if the design...

    At the rate Microsoft is going with integrating Linux components into Windows I can't help but wonder if there's going to be a day not that far off in the future where they just throw in the towel...

    I believe it's in the ide standard to do it to help detect if there are no devices present; I don't know if xtide relies on it but I went ahead and included it in my XT-CF rev.2- equivalent card.
