    There were dozens of companies that made 386 to 486 upgrades, as well as Cyrix making the Cx486SLC (drop in replacement for 386SX) and the Cx486DLC (386DX replacement) which were sort of a...

    Higher voltage caps are usually internally different than lower voltage ones, so drifting too far in voltage can cause problems with ESR. Like a 50v cap will have a different and sometimes much...

    This is a stupid UEFI problem. There are two different types of Windows install media, legacy BIOS (CSM) and UEFI. You have to make the correct boot media in rufus (it has an option for UEFI or CSM),...

    Yeah, but you have to worry about ports blowing up, or the controller IC blowing up if the socket gets a short.

    20v and 100W on tiny pins can get very exciting. Even those old magsafe Apple...

    If you're worried about free hosts disappearing, use a paid image hosting service. But keep in mind that those too aren't perpetual, many paid hosting sites have gone by the wayside over the course...

    As someone who owns a SE FDHD, I can say with certainty that System 7 is quite dreadful on any of the compact macs with a 68000 and enough RAM to run it.

    System 7 does integrate a lot of features...

    I'd argue that USB-C is even worse than micro USB. You basically trade everything for the sake of speed.

    The connectors themselves are 6-10x more expensive. They're also more fragile than Micro...

    18v is far too high, are there any adjustment pots to tune the voltage of the rails?

    It looks like that supply doesn't regulate the +12v rail directly, but deriving it from the +5v rail. -12v and +12v sweep look like they're directly monitored.

    Not much is present on the +12v...

    You don't need to reinstall to upgrade to Pro, you just need to either buy the $99 upgrade from Microsoft or type in a Pro product key.

    I had to do a PSU swap on my SE FDHD, but I used a SFX power supply instead because the form factor fit much better and had more room inside the unit.

    I'm sure if the two caps were rated for high frequencies like used in deflection circuits, it'd be fine. But I'd only do it when literally no other option was available.
