    Microsoft has always made efforts to make sure the logon screen is not so easily faked. Requiring C-A-D is one of these, I don't know if this is. I don't know what the big deal is- it's just a visual...

    It was pointed out to me this weekend that I completely missed the point of the OP.

    It's widely known and tested, and has far fewer side effects than the peroxide-accelerated versions. See Forum64.de (Google translate will change from German if you don't speak/read it).

    I made a cartridge for the Commodore 64 that has LEDs on each of the address and data lines (as well as some other status lines). After building it all, I was quite disappointed that mostly all it...

    It does work, just very slowly, and some items react much better than others. Here in Georgia I have to be careful things don't melt when it gets 100 degrees F and up and it doesn't rain. About 3-4...

    Yeah, you are going to have to track down and perform trace repair, or at least jumper over the bad tracks. Corrosion has damaged it.

    They were not bright white when shipped, but not yellow. "Office" white, maybe. I work in IT and we do cabling and I know network faceplates can be 10 different shades of "white".

    If that's the one that has the phone plug on it and could act as a voicemail server, I never found the software that worked with it, even back in the 90's. I was even an IBM dealer, and could never...

    I had bizarre problems where my XTIDE v4 did not work in my 5150 (or 5160 I think) but it did work in newer PC's (386/486). I sent it to Glitch and he fixed it... I think he said one of the chips was...

    Those are modern versions that have a larger ROM and more programs built into the menus.

    None work in 128 mode.
