    People don't realize that because of gaming the mechanical keyboard community is literally an order of magnitude larger than the retro-computing community. It seems that in certain places like...

    LGR is definitely a different generation. In the video you can clearly see him walking right by a bunch of CP/M systems, terminals, an Altos or two and he appears disinterested. I'd be picking it...

    This is about right for a good condition, working NeXTstation Turbo, Monitor, and keyboard.

    You can still buy them professionally refurbished from Blackhole and their prices are a good barometer....

    The Amiga is such a different beast but also a joy in its own right. When programming you can bang directly on the hardware just like a c64. Have fun exploring.

    There is a 5.25' drive bay, you would need to find a quarter height floppy. I did not see that 8" drives were a requirement. In that case the best best is to skip BSD and get an old Ampro mini-system...

    Thank you! I haven't had the option for anything other than polycarbonate, but it may just be because of where I buy my glasses. I will definitely consider getting a pair of glass lenses.
  9. When did low-quality eye glasses become the norm?

    I recently lost my glasses and have switched to a nearly 20 year old pair while I wait for my new pair to arrive. When I put the old pair on I immediately noticed that the lenses, despite being a...

    Wow, a company with a reasonable attitude toward copyrights! Making it completely open source/public domain would have been better, but even the terms they laid out are more generous than I’d expect...

    If you have kids and both work full time, it is a fantastic time saver. We use it all the time, even for things that would be cheaper at a supermarket/Walmart.

    You did not get taken for a ride. The cheap 3D printers lack a lot of features like heated beds, auto leveling, and require you to be a handyman/hacker (they seem to get the best performance from...

    Almost no one used the composite jack as intended - the Luma output of the A500/2000 was very clean and you could get an extremely sharp hi-res picture (640x400 interlaced) on a cheap, long-phosphor...

    If you don't like them you can resell them pretty easily. What you are looking for is called SA profile (very tall) or OEM (not as tall but still sculpted). There are plenty of key caps available in...

    Is he really divesting? He just purchased an Epson QX-10 from me a month ago. Perhaps he does what I do, sell to acquire something new.

    Well Commodore was never afraid to cut costs, so I am not terribly surprised if this were the case for all PET64s. I was just surprised so many sites failed to mention the lack of a SID chip.
  25. Interesting PET64 - no SID from the factory

    Interesting PET64 just sold on eBay. It looks to have no internal speaker or SID from the factory.
