    Ah, true that. I just can't think of anything compelling that isn't a single SWF you could easily play standalone, but it looks like at least one person here can.

    Everything worthwhile in Flash format should work with an older version of the player that doesn't do that, I s'pect.

    Yeah, there are definitely proper Z80s running at high speeds. IIRC my Zeta SBC has a 20MHz Z80 in it.

    That's about what I figured - interesting to hear about it, though. I'd never heard of the things until their mention in this thread.

    You can improve that by disabling search indexing and other unnecessary services, but generally, yeah.

    Were there many CGA clones that still had issues with snow, or was that primarily an issue with the original IBM card? I don't know that I'd consider it worth the trouble, unless it's really...

    Mainly, I just can't fathom why you'd bother. Anything that can run Vista acceptably can run 7 just as well, AFAIK, and anything that can't is better suited for XP anyway.

    Vista was garbage. Vista SP2 was just differently-flavored garbage, that's all.

    Yeah, it's possible. There are also a variety of natively dual-headed display adapters available for PCI Macs.

    Yeah, Unity and GNOME 3 were a laughable dumpster fire.

    That said, I've found that desktop icons are more trouble than they're worth, particularly on smaller screens where they're going to be...

    Fortunately, there's systemd-free distros out there that are reasonably well-supported. Because yes, giving the creator of the most broken and janky Linux sound system out of all the broken and janky...

    I think the other part is that the Alpha was too late in the game and around for too short a time to really acquire the kind of cultural cachet that the earlier DEC systems did. The -11 and the VAX...

    I think the resolution is probably too coarse for dithering to work as a true blending technique, but you could certainly do wireframe vector graphics or simple monochrome bitmap stuff.

    I mean, effectively in an anaglyphic setup you'd be limited to monochrome images (red and cyan being "white" in the left/right images respectively, while white is "white" in both,) which at 320x200...

    I have a spare VSXXX mouse I'd be happy to loan to anybody interested in reverse-engineering the protocol with an eye toward making an adapter.

    As someone who tracks project concepts and work by filesystem directory structure, this concept intrigues me. Almost want to take a stab at it myself, but that'd open up a whole can of cans o'...

    Yeah, the HP pizzaboxen aren't tanks (you could bludgeon a man with a Sparcstation 2,) but they're reasonably well-built and not made out of Spindler plastic, at least. My bigger problem has to do...

    Welcome aboard! Need to get back to playing around with my old Macs some more, myself; I'm afraid other hobby stuff is currently taking up most of my free time. Still love 'em though :)

    Yeah, it made reasonable sense, it was just one of those things where "standards" went in a different direction.

    Any 3w3-to-BNC cable should do fine, since you can just swap the BNC connectors around to the right jacks. That's what I ended up doing with my VAXStation.

    There are a number of Sun display adapters that do support 1280x1024 (or even higher.) It's just the earlier cards and the 1MB base-model versions of the later ones that are limited to the weird...

    I know mine is hard-sectored, but I don't know anything other than that. I had to get a system disk from someone on here or cctalk, IIRC.

    I have no insight to offer on the actual topic, but this couplet has a pleasing little rap cadence to it.
