    One of the games for the TRS-80 I consider particularly amusing is Olympic Decathlon, if only because I was introduced to the IBM PC port of it first (a copy came with the first PC clone we ever...

    My thought there is so far as I know the DMA lines are the only method on the ISA bus to tell the onboard CPU to stop being the busmaster and let another device drive the address and data lines....

    I am kind of curious how that "PC Elevator" card puts the main CPU to sleep so it can drive the data/address bus when it's in command, given it doesn't run a cable to the CPU socket. Maybe it...

    Visually at least the soldering quality of all of my CF adapters is pretty sketchy, but I'd have to say the 44 pin ones (same PCB as pictured earlier) look even worse than the 40 I have (Also that...

    Actually doesn't "Windows/286" still run in real mode? I think Windows 3.0 is when "Standard Mode" was introduced.

    That is a good question, though. I wonder what happens with this board if you try...

    This bit on the apple2.org wiki seems to be the best laid-out explanation as to why *some* Unidisk 5.25 drives don't work with the ROM3 and a couple other late model Apple II-family "things". But as...

    Based on the results from my first round of extensive QA I'm going to create a bootdisk with James Pearce's DISKTEST.EXE on it and go through my pile of cards again, running a cycle or two of the...

    It's almost a running joke among certain British YouTube-ers that they're terrified of getting content matched (Ashens and Techmoan have both gone to great lengths to avoid playing more than a few...

    So, I'll probably go ahead and update the device compatibility thread after I'm more 100% sure of the relevance of my data. I spent a couple hours this Saturday playing Mr. QA and double-checking...

    Actually the original B&W TRS-80s had a surprisingly extensive library of games, including some arcade ports that were better than they deserved to be considering the graphical limitations. Companies...

    This evening I had a few spare minutes to take one of the 512MB Unigen Flash cards and install it in the 1000 SUX. To give it the fairest chance the card was DD'ed entirely with zeros before...

    I usually have it in full manual when it's fixed on the CRT, I've just tried to use the hybrid mode a few times when I'm desperately trying to get a longer shot to work... and I can't offhandedly say...

    Excellent, hopefully it'll work for you. I knew about the "write it back" functionality in the configuration utility because the homemade XT-CF cards I've built for my machines use SST Flash chips...

    That's the fun part, at least without spending money.

    I do shoot in manual mode, or at least semi-manual; my camera has several options which vary between "set everything manually" and "manually...

    It is remarkably more difficult to get a not-obviously-flawed closeup picture out of an SLR you're using for video than it is a decent smartphone, that is true. It's really a combination of both...

    Well, that's the trick, though; real quality hands-on experience/information doesn't automatically result in an engaging presentation. Production values per se are actually a separate variable; I'd...

    For the floppy problem I'd probably recommend checking out FlashFloppy plus a cheap Gotek as a future solution, at least. I was similarly SOL when it came to writing a PC-formatted 5 1/4" disk when I...

    The WGS6312 has a 286 CPU in it, doesn't it? If that's the case you probably want to at least use IDE_XTP.BIN instead of IDE_XT.BIN. (Or is it an M240 with an 8086? It looks like they're two...

    Something I discovered in the box with the CFs is I also have four PCMCIA ATA flash cards. Part of me is curious if they'd work, but whether they do or not is probably such a singularly useless thing...

    I spun up a new Youtube channel, what, a month and a half ago myself. (Because, you know, there simply aren't enough retro electronics channels out there...) And, yeah, I've been feeling the same...

    There were a *few* upgrade cards that supported protected mode software. I'm guessing they were using an Intel Inboard 386/PC upgraded via a socket adapter, I vaguely recall seeing some threads about...

    I just dumped out the handy stash-O-Cisco-CFs and ran them through the USB converter setup. (Faster than sticking them in the Tandys and I might as well DD the boot sectors clean anyway.) The...

    The SOTA board ups the clock speed to 12mhz and comes with a cache so it's probably faster at least some of the time. But by how much is a fair question.
  24. It's just a SOTA 286i accelerator....

    It's just a SOTA 286i accelerator. It's not specifically for the M24, one of the advertised features of this card is it worked with both 8088 and 8086 PCs. It's not really a "Bi-Processor" card in...

    All of the CF cards I have, including those evil 2GBs, are Cisco labeled, but of course that doesn't really mean anything. I think I'll spend an hour at some point documenting what they identify as...
