    That was my attitude -- I wouldn't use them in something for an industrial control customer, but they're fine for hobbyist stuff, and they're so cheap you can get a few every time to make sure you...

    Watch out on those little "HX-218" adapters (they show up with other numbers too). I usually buy 5 or 10 at a time to make sure I get enough good ones for whatever I'm doing. They're universally...

    Agree on the "nothing but machine pin sockets, if possible!"



    Interestingly, there's still a lot of NOS small bottles of cleaning solutions that are 80/20 isopropyl alcohol and Freon TF. All of...

    Haha, oh no, Stabilant 22 :p I know folks that swear it actually works, but I could never bring myself to buy some at the price, with material that reads like old timey patent medicine!

    Make sure you had the config program generate a checksum for the ROM -- the system won't pick it up if the checksum is wrong (it may or may not give a ROM CHECKSUM ERROR or similar, not all systems...

    Huh, neat! I didn't know SyQuest made stuff that far back either! Post pictures and such once you have them up and running :)

    Definitely in the Power PC OS 9 days, I think I remember using it on early OS X as well.

    Bill Degnan has an Altair in a desk, and I've seen one other in recent memory. I've never seen the printer stand or chair in person, don't know if that was a matching thing or not. I wouldn't be...

    Yeah, I've heard some of the PS/2 planar hard disks are having cap issues, too. I haven't personally encountered any -- all of the PS/2 hard disks I've had to deal with were definitely mechanically...

    I've been recapping them for folks -- looks like Hal9000 is going to send me his!

    PSA: if you do have PS/2 floppy drives that haven't been recapped, even if they're still working or mostly...

    No setup disk, it's a jumper-type card, not PnP/jumperless. The usual NE2000 drivers should all work fine. If this isn't an actual Novell/Eagle card it's just someone else running their layout (iirc...

    This is an Intel Xpress chassis! It's Intel's professional/OEM line for embedding that era system in e.g. industrial control applications. The motherboard is really more of a backplane, there are...

    Looks a lot like the one that went with Pro-Log programmers, if anyone is missing theirs.

    Maybe if someone split it up and sold the cards. Unless you're in a large city where it's likely you'll have a local buyer, it's pretty difficult to sell complete large systems like a Cromemco. Any...

    Nice, compact little system!

    You can probably also boot vtserver and dump the drive over a serial link, for a "just copy the bytes" image. Those are usually mountable in e.g. Ersatz-11 or SIMH. It...

    Gave the thread a read, I wonder if someone didn't get a little crazy with the heat gun. When I've removed CRT cataracts, or seen RetroHacker_ do it, the glass of the actual CRT was warm but not hot....

    Just run a separate network with no encryption, or WEP if you really feel you must run *something*. Don't leave it switched on all the time, and maybe don't run DHCP (unsurprisingly, this thwarts a...

    "Seems to kinda work" is what PS/2 floppies do before completely failing from bad capacitors, in my experience. Do be sure to replace all of the surface mount electrolytics, I've had two PS/2 1.44 MB...

    You have probably destroyed the DS1287, most ICs won't survive being installed backwards. Probably not the motherboard though, since there's only 5V logic on the DS1287. You will have to buy a...

    Yeah, the ads that cripple browsers and the cases of malware being delivered over ad networks got me using adblockers on everything. Before that, I just blackhole DNSed some of the more prolific...
