    Now I've got another problem. I wanted a nice screen of text for a picture, so I tried to set the "auto NL" mode and found out that the DIP switch had partly collapsed and I couldn't turn it on. Not...

    Okay, I finally have it put back together now. Glass cleaner really does work to get that stuff off, at worst you just need to scrape a few spots with your fingernail. Do it outside in the sun and...

    Well I did it... and I didn't even use the hot air gun! I was kind of bored and curious (always a dangerous combination) and started picking away at it with this:

    Sark finally convinced me to fix those cataracts already. It's better to do it in the sun to get the glass warm before starting, tomorrow and Thursday are going to be the last two warm (90F-ish) days...

    I redid the character generator images as asm files where the bits are represented with X and underline characters like "DB _X__X". I made it have exactly one copy (just use an external tool to put...

    I was only half serious, but it's good to know that an 0.1" grid doesn't give proper keyboard spacing. Now that the keyboard is working, and the only thing wrong is CRT cataracts, I'm happy. And that...

    I actually have one lurking in my storage space, yes with the half-fridge drive. It was just too big to keep in air-conditioned space, and I never had time to play with it, but I also never had time...

    Hey, if there's a mod reading, can you move this to Genres -> Other? It didn't seem quite clear where to go when I originally posted this. Maybe there should be a category for...

    So I found my eraser the next day. Then I made a lowercase board with a 2764 because I have so many more of those. And it didn't work, I just got blocks. I started debugging it yesterday and just...

    What happened to this poor DC-4?

    Here's another thing I found at a thrift store ~20 years ago. It was found in San Antonio, but who knows whether it had been sent back to SWTPC or what. It looks like someone tried to "repair" it by...

    Lear Siegler ADM-3A working

    About 20 years ago I found this at a thrift store. I couldn't get it working beyond somehow glitching a character onto the screen, which was just enough to confirm that at least it had raster. I was...

    I've got two people interested. One local guy just wants one working one (and I'd like him to also have a not fully working one for parts), and Robert is willing to get the rest moved. So I'm now...
  14. HP 64xxx series stuff in Austin/San Antonio

    I have a set of HP equipment that was used for 6809 in-circuit emulator at my place of work back in the late '90s. I ended up with it after my company stopped using it, but never even powered it on....
  15. TRS-80 Model IV stuff for free in Austin/San Antonio

    I am moving back from Austin to San Antonio, and I have eight Model IV and four Model 4P units in various condition that I have no room for. I would like to give them to someone local because I don't...
  16. Austin, TX: Intergraph InterPro 125 - free or best offer

    I have an Intergraph InterPro 125 taking up space in the garage and I want someone to come take it away.

    It's a Clipper CPU Unix workstation with an 80MB (?) SCSI hard drive in a cube about 15...

    I've had a couple of inquiries about it, but I needed to give a bit of a status update.

    I learned enough on how to use the monitor that I was able to tell that a few of the 4116 DRAMs were bad...

    Heathkit H11A - Austin, TX

    I found this boat anchor years ago at a thrift store and got it because I knew it didn't deserve to be junked. But I never powered it up, or even had the guts to try until today. I just now tried it...

    For what it's worth, all three ports on the Genesis are identical, aside from the gender of the rear port. They all have a serial interface that can do 300, 600, 1200, and 4800 baud, with interrupt...
