    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...

    You're probably best off not trusting *any* browser to fully anonymize your activity through a TOR wrapper/plugin/whatever. Everything leaks, accidentally or not.

    Mike's Altair 8800C is indeed a great option for those who don't care if the machine itself is actually old, and just want the experience of hacking on a front panel S-100 system.

    There's a version of the ADIT router card that does do SIP (or so I've read, haven't pulled the trigger on an ADIT 600 yet), but I agree you'll be better off with a T1/E1 on the Asterisk box....

    The format is probably silently failing, or the format program never verifies the format. Since you're able to write routines to test it out, can you write one to try and step in and out from track...

    Supposedly that's why they were quick to change it to PocketZip -- IIRC, that was right around the time of the class action suit against them for the good old Click of Death!
