    Same, always just reworked old cables. I had the special tool for IDC dual row connectors, ended up selling it, I find a small arbor press is a lot more convenient. A vise also works, like NeXT said....

    Yep! It'll be there, up and running, with a vintage terminal attached.



    Thanks!

    I added 4K additional SRAM to replace the ROM when it's moved up to 0xF000, and now have Palo Alto Tiny BASIC...

    If you can put Ethernet in it, just run mTCP's FTP server and do a recursive get from another computer. If you use a graphical FTP client on the other computer, you can typically just drag the C...

    I used to use the 3x or 4x AA or AAA packs, but I typically use a 1/2AA 3.6V cell in a holder nowadays. I've found the hermetically sealed Tadiran lithium thionyl chloride cells you can get in 1/2AA...

    Nice! Works well with those extra-wide slots on a 5150, too! I definitely run out of slots in the 5150, part of the reason I don't usually have one set up and running. Memory expansion, floppy...

    Can't speak from experience, but I'd imagine CP/M remained a popular choice in the early to mid 80s due to the massive, established software library that was probably adequate for many home users,...

    Athana recently sold their business to floppydisk.com and last time I talked with them, it sounded like they were just running on existing stock. Some stuff they apparently still have a lot of, but...

    This is, as far as they know, the last of their stock.



    I'd been selling them for $10/box of 10. Thinking I'll sell them for $5/box of 10 ($250 for a full case) at VCF Midwest.

    I'd personally say that's too much feature creep/too much danger for the XUB itself.

    WIPEDISK definitely just nukes the first few blocks of the drive, but it usually got enough of the partitioning/formatting from whatever was there before. It was nice to have around since it would...

    They won't get tested before shipping -- inside each case is 50 boxes of 10, sealed and shrinkwrapped. I'd hate to have to do a backup job and need *that* many :)

    Neat! Easy solution to an actual PS/2 interface requiring a fair bit of system integration, and the CPLD certainly makes for easier development/debugging.

    I've received numerous boards wrapped in aluminum foil, then placed inside a bag or plastic wrap, no problems so far. Sometimes it can be a mess to pick off the pins on a through-hole board.

    A bad RAM location would just result in smaller detected size.
