    While the correct bracket is obviously preferable, is it absolutely necessary? IOW, could you live with another bracket or other support structure in there, so long as it held whatever drives you...

    The last time I read the dilution instructions on a herbicide, it said to mix it with 100 gallons of water and spray it from an airplane.

    I gave up at that point.

    This is just a vague memory of something that I skimmed over while looking for something else, so I don't guarantee its accuracy. That said, one of the early Brother drives (for a knitting machine...

    It's a fair cop, guv, society's to blame.

    There was a thread, ages ago, where somebody was being a little paranoid about EMI from their PC corrupting its own hard drive. Somebody else made a witty...

    I think I might have seen one of those, somewhere. I'll look.

    Where are you located? That's often quite important.

    Surely I can't be the only one who read the thread's title and thought "Did you try CTRL G?"?

    A little over 700 miles for me. I'd have to either fly out and rent a truck to bring it back or make two round trips with my truck. Despite that, I'm still tempted - if only I had the time.

    I am not optimistic about this thread's chances if we veer off into a discussion of central banking and negative interest rates. In fact, I anticipate a mortality rate way higher than that of any...

    Along those lines, I have some minor repairs to do to the table. Got out my caliper gauge to measure the dowels and found that they're 0.5" by 2.5" - decidedly not metric. I can only speculate that...

    I have a Sun optical mousepad, though I don't know which version (or even whether there were different versions). Remarkably, I even know exactly where it is - on top of a printer at my big shop. I...

    Oh, it's not that anything has shut down here*, it's just that I don't know where they'd be. So it's a matter of waiting until either (a) they turn up while I'm looking for something else or (b) I...

    The case of my LeCroy 3500 is made out of the same stuff. Has a couple of cracks that I need to glue, but in pretty fair shape otherwise, considering. I wouldn't want to ship it, though. Some...

    I might, but there's no guarantee that I'll see them again before the apocalypse - though I could stumble across them tomorrow. Possibly literally. I think I know where some CAMAC modules are, though.
  14. Has anybody seen a LeCroy 3921 (I think) floppy drive for the 3500 Multibus System?

    I have a LeCroy 3500 - not sure which particular variant. It's a Multibus machine, 8085 CPU, with built in CRT and a built in CAMAC crate. Mine is pretty rough, cosmetically but has enough boards to...

    This is a good example of how "free" can end up being expensive. I wouldn't go as far as to call it an alternative origin of the maxim "never get it for free when you can pay for it" though...

    Probably, but I don't recall seeing it recently, so it might take a bit of searching to find it. I think I have some other stuff, too, like AutoCAD 13 disks & manuals, along with add ons like...

    Thanks Dave.

    So, in this drawing from the spec, Slot 1 would be connectors J5 and optionally J5A, closest to the termination resistors?

    Multibus slot nomenclature

    I've been reading up on Multibus and it's beginning to feel like either I'm overlooking the obvious or I'm looking for something that doesn't exist.

    Don't they make cold bags in that shape? As a bonus, the insulation might provide some extra cushioning.

    The Pro-Logs that I have seen had metal cased erasers, re-badged Spectrolines, iirc. Of course, there are doubtless many models that I haven't seen... so I'm sure that you're correct.
