    All you do is copy the whole screen buffer into a borderless window and manipulate it however you like. You don't have to alter the existing windows.

    It's been a few years since I programmed anything in Windows, but I don't see why it would be difficult to do.

    Sure I can. But I can't go back and check something later.

    Any for which the only input device that works at boot time is toggle switches. Toggling without LEDs is possible, but what a pain.

    Well the years were nice...

    I might try to switch back to FreedomPop / Red Packet /whatever if I can..

    Hopefully then you didn't toggle a 773 where you needed a 771.

    Except that you can't feel, hear, and smell a CPU running. If you haven't got LEDs, you'd better have otherv means of output.

    Just like a hand crank on the front of a car. Who needs that when you always have a working electric starter, a good battery, a battery charger and a way to power it, and a tow truck at a moment's...

    Soldered on wires doesn't necessarily indicate a repair. Plenty of boards leave the factory this way.

    This does not look like an RS232 card to me.

    Switches are input, LEDs are output. You input machine language directly on the switches (no assembly). This is the most basic way to enter machine language directly to a computer. You must have...

    Because having another computer to feed information to it otherwise is more than the bare minimum, and more than what is necessary.

    When you're programming in machine language, (not assembly language,) the LEDs are the bare minimum you need, but also the most you really need to do your work.

    I always wonder if a flyback transformer can really whine. Usually ceramic disk capacitors make very good high frequency audio speakers, but not potted transformers.

    With the availability of battery powered angle grinders I wonder why criminals even care about security screws. For a long time I've wondered why there hasn't been a plethora of crime related to the...

    I don't have information on #6 low head screws. But the minimum head height for a #8 low head is .080". The maximum height for a #6 should be less than that. The minimum height for a standard #6...

    Measure the head. If it's around .138 tall, it's a standard Torx drive socket head cap screw. If it's shorter than that, it's a Torx drive low head cap screw.

    I think Shadow Lord has it right; they look like cap screws to me, not cheese head. They might be low head, but I think this is the standard cap screw head with Torx.

    I'd give The Nutty Company a...

    In the 90s, most people needing them had Torx™ drivers. But the £5 Chinese sets with a dozen each of 5, 6, 7 lobe, and 5, 6, and 7 lobe security drivers weren't available yet.

    Grounding is electrical. What you're seeing is magnetic. You need some kind of magnetic shielding between the transformer and the CRT. Something is missing.
