    The idea is that you run the PGC as the secondary display card (this is a supported configuration) and you can still run something like a CGA card for the rest. (for example:...

    You also get other weird gimmicks suckh as weighted free spinning scrollwheels, weights (because some people like the mouse to be heavier) and price. ;)

    The joke writes itself ;)

    Well he wants to pay $1500 for an Apple II and then flip it with different parts he can, but it doesn't mean he's a successful shyster unless it sells.

    I can vouch for that 3D print being excellent. You will need a rather high precision printer for the buttons (otherwise shrink the button model a little or they will not fit correctly) but the...

    70's NCR Retail Terminal Help

    This has been my project ever since 'rona mania flared up. It's an early 1970's Class 250 electronic cash register manufactured by NCR and using core memory. Could also be a networked terminal. All I...

    I was not aware that you could still get NOS/NIB CD-ROM and CD-RW drives.
    I also can't help but notice you have not tested most of the drives yet. I'd be complaining about the poor packaging but if...

    Sometimes the inrush protectors will give out after "traumatic" instances. I likewise have seen them randomly fail and pop the fuse.

    There's no electrical incompatibilities, so simply drop the 3-chip fake parity SIMMs in and either it's going to POST and pass or it won't do anything.

    Yeah that's about how far my knowledge on switch-mode goes. A main oscillator drives a MOSFET pair and magic happens and blam, clean +12, +5 and +24v.
  22. Can't tell if a power supply is Linear or Switched-Mode
