    We'll be there Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, all day. Often, folks who are running exhibits come during one of the talks they're less interested in.

    I haven't priced it out yet but I'm guessing around $60.
  3. Poll: ANNOUNCE: VCF East 2020 Kit: Rockwell R6501Q Single Board Computer

    I haven't personally written one, you'll have to customize. I could get out my Ampro LittleBoard setup and customize on that, it uses a Z80-SIO and I'm pretty sure it gets the bitrate off the CTC.

    There have been minimal implementations with the J11, you might look at some of those. I've never looked at the bare CPUs in enough detail to know what'd be involved with the F11.

    Yeah, that's a Vector Electronics product, you can find it in their mid-to-late 70s catalogs. They're still in business, their specialty is ready-made prototyping products like standard cards, card...

    It'll work with either, I use a FDADAP with my imaging machine, and often run dual drives. Do plug the FDADAP into the non-twist (B: drive) plug on the 34-pin floppy cable, and use the 8" drive...

    Make sure you're using single-sided media. The index hole is in a different place on double-sided 8" media and will result in no index pulse and the "No interrupt from FDC" message in ImageDisk. Your...

    That's all WIPEDISK is doing, except it's a Turbo Pascal program wrapped around it :p I keep it on my XT-IDE utilities floppy, easier than punching in DEBUG commands. Just remember to type CAPITAL C...

    Always use WIPEDISK or equivalent to destroy old partition data, especially if the disk/CF/whatever was previously used in a more modern system.

    If you do a deal outside of a marketplace, there's no protection from the marketplace. I usually pay with credit card (through PayPal) in case something goes wrong. It's not unusual for...
