    That part wouldn't be as bad as you might think because people have already implemented many of the old microprocessors in an fpga. It's not something that you'd have to do yourself. I was reading a...

    The ones I've seen plug into an ISA slot(or at least get mounted into one of the slots) with an onboard 286 CPU, you move the 8088 CPU to the card, and then a ribbon cable from the card plugs into...

    FPGA accelerator cards

    There have been a couple posts recently about 8088/286 accelerator cards but they are pretty hard to find these days. How hard would it be to make an 8-bit isa card using an FPGA and software cores...

    It bites both ways. If you have a commodity item it will drive the price down but if your item is less common it will drive the price up. On the whole, I find eBay to be invaluable because it...

    eBay prices aren't universally horrible. But, I'll grant you that getting a good price on eBay takes a lot of diligence and patience.

    No it isn't. I was defining "keyboard people" as people who tear vintage keyboards apart for their parts and use them(or sell them to people who use them) in ugly modern keyboards. If that wasn't...

    I did notice that. I messaged him asking about that on one of his listings which was missing a CPU. He said that he had tested it using a CPU from his collection of spare parts, which he subsequently...

    I have an IBM 5160 which came with a top cover that went for a 3270 and, unfortunately, someone had "corrected" the logo badge with an engraving tool and a sharpie. I'd like to get the case back to...
