    WWV-synchronized clocks were available in the consumer market at least starting in the 1980s. The signals are pretty strong throughout the US (and probably a good segment of Canada and Mexico),...

    Isn't that mostly a matter of changing the "home" page setting in "Preferences"? I like blank tabs myself.

    Now, if you wanted to be period-authentic, you'd rig up a receiver and decoder for the WWV time signal.

    I like to keep a running copy of XP around for reference--it runs on VirtualBox under Linux AMD64. It's serviceable. I have a real XP boot partition as well, just in case, but haven't actually...

    Actually, most of those capacitance values are pretty standard. You may have to go up a bit on the voltage rating (WV = working volts); e.g. 180 F at 450V aren't uncommon at all. Just verify...

    SIMTEL20 is a great source for this kind of vintage stuff.

    I ran across my disk for EA's "Music Construction Set" for the PC, PC XT and PC JR. Copy-protected, of course.

    It would seem to me that the UKans have things a bit easier--portable power tool transformers can be readily had that translate 220V to 55-0-55V, no? Of course, the center-tap ground can also be an...

    My shop has outlets for 240V; 240V or 208V is common in commercial buildings; standard NEMA 6-15 15A receptacles look like the illustration below. My table saw and planer run from 240V for example....

    Are you certain that the Microbee power supply can't be re-jumpered for 120V? Assuming that there aren't any 50Hz dependent parts in the thing, one approach is to use an isolation transformer. ...

    Top row is usually numbered, bottom row lettered. Some letters may be left out. Looking at two from my hellbox, an 18/36 connector has the top row as 1-18 and the bottom row A-V. A 22/44...

    When evaluating emulators, running the old Pianoman scores gives a good aural idea of the accuracy of the emulation.

    For what little it's worth, I have a Compaq PSU that looks just like a standard ATX model, but with very different pinout--and the "power on" has to be pulled up to activate.

    Apparently you can also edit the xorg.conf file, but in Debian Squeeze, I can't find it--it's definitely not in /etc/X11.

    I guess I'll have to run Xorg --configure to get it. Strange that it...

    I'm cheap; I use a couple of TP-LINK TL-WA855RE range extenders. I find it's simplest to just use static IP on my systems.
