    That seems to depend on the quality of the handset. I've seen it work, but mine is sketchy.
  4. Are there any apps that let you use your cell phone as a modem?

    In conjunction with a usb to serial adapter?

    A lot of boards require the turbo jumper to be closed. These two boards require it to be open for normal 'turbo' mode. I spent way too much time before I figured it out. One gives me 7.8 frames in...

    Apparently, the turbo setting is 'header open' instead of 'header closed'. I cannot believe I went so long without checking that.

    Trying to revive a dead board whose eprom I overwrote like an ignoramus. I forgot to save the old image. Thanks for the link.

    Edit: I doubt it would work, I somehow missed this was an IBM machine...

    In both cases they were pulls from other dead boards. Cachechk says they're present and real. The numbers get slower outside their range.

    Have you tried swabbing the edge connectors with a very damp Q-tip? I do that for memory and cards all the time. I am told a pencil eraser works as well.
  10. Is the UMC UM82C491F chipset a known terrible chipset?

    I have 2 motherboards from different manufacturers. They both have 256K cache. I have tried the same AMI BIOS ( and the same Mr. BIOS (recently posted on Vogons). Both were tested with two different...

    Sorry to threadjack, but I don't suppose you have a way of dumping the BIOS for that motherboard, do you?

    I wouldn't have thought so. The one in my XT had a 1987 datecode on it, and I know I have seen ads for similar devices in the past.

    Tandy Smartwatch+

    Has anyone bought one of these Tandy Smartwatch+ units from here? Do they only work with Tandy machines? I know my IBM XT had a very similar device inserted between between the board and 32K system...

    Why are terminals still so expensive?

    I noticed when browsing Ebay the other days that terminals still go for quite a bit of money. Is there a particular reason for this?

    It didn't come from an IBM Wheel Writer, did it? They were typewriters with monitors.

    How are the UMBs used/accessed? I thought this was inherently impossible on XT class machines and the only way to get more ram was to install an EMS board.

    They looks to have completely different pinouts, assuming I have the right data sheets.




    Does anyone know if the BIOS for the Mini XT card is compatible with the Original Xi-8088?

    NEC V20s were made at speeds up to 16Mhz. I have no idea how one would benchmark, other than seeing how fast it drew in CAD programs. I admit this question was asked on Reddit on /r/battlestations,...

    P66, POD83, and AM5x86 133 comparison.

    Made this awhile back and posted it to VOGONS, though it garnered no responses. Just found it again. Nothing hugely detailed, just some scored from Phil's Benchmarking pack. Options 2, 4, 6, B and C...

    I have a quad-core AM2 that technically meets that qualification.

    Personally, I consider the P4+XP to be the modern era, though as always, the goalposts move.

    Isn't this what SETVER was for? To take care of programs that will freak out if it sees 5 or 6.22?
