    An excellent reference indeed! That and the CP/M 2 Alteration Guide were on my desk for the entire port of CP/M 2.2 to the CF card adapter for the 8085 SBC rev 3.

    Indeed, it can be LS or HCT family. I was using 74F573s for a while since they were significantly cheaper from one of my usual suppliers (they had several hundred in stock).

    I'd watch with having people do this if they aren't familiar with running Linux servers at all, there's a lot to go wrong that could leave your Raspberry Pi part of a botnet or mining bitcoin for...

    Nice! I like how they used both 30 and 72 pin SIMMs, so you could reuse what you had before the upgrade.

    Nice! I don't know if Coherent on x86 was like Interactive, but for Interactive, there were RAM limitations on ISA systems. EISA and MCA didn't have the same limits.

    The caps are in both the power supply and signal sections. There's three nonpolar electrolytics in the motor control section. They don't drag the supply down when they fail, I suspect they just lose...

    I repair them. Mostly it's bad caps. Sometimes the leakage damage is too extensive, I'm not sure what happens but the symptom is that the drive won't spin up. If your drive still spins up, it can...

    Thanks! People occasionally complain that it's more expensive than grinding the end down and soldering a battery-on-a-wire to it :p I wish more folks had sent in their dead NVRAMs when I had the...

    They'll also clear SBus boards, for Suns that have SBus slots over the NVRAM socket. Not sure if that's an issue for your situation. If you know other Sun hackers in your area, batching the orders...

    Very cool! Only upgrades I have are some Ross HyperSPARC modules and a Weitek PowerUP! and 64 MB SBus expansion. I've moved them between my SPARCstation 2 and SPARCstation IPX, can't decide which I'd...

    Well, they're labeled 1, 2, and 3 :) I'll dig into the docs and see if the previous owner noted what he was running. I have the full system, but haven't had time to dig into it.

    For sure, and even then, make sure it's been demonstrated running MITS BASIC or something. A lot of subtle faults can still exist while letting the machine run trivial toggle-in programs.
