    The newly-affordable resin printers have an astonishing resolution; for small parts, I have hope. For larger parts, the filament-style printers are still too course IMO.

    You should test the board in a real IBM PC or XT before declaring it has issues. Many accelerator boards will not work properly in clones, especially those that don't replace the CPU with a ribbon...

    The ones popping up for less than $150 are all not working. The ones tested working are around $250 US. (This is based on the last 10 ebay sold listings done from a search just now.)

    The only sane way to try to perform data recovery of this is to read every single sector, from 0 until the end of the drive, into a file. Then, mount a copy of that file in either Linux and run...

    Some VGA BIOSes have 80186 or 80286 instructions in them, as they were engineered for 16-bit slots and knew they would be getting one of those CPUs or better. Not sure if that's your case, but...

    The very first PCI slots in Pentium 60s were very tempermental -- sometimes you had to put the card in a specific slot, and sometimes specific cards simply wouldn't work no matter what. Since your...

    I don't think you have anything to worry about. People are going to be using SIMCGA (for example) as long as green phosphors still glow.

    This is just a guess, but the enhanced CGA board might be putting out a 400-line signal instead of a 200-line. A monitor built for that (like an Olivetti M24 or AT&T 6300 monitor) might produce a...

    I don't know what a "slappie" is, but if it means "apologist", I'm not. I'm just stating that there is no loss of convenience. To get the game, you have to download it from somewhere, so why...
