Thread: What's your vintage computer to do list look like for 2018?

  1. #81


    Got the ethernet switch today. Managed to get two NE2000 clones and a 3C509 working. Doom works great with 3 PCs on IPX. Need to experiment with the other two NE2000 clones. One did not work earlier: tried two different ethernet cables. Also have a PCI 3COM I could try.

    Turns out the ethernet cable is fine. So will need to figure out what is going on.

    Clearly most of us have been doing that since the 80's, which explains our vintage computer collection.

    Don't want to jinx myself, but my to-do list for the remainder of 2018 and a healthy chunk of 2019 consists of A. getting my SBC6120 kit up and running, and B. hacking up a small game project for it. Gonna try and see if I can't actually exhibit something at VCFW for once

    1. Get my RC2014 working.
    2. Fix my Tandy 1100FD.
    3. Make a SD/TPDD for my Tandy 102.
    4. Make more software for my Radio Shack PC-2's plotter.

    Got all four NE2000s from SI to work. One I figured out by removing the sticker from the controller chip. I then downloaded the configuration utility. One needed media auto select to be turned on. All four work fine with generic LSL, NE2000 and IPXODI. Played Doom and C&C successfully already.

    The new issues are that my Dictaphone Pentium 133 appears to have a bad PS/2 mouse port and the serial mouse I bought for the generic Pentium 200 does not scroll down properly. Never a dull moment.

    1. Find an IBM PS/2 Model 95 or 90 XP
    2. Find a MCA soundcard or get that Parallel LPT sound card thing
    3. Get WFW3.11 to use all 12 MB of RAM on my PS/2 Model 80 (only sees 4MB)
    4. Clean the Model 80 inside, dusty as heeeeellll.
    Looking For:
    IBM PS/2 Server 95 (9595, 8595 or iterations thereof)
    IBM PS/2 Model 90 XP
    XT Compatible VGA card, memory card, IDE card
    MCA sound cards
    IBM PC Server 720

    For the remainder of 2018, my current biggest obstacle is either aligning my Zorba's floppy drives (With a transplant to my PC/XT so I can use ImgDisk to gauge their shape) or finding someone with a scope, a cateye disk and the time to do it for me once i've got cash to commission with.
