Forum Rules and Etiquette

Our mission ...

This forum is part of our mission to promote the preservation of vintage computers through education and outreach. (In real life we also run events and have a museum.) We encourage you to join us, participate, share your knowledge, and enjoy.

This forum has been around in this format for over 15 years. These rules and guidelines help us maintain a healthy and active community, and we moderate the forum to keep things on track. Please familiarize yourself with these rules and guidelines.


Rule 1: Remain civil and respectful

There are several hundred people who actively participate here. People come from all different backgrounds and will have different ways of seeing things. You will not agree with everything you read here. Back-and-forth discussions are fine but do not cross the line into rude or disrespectful behavior.

Conduct yourself as you would at any other place where people come together in person to discuss their hobby. If you wouldn't say something to somebody in person, then you probably should not be writing it here.

This should be obvious but, just in case: profanity, threats, slurs against any group (sexual, racial, gender, etc.) will not be tolerated.


Rule 2: Stay close to the original topic being discussed
  • If you are starting a new thread choose a reasonable sub-forum to start your thread. (If you choose incorrectly don't worry, we can fix that.)
  • If you are responding to a thread, stay on topic - the original poster was trying to achieve something. You can always start a new thread instead of potentially "hijacking" an existing thread.



Rule 3: Contribute something meaningful

To put things in engineering terms, we value a high signal to noise ratio. Coming here should not be a waste of time.
  • This is not a chat room. If you are taking less than 30 seconds to make a post then you are probably doing something wrong. A post should be on topic, clear, and contribute something meaningful to the discussion. If people read your posts and feel that their time as been wasted, they will stop reading your posts. Worse yet, they will stop visiting and we'll lose their experience and contributions.
  • Do not bump threads.
  • Do not "necro-post" unless you are following up to a specific person on a specific thread. And even then, that person may have moved on. Just start a new thread for your related topic.
  • Use the Private Message system for posts that are targeted at a specific person.


Rule 4: "PM Sent!" messages (or, how to use the Private Message system)

This forum has a private message feature that we want people to use for messages that are not of general interest to other members.

In short, if you are going to reply to a thread and that reply is targeted to a specific individual and not of interest to anybody else (either now or in the future) then send a private message instead.

Here are some obvious examples of when you should not reply to a thread and use the PM system instead:
  • "PM Sent!": Do not tell the rest of us that you sent a PM ... the forum software will tell the other person that they have a PM waiting.
  • "How much is shipping to ....": This is a very specific and directed question that is not of interest to anybody else.


Why do we have this policy? Sending a "PM Sent!" type message basically wastes everybody else's time by making them having to scroll past a post in a thread that looks to be updated, when the update is not meaningful. And the person you are sending the PM to will be notified by the forum software that they have a message waiting for them. Look up at the top near the right edge where it says 'Notifications' ... if you have a PM waiting, it will tell you there.

Rule 5: Copyright and other legal issues

We are here to discuss vintage computing, so discussing software, books, and other intellectual property that is on-topic is fine. We don't want people using these forums to discuss or enable copyright violations or other things that are against the law; whether you agree with the law or not is irrelevant. Do not use our resources for something that is legally or morally questionable.

Our discussions here generally fall under "fair use." Telling people how to pirate a software title is an example of something that is not allowable here.


Reporting problematic posts

If you see spam, a wildly off-topic post, or something abusive or illegal please report the thread by clicking on the "Report Post" icon. (It looks like an exclamation point in a triangle and it is available under every post.) This send a notification to all of the moderators, so somebody will see it and deal with it.

If you are unsure you may consider sending a private message to a moderator instead.


New user moderation

New users are directly moderated so that we can weed spammers out early. This means that for your first 10 posts you will have some delay before they are seen. We understand this can be disruptive to the flow of conversation and we try to keep up with our new user moderation duties to avoid undue inconvenience. Please do not make duplicate posts, extra posts to bump your post count, or ask the moderators to expedite this process; 10 moderated posts will go by quickly.

New users also have a smaller personal message inbox limit and are rate limited when sending PMs to other users.


Other suggestions
  • Use Google, books, or other definitive sources. There is a lot of information out there.
  • Don't make people guess at what you are trying to say; we are not mind readers. Be clear and concise.
  • Spelling and grammar are not rated, but they do make a post easier to read.

    Toshiba t1100 and Toshiba T1100 Plus

    Hello to everybody I'm here because I need some help I am looking for a Toshiba T1100 or Toshiba T1100 plus but the thing is I don't have a clue what can be the value of it!

    I have contacted someone that send me photos of one and told me to make an offer to a Toshiba T1100 Plus but the thing is I really don't know what to say!

    Also I have a doubt in here check the pictures he sent me its about the date the pictures of about the date are in different pictures if he would have shoot them at different since the titles of the pictures are each one different he couldn't have taken them at the same time!

    Or maybe it is just me who doesn't understand that maybe in that time the clock wasn't moving just by this title does it mean that the computer is still working if it is in this state?

    Thanks for all your help and if ancient owners of Toshiba T1100 plus or current owners could help that would be very appreciate

    They may just be the last pictures the person took when they had the systems out? But yeah one is on a desk the other on a table or some cloth covered item. As for value, I've heard a lot of people like these systems but I don't believe they're worth a bunch. Anything under $100 plus shipping would probably be reasonable but it's more of what it's worth to you (and then to the seller). Out of curiosity what are you looking to use the system for? Have you searched the forums here? I recall one or two folks here having one for sale.

      In my junk collection I have a partially disassembled T1100. I don't remember if it's the regular T1100 or the Plus, but it has the two 720K floppy drives stacked on top of each other, and the non-backlit, non-supertwist LCD screen which is difficult to read with anything less than bright light shining on it. At this point I'm not sure if it still works, because it didn't come with an AC adapter and the Ni-Cad batteries inside were long dead, and I think in my attempts to get it running I may have burned out its power supply board with too much voltage. Oh well... if anyone wants it for parts, or is brave enough to attempt a repair, just drop me a line and we'll work something out.

        Hehe, well that is one of the more interesting sentences I've seen in a while. I'm not sure what you're referring to but any system date is not important. I'm pretty sure you have to enter it yourself.

        That's a nice looking machine. I'd offer him $20. A little more if he's a personal friend. I don't like to offend people by "bidding" low, but you have to realize that many people would just throw something like that away. If you can't find another one, and you absolutely want that model right now, then I'm with John - anything under $100 is OK.

          Well I see now that the images were taken on the same day with different hours so and still in this year so it's no fake, also I watched that he wrote copy disk on the 2nd image, so it's legit

            The T1100 has one 720K drive (about 1.5 inches tall), whereas the T1100 Plus has two 720K drives in about the same space.

              Can someone help me on this matter I have spoken with a guy that has a Toshiba T1100 everything is fine as he says but he doesn't have the charger now my question is like this will a charger of Toshiba T1100 Plus will fit in the Toshiba T1100 ?

              the Toshiba T1100 Plus is a Battery power warning light included AC adapter 220 - 240 VAC, 9 VDC output.

                  Thank you for the answer Vint I think that I have to get one toshiba t1100 with the adapter!

                  Another question I have in mind is this the serial numbers that appear in the back of any Toshiba Laptop reflects the number of the unit:
                  in another words if the serial number of a Toshiba T1100 Plus lists: 05817960
                  and another Toshiba T1100 Plus lists the following number : 01850792

                  Which one is older or more recent can we have confirmation from Toshiba online or by phone in regards to the unit which is older?
                  I have found this site from Toshiba but it doesn't seem to work in older units like Toshiba T1100 Plus any other way?

                  thanks a lot

                      I tried the serial number from my T1100 Plus 10623588 and got no results either at the site link you posted.

                      I don't know how one would determine the age of these machine from the serial number, but the T1100 came with DOS 2.11 and the T1100 Plus came with DOS 2.11 and later DOS 3.2.
                      Now, there is some controversy over the real release dates for these DOS version but the best I can discern is that DOS 2.11 was released in Oct. of 1983 and DOS 3.2 was released in Dec. of 1985.
                      The T1100 & T1100 Plus machines would fit in that era from Oct. 1983 - clear through whenever they stopped making T1100 Plus or until DOS 3.3 was released in 1987 - If going by the OS's means anything

                      Not quite sure what you're after here.

                        The T1100 was released in April '85 (refer http://www.itworld.com/050420toshibalaptop)

                        One source indicates that the T1100 Plus release in the UK was delayed compared to the release in the US. According to http://www.cbronline.com/news/toshib...the_t1100_plus , it wasn't realeased in the UK until February '87. So that suggests to me a release date in the US of late 1986. That is supported by a September '86 article in InfoWorld magazine on the T1100 Plus (at http://books.google.com.au/books?id=...=PA46&lpg=PA46)

                          A Toshiba flavour of MS-DOS was supplied with the machines. Toshiba DOS included Toshiba specific software. Which version of Toshiba DOS was supplied with which Toshiba machine is in TECHNICAL SUPPORT BULLETIN TSB-061-C. A copy is at http://members.dodo.com.au/~slappane..._TSB-061-C.txt

                          TECHNICAL SUPPORT BULLETIN TSB-0009-C lists issues arising from using IBM DOS instead of Toshiba DOS. A copy is at http://members.dodo.com.au/~slappane...TSB-0009-C.txt
