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.

    FS: Misc. ISA Cards $5 each

    I'm thinning out the ISA card collection! For a long time I have been saving these for projects, and I'll never be able to use them all. So I figure I'd pass them on to others.

    $5 each. Doesn't matter the rarity/eBay price that these have - I just need them gone. There might be some good deals in there, I'm honestly not sure!
    Can adjust price if buying multiple cards. Shipping USPS usually works out to about $4 in postage (located in NY State). I have a verified PayPal business acct. Will update post as often as possible.
    Thanks for looking!

    Hi!

    It's CC_333 from 68k MLA, and I was wondering if card #4 (the ATI Wonder VGA) would enable me to have VGA graphics on, say, an IBM PC/XT? My 5153 got smashed to oblivion, and I'm trying to come up with a cheaper alternative so I can at least use the machine while I save up for another 5153.

    Thanks,

    c

      I'm not 100% certain that it would, but this site might be helpful https://sites.google.com/site/atiwonderseriesdatabase/ Just search the page for 109004800. It shows some info about the modes it supports, as well as chipset information.

        I do know that the Trident 8900CL cards he has listed commonly appear on "8 bit friendly" VGA lists.

            Yeah the VGA Wonder cards do work on XTs .... the Wonder 16 should actually have 9pin RGBI + VGA outputs and a bus mouse connector the round 9pin barrel. Though the RGBI and bus mouse were ommited from cheaper variants. You should be able to use the card with your new/repaired 5153 after you get that working as well...

            If you don't end up getting I'll claim it.

              You are next on the list if CC_333 decides that he does not want it.

                  I'll take it! I might also take the other #21 card, if it's still available.

                  If I can get a VGA card to work, I have a couple older VGA monitors form the 90s I can use until I get a new 5153 (the one I have is pretty much beyond repair, I'm afraid).

                    I think I accidentally deleted my last post :/

                    Anyway, I'll take the ATI Wonder and the other #21 card, if you still have it.

                    PM me either here or over on the 68k MLA so we can get started

                        I can confirm that #21 does not appear to work on an IBM XT (I bought one and tested it) Card itself is functional (tested on later machine) but causes the XT to beep with the video card problem beep (1 long and 2 short) XT does not beep with my CGA card installed. Tried a whole bunch of different jumper configurations with no change whatsoever.

                        Still, seller is 10/10. Packed well, shipped quick, all of that. This forum really needs a seller rating system =P

                            How do you have the motherboard sw1 #5 and #6 set? See Here. For VGA they must both be on. But for CGA, one of them is on and the other is off depending whether you want it to start in 40 column or 80 column mode.

                              They were incorrectly set the first time, now they're both on, still same long beep followed by two short beeps. I also have a Trident TVGA 9000i-1 and it also does not work in my XT. XT also had an Xebec or whatever HDD controller, thought that might be the problem (resource conflict?) took it out, same issue. Took every card out, just the VGA card in, still same. Le sigh. Although interestingly, the TVGA 8900CL-B I bought from OP does not seem to match any layout I've found on the internet when it comes to jumpers. Maybe its this revision -B that is just XT incompatible. The below picture is not how I had it jumpered when I tested it, just took them all out for illustration. I had J10 and J2 open, the rest shorted (People seemed to say that all of J9 should be shorted) I tried a bunch of different jumper configurations (but certainly not all permutations)
