    UPDATE: Please see my post here for information about contacting me, and my schedule this weekend (6/10/2011)... I barely spend any time fiddling with my vintages anymore, and space has become an issue since my wife and I moved into the city. I have decided it is time to part with the...

    5x Tandy 4000's on eBay auction

    Not mine... I just saw the listing and thought I'd pass it along. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150616453185&ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:US:1123 They claim to have 5 of these units. The BIN is ridiculous, but they do have "Make Offer" available, so who knows how low they'd be...

    IBM 7534 EGA Industrial Monitor (Pictures)

    I was asked a while back to post pictures of my IBM EGA Industrial monitor. I finally got around to take some pictures, so I'm posting them on here for reference... The monitor is paired to my Tandy 1000 TL/2 with an EGA card. I had Flight Simulator 4.0 running in 640x350 EGA mode in the...

    WTB: IBM PS/1 Audio/Joystick Option Card and monitor (for 2011 and 2121 models)

    Recently acquired an IBM PS/1 2121 machine and I'm looking for the Audio and Joystick option card made for these machines. An option is to install an ISA Sound Blaster card, but I'd really like to use the internal audio. Although I received a whole machine, the monitor suffered a shipping...

    [not mine] Clean IBM 5150 and 5155 (same seller, separate auctions)

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-Personal-IBM-Computer-5150-1981-1987-/230547252449?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35adafe4e1 and http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-IBM-Portable-Computer-/230547252433?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35adafe4d1 IMO, those seem like decent BIN and shipping fees. The 5150...

    Fixes for Tandy sound in games with non-Tandy graphics

    Many games give the option of graphics and sound separately, so having an EGA or VGA graphics card installed is a non-issue if you still wish to enjoy the wonderful Tandy 3-voice sound. However, it seems that some games will only properly work with Tandy sound when Tandy graphics is chosen as...

    Tandy music on Lemmings with EGA graphics

    Before I installed an EGA card on my TL/2, Lemmings played in all of its Tandy 3-voice music glory. Since installing EGA, Lemmings will only play sounds, no music. Any ideas why? Is the the Tandy graphics version of Lemmings the only one that loads up the Tandy 3-voice sound/music support...
