    Help finding software post on this site

    Somewhere on this forum was software to download that speeds up the first access of a large CF card in XTIDE controllers. Like a dummy I didn't download it right away thinking I would investigate later. The post was made perhaps a few months ago. Well, no matter how I search this forum I can't...

    Thoughts on emulation using vintage hardware

    It's some kind of custom switch type. The picture below is one of the keyboard internals pulled from one the EX systems. Sorry about the image quality. I had to compress this image down to 83K just so the forum software would allow it to upload.

    Thoughts on emulation using vintage hardware

    I ran across this eBay listing: https://www.ebay.com/itm/392922964142 (The $5000 asking price is nuts by the way) It's a TRS-80 model III that has been modified to use a RaspPI for motherboard emulation, an Arduino to remap the original keyboard, and a custom video adapter from HDMI to analog...

    Uploading images not working for me

    I have a JPG image that is 207KB in size. When I try to include it in a message I'm told the size of 431KB exceeds the 256KB max limit. The file is 207KB in size. Why is the file being seen as 431KB when in fact it's 207KB?

    Site very slow

    When the update first happened I noticed the site was a little slower but nothing major. Today, when I click on something, more often than not I'm greeted with a yellow box at the top of the screen with "Working" inside of it. After that it will take anywhere from 10 to 30 seconds for something...

    ERRORLEVEL using batch files

    Does anyone know of a site that contains DOS commands that were specifically used in DOS batch files to return ERRORLEVEL values? For instance, FINDRAMD.COM that is included on WIN95/98 CDs returns an ERRORLEVEL value corresponding to the drive letter of a RAM drive if one is present...
