    Latest find: Ampro Little Board hidden in dual floppy drive case

    The power supply was nearly impossible to get out of the case - the case is bent by a little tiny bit at the bottom center giving just barely enough room to wiggle it out of the case again. I don't want to try to get it back in the case. I'm 75% sure I'm going to replace it with a modern...

    Latest find: Ampro Little Board hidden in dual floppy drive case

    I'm going to take back that "nicely homebuilt case" comment I made above: turns out the fake wood vinyl covered front trim was bolted to the case, but the brackets that floppy drives were screwed into were *not* bolted to the case! The brackets rested on the bottom of the case, and were attached...

    Morrow M20 with Memorex 102 20MB Hard Drive Interface to S-100?

    So I have this Morrow M20 case, inside is a Memorex 102 20MB (afaik) hard drive. It has 8" platters, a brown transparent cover over the drive platters, and probably sounds really cool when running. I was glad to see that the heads are in the locked position for shipping, so hopefully it still...
