    A flake to avoid on ebay

    That thought crossed my mind as well but most of the time his English seemed good. I got a lot of "old man" vibes off him. I know this sounds kinda unrealistic but I almost got the feeling that he was just an old guy that never touched a computer before. I feel like he bought my 386 not actually...

    WTB: twistless floppy cable and 3 1/2 floppy drive set to D0 for Tandy 1000

    So I'm looking to upgrade my Tandy 1000SX with a 720k 3 1/3 floppy drive to compliment the 360k 5 1/4 drive but I've had no luck untwisting my own cables. I keep getting general read errors and the such and I'm not sure if it's my floppy drive or my apparent sub-par ability to modify a floppy...

    Orchard Tiny Turbo question

    I recently acquired an Orchard Tiny Turbo 8088 to 286 accelerator. I've read a few places that this card is incompatible with the Tandy 1000 line. My question is, is the incompatibility due to the placement of the CPU socket on the tandy motherboard making the Tiny Turbo's cable far too short to...

    Wanted: lower bezel to a apple IIe color composite monitor

    installing a DF0 selector in an amiga 2000

    ok, so I bought a DF0 selector off AMIGAstore.eu some time ago to install in my amiga 2000 so I could select between my internal floppy drive and an external floppy emulator (to keep the origional look on the desktop). The instructions I found seem to be for an Amiga 500 where your supposed to...

    The Amiga 2000 only outputs monchrome via the composite jack?

    I just wanted to confirm this but does the Amiga 2000 only output monochrome via the rear composite jack? I wanted to do some simple video capturing via composite from my A2000 but all I was getting was a B/W signal. The Amiga is NTSC and not PAL. To firm this I even connected it up to a...

    WTB: anyone have any NEC VC SDRAM for sale?

    looking for NEC VC-SDRAM of any size. I think only NEC produced this RAM and it looks just like PC100/133. It was supposed to be a sort of competitor to RDRAM and DDR and was only supported by VIA Apollo PRO 133/133A and KX133 chipsets AFAIK. I was able to find this image of a stick...
