    Great deal on DSDD 5.25" diskettes

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250398776407 Standard blurb - No, not my listing. No, I don't make even $0.01 on any sales. Etc. I have been buying diskettes from this person. Even I have to admit that 100 diskettes is more than enough. So, instead of me buying more stuff...

    8050 Blues

    I have one of those dual 8050 floppy drives. I reseated lots of the chips but I still get red LED flashes over and over. I counted them. I get 4 short red flashes, with a green led when not red. A short pause and the 4 flashes goes again. The LED on the left drive flashes on and off along...

    PMs and new account default settings

    As we all know, if you are new to this forum stuff, you fail to notice that the upper right corner says UNREAD: 1. The standard default for a new account is to NOT set the " new PM popup warning ". So... people have a PM but they go days without noticing that fact. I did the same when I...

    The "Racket"

    For kicks recently I reinstalled Windows 2000 when the current OS install got trashed. I know we all talk about the Microsoft "Racket" (forcing you into upgrades you don't need or want) but it didn't seem like that big of a deal here lately. Well, Windows 2000 does everything I want or need in...

    Aging LCDS

    I know LCDs get dimmer as they age. I have a few from 2003 to prove it. Anybody know if they get dimmer if they are not used, i.e. "new old stock"? I would hate to pay a nice high price only to find that the LCD is very dim even though it was never used.

    I am not that big of a fan of Microsoft. I am not a "anti-Bill zealot" either. Microsoft finally made a product I love, MSN Explorer/Premium. The main thing I love is no matter what laptop I use (and I have a bunch), my favorites/bookmarks follow me around. I know, I could use Firefox and...

    Firewall got me AGAIN!!!

    Ok, try to remember this one! I sure can't. If you have windows file/printer sharing going and it is working perfect. Then, you change a router or anything along those lines and the sharing does NOT work anymore, IT IS THE BLEEDING FIREWALL! I just wasted about 8 hours trying to figure out...

    Epson PX-8 VFloppy revisited

    http://www.xs4all.nl/~fjkraan/comp/px8/ Turns out the the vfloppy v1.4 mentioned at the above website works perfectly with a modern linux. I have Mandriva 2008.0 freshly installed and I compiled the source for vfloppy. The main program "epspd.c" needs 2 changes to get it to compile. Just...

    While going through vintage land on ebay yesterday, someone had listed a box of marbles. I sent him a message "Think you have lost your marbles!" He obviously had it in the wrong category. That was my best joke for the whole day.

    Hmm, can Bots access the private message file contents??? If so, guess I'll have to stop putting my normal email address in those.
