    New Tandy 1000 RLX

    Picked this up a few weeks ago. 1000 RLX with original keyboard, mouse, printer and VGM 220. Plugged it in and bad things happened. High pitched squeal, smoke, burning plastic smell, the usual. I thought the power supply had died, but it was the monitor. Now I just need to change the battery and...

    Seagate ST351A/X jumper settings

    I have a Seagate ST351A/X from a dead Tandy 1000 RLX. I want to put it in a P4 and see if it works and image it if it does. I can find a dozen versions of the jumper settings to put it in AT mode, but they all have options for "bus reset high" and "bus reset low". Any ideas on what this should...

    New way to get DRM free games

    They only have six titles available now (three are STALKER games) but the way it works is that you put in the CD key from your boxed copy of the game and they will add the DRM free version to your games library and then you can download it. More titles coming soon. http://www.gog.com/reclaim

    HP Vectra VE 6/350

    Not vintage, but the local thrift store had it so I grabbed it. It's pretty clean, and looks like it's been upgraded with more RAM and a second hard drive. Haven't had a chance to plug it in and fire it up, should get to it this weekend.

    Cpu id

    Found a pair of odd ones while going through a box of random CPUs and heat sinks. Sorry about the bigger one, it seem permanently attached to the heat sink. Maybe somebody can recognize it by the pattern of the pins. I know the small one is DEC, but from what? The heat sink was actually bolted...

    Long slot covers

    I found these going through a bag of slot covers and connectors. I knew that a lot of the early AT cards were too tall to fit into an XT case, but I thought that the slots themselves were the same heights. Did I miss something during the 286 era?

    An ebay how-not-to guide

    Well, I had $0.87 in ebay bucks to spend, and some time to kill, so I went trolling through the "Everything Else" section of ebay, looking for something I could buy for $0.87. My Paypal account is dry, so $1.50 was my upper limit. :) I know that ebay likes to nag when you do a listing about how...

    Found a pair of Packard Bells

    Went to an estate sale today, came home with two Packard Bells, a Legend 386X and a Legend 650X. The 650X works, the 386X does not, so I took it apart and took some pictures of both. Packard Bell porn, anyone?. :) They also had an AST 486 but I was out of time and money, so I had to leave it...

    Anybody ever buy anything on Etsy?

    Prices seem a bit high (but then I'm cheap, so...) anyway this looks nice: http://www.etsy.com/listing/150365771/texas-instruments-home-computer-994a?ref=br_feed_29&br_feed_tlp=vintage-category I had one of the silver ones back in the day, never saw one like this.

    Alloy Computer Products NTNX

    I'm clearing out more stuff and trying out Imagedisk at the same time. One of the things in the pile is an installation guide and two sets of disks for NTNX from Alloy. No hardware, just disks and manual. From Wikipedia: "In 1984 Alloy developed the PC-Slave card which consisted of an X86 (8086...
