Re: Post pics of your CRT monitors

Just double checked my Sony with a tape.. 15.5" maybe they had some different cases? That's interesting, haha. I just took my tape measure out again to triple-check and there's absolutely no way I can reasonably tilt the measurer or just measure it "differently" somehow to chop a full inch off of …

Re: Post pics of your CRT monitors

Jeez that glass stand gives me anxiety. Not to worry. The manufacturer rates it for 60 lbs. The monitor + speakers combined are about 43-44 lbs at most (haven't weighed the speakers actually, but they are very light, guessing that combined they are only a few pounds). Also I think Klw2 maybe made a …

Re: Programming on DOS/Windows 95/98

I bounce around a bit with what I program in on my retro computers. For me this is 486 DX2 and Pentium MMX systems. Right now, I primarily have separate on-going projects in both Turbo Pascal 7 and Watcom C. Turbo Pascal 7 of course has it's own included IDE which is awesome, but for Watcom C …

This took forever to arrive, but it finally did. Everything coming out of the U.S. has been super slow to arrive for me (still waiting on a couple things since May), but anything coming from any other part of the world seems to still arrive within a reasonable amount of time. Meh. Oh well. https:// …

Re: Post pics of your CRT monitors

I guess I've never posted in this thread yet, despite the fact that I have many CRTs. Current set up with Samsung SyncMaster 763MB. Fantastic monitor, original owner apparently barely used it before upgrading to an LCD. And it shows, as it is by far the brightest monitor I own. https://i.imgur.com/ …

Re: Toshiba Satellite Pro 430CDT

This is so especially important with laptops because a lot of them are intricately put together. Not quite true, I disassembled more than 50 laptops and in only one case I needed a service manual. Laptops are no more complicated than desktop computers. I should have probably indicated that what I …

Re: Toshiba Satellite Pro 430CDT

Definitely, if you do a repair/disassembly of that Dell P150ST, write up a detailed account of it. :) A lot of the service manual's for laptops are quite good, but I do find often that they do not show enough pictures (or if they have pictures, they are not nearly detailed enough), or other written …

Nice! Old Linux distro's are something I've not yet explored, and feel like I probably should. Also that Walnut Creek CD-ROM ... heh... reminds me that there was apparently a Walnut Creek CD-ROM with the DJGPP toolchain and a bunch of related tools (NASM, RHIDE, etc), libraries (Allegro) and …

lol, damn, how many full editions of Microsoft productivity suites are you going for? :P Very awesome! Hope you get that copy of MS Access. For how poorly it is regarded in IT these days (and deservedly so, given how people "abused" it to create ad-hoc databases and such things running on "servers" …
