Re: Neat article about one of the last floppy disk businesses.

I'm not against any kind of legal business, but when someone tries to sell me something at a more than twice a market price and calls it "SALE"... No, thank you. 🙂 The Amiga hardware scene is way worse, maybe. It doesn't charge for an arm and a leg, but both pairs of them. :D Well, when someone …

My guess is the cards have a low quality analog output that shows the vertical banding on LCD monitors, but may have been unnoticeable on old CRT monitors of that time period. The only ISA card I have that looks good on a LCD is …
