Re: Hey Vogonians, what are your other hobbies?

in Milliways
I dabble a bit in astrophotography though I've been a bit too busy with other things this year. Here is a picture of Saturn I took a few years back ( details ): saturn.png This is mildly amazing to me. Could you describe the equipment needed.to produce a picture like that. I used a "cheap" …

Re: Does modern printer works for retro computers?

in DOS
I can print to my LaserJet 4100 via NetWare from DOS, OS/2, Classic Mac, Windows 3.x, 9x, NT, etc. Its not exactly a modern printer (made in 2001) but if it has any special support for these older operating systems I'm not using it. What it does have is a network port and an understanding of …

Re: C-Kermit for Windows v10 beta

Re: NetWare, fire phasers!

in Milliways
The windows client plays a WAV file . I don't know what OS/2 does. I don't think the Mac client runs login scripts so no phasers there. If you want more NetWare info, I've accumulated a pile of screenshots and notes while exploring it in depth several months back including the clients for DOS, …

Re: Pc printers get worse and worse

in Milliways
Novell Network Print Services were very popular back in 1990’s Works pretty well too - just map ("capture") an LPT port to the network print queue using this fancy GUI, the login script, or the DOS capture tool, and whatever you send to the LPT port goes via netware and comes out the printer.
