Having at least one Mac in the collection can't hurt right?

...especially if that means getting a 21" Trinitron CRT with it :3c
what a massive hunk of 35kg, it's heavier than my 22" Mitsubishi by quite a bit.

Ha these, the 17" had a on-screen menu, for this one the 21" it required you to plug it into a compatible Mac (see how the VGA cord has a USB cable coming out of it?).

There also exists a graphite grey version of this one, though it's a bit tougher to find than the blue one

The multi-i/o ISA card is made for HP equipment and is desirable quality 4 layer PCB should make sensitive audio card more quieter try that experiment (buzz, pops and hums when hard drive, floppy or serial is in play ).

And this is only one of very few multi-i/o card with 4 layer PCB. Someone should make more of these 4 or 6 layers PCB ISA i/o cards.

PS: on right side, what is this model of buslogic scsi controller card? Is it good for DOS?

Cheers,

Great Northern aka Canada.

Interesting about the layers, never taught about that 😀
The model of the right card is BT-445S Rev D. You can see it on the picture even, its marked on the left end. 😀

This is not nearly all tho. But the best parts ^^
I also got a kg of ram at least, a new AT power supply, several new socket 7 heatsinks, socket 8 heatsinks, hard drives MFM, ESDI, ATA, SCSI. 5.25" floppies. joystick.
On top of the CD rom stack there is an LS-drive. So i have an LS-drive, 2 ZIP, 2 JAZ, 1 DAT, 1 DLT. I got several QIC-150 tapes, new, but have no drive for it. Now i know why the full-towers have so many 5,25" bays :p

That Vibra based sound card is kinda interesting, not special though. Some discussion here: Help me identify this Vibra 16 card

Yeah, it looks good to me tho, they talked about a OPL clone in that tread. My card has a real YMF262-M at least.

Edit:
I found 3 coast modules with the bags of ram:) and this thing, what is that?
Got it! its a protection card, for schools, to make kids not able to fuck with the computers^^

Seems similar to the so called Reborn Cards I am a bit familiar with. They were indeed intended to prevent someone hosing the install.
I should actually have a couple but I never had a use for them.

Whats missing in your collections?

After discovering that my OSSC third-party unit is not that great at above 1024x768 input (ghosting and noise), I ordered an official one from https://videogameperfection.com .

Damn you COVID-19 for making me buy a third-party unit (fast local shipping) rather than an official or Kaico built one !

Interesting! My unit could have the same issue. Were you able to characterize the problem (e.g with a test pattern)?

I did not use any test patterns yet. The ghosting and noise are almost invisible on my monitor. It is only when I tested the OSSC's output on a Datapath E1S, whith real-time zooming on preview video, that I noticed it and was able to also confirm its presence on my usual monitor . No issues are visible when the Voodoo 3 is directly connected to the monitor .

I could have tested direct VGA capture on the E1S, but the VGA cables I have are too short.

That said, if you are not going to be capturing video at above 1024×768 through the OSSC, this is practically a non issue on a 25" monitor like mine, IMHO . I am, however, too much of a perfectionist to let it slide .

EDIT:
See Re: VGA Capture Thread for some samples .

I received my new OSSC . The ghosting is still there . See this post for more details : Re: VGA Capture Thread

That joystick (or whatever it is in the second photo) looks like a sex toy..

Managed to score a Trust Korg Super Sound Module! Really happy as I've not seen one pop up on eBay yet in my time of looking. My daughterboard collection is growing nicely now.

Nice!

I only have one daughterboard - that one - and have mounted it on a Chill MIDI interface so all my PCs can share its goodness 😀

I made an estate sale purchase over the weekend of a P2B-DS fitted with dual P3-800's. Imagine my surprise after it posted up with no issues. After a night of wondering which case I should put it in, I settled on my old Lian-Li PC-65. It is still a work in progress as I need to install drives, fan extension cables, and the OS. Here's a photo of it on my lunch break.

I am considering a dual boot of 98se and 2000. Maybe some linux flavor.

No, there is a hoarder in Tønsberg who needed more space for car parts. 😁 He still has several computers, amstrad, commodore and so on. Maybe i will contact him again later x) But I got enough for now. I kinda got stuff from 3 hoarders my self so i guess i am in that league now also x)

I want a all in one computer, with all the drives and stuff i can fit. with VIA c3 nehemiah, terratech ews64 xl and voodoo 5 for ultimate flexibility . But The tower i have right now is a cheiftec dragon. Its more 2002 (or when did that come???) than 1999/2000 which i am thinking of going for. I know that came in a beige version, that would be super^^ But 6 5 1/4" bays is actually a bit to little. only the DLT takes 2 of them.
