Re: Frys electronics is Closing.

I came late to Fry's. When I moved to....dare I say it, Reno in 2018, part of the perk of living there was being able to visit Fry's on my way to and from our travels to see family in California. I've been to San Jose, I think Vacaville, and another one off of 680 somewhere. San Jose was my favorite …

Re: poor advice on fixing things!

To be honest people want a solution immediately and they don't want to bother with an extensive search about the problem. When they have to work for it they get frustrated. Most people can't even use Google Search properly. Just 30 years ago people actually had to visit libraries, purchase user …

Re: Any others given up on the hobby?

Reading this thread is like the collective echo chamber of thoughts in my head. I'm 38, and I've been messing with this stuff for over 20 years, I may even be one of the first if not the first PC compatible collectors around. On the subject of quitting, I'll never quit. I've quit twice already, both …

Re: muti boot idea for windows 3.x

For Windows 3.1 Memory issue prevention I've used a program called 1MBfort for about 2 going on 3 decades now. Seems to do the trick. I've got a Windows 3.1 installation right now that saw regular use for the past 5 years and I have yet to get a single "out of memory" error message in it, and I'm …

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

I love researching things down to minute details, a lot. So that's kind of why I'm such an obsessee on a platform or genre or brand or model of machine for a long period of time. Right now I'm being highly intrigued by the less popular i486 based laptops so I'm wrapping up all the lose ends on the …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

Been doing more tuning/tweaking to my LInux boxes, decided to retire BeigeBeast as I'm having problems getting audio drivers in LInux Mint. So I moved back to my i5 based Dell - but put the video card from beigebeast in there, and the 1TB HDD with some "redneck engineering". Need as much power and …

Re: DOSBox vs PCem vs 86Box which do you prefer?

I tend to stick with DOSBox just because that's what I'm familiar with. I have my Linux installs setup to allow me to click on an EXE and run it in DOSBox if it's a known DOS Program. Which is a nice convenience when I'm auditing software that I store on my 1TB second HDD where all the DOS and early …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

Took a break from the Versas for awhile (I have those tuned up greatly), forgot what a beast the ol InWin Desktop is. So I brought out my LInux machines this weekend...a Lenovo ThinkPad T61 road warrior, and the "BeigeBeast"......here's the quick specs.... IBM ThinkPad T61p - Intel Core 2 Duo 2.1GHz …
