Re: Retro OSes for retro computers

being forked from something is literally being based on it Nah, not necessarily. A little depends on meaning. BSD originally borrowed code from AT&T UNIX, but any vestigial relationship is long gone subsequent to the 1994 settlement between USL and BSDI. You can't really say it's AT&T UNIX based …

Re: Intel 440BX Slot 1 on wheels

Finally I came across a good deal for an old server case. Was it too big? Maybe.... But it had swinging doors, two 3.5" external drive bays, eight 5.25" external drive bays, lots of non-blue LEDs, an important looking lock mechanism and *wheels*! Nice case! I have a dual Coppermine BX system that …

Re: Roland MT-32 , Do I need one ?

Those are really good prices! MIDI boards never show up where I live. I bought a MOTU board a couple of years ago, although I can't remember how much I paid.

Re: Dual socket 7 build

Re: mp3

Yes, with MPXPLAY . You'll need a least a fast 486 as minimum for playing high bitrate MP3 files. Quite a few options. https://pmwiki.xaver.me/drdoswiki/index.php?n=Main.Mediaplayers#toc4 I suspect the most efficient player will be something fairly cut down such as DOSAMP. I've heard of reduced …

Re: HardMPU, anyone?

Are these HardMPU-boards cheaper than the PCMIDI from keropi? I ask because I need one or two for my PCs and I only have one PCMIDI and cannot afford another one at the moment :) Keropi's project is sweet, but these boards have no hidden special sauce burned into the GAL chips. This means you can …
