Re: Toshiba Satellite Pro 430CDT

Hi dinth! Sorry to hear about all the troubles you've gone through with this! :'( Here's the link to all of the photos I took during disassembly (plus a bunch more from before and after), but I don't think there is anything in there that will help you beyond what I already shared in the first post …

Re: Retro Development

in Milliways
Would love to see some forum for people interested in this to talk about it (whether that's here on Vogons, or elsewhere). There have been topics about it here in the past, like what pan069 linked, but they get drowned out by other discussions. Understandably, as there are definitely more people …

Re: Do you keep your retro rigs offline?

I keep my retro machines hooked up to my home network, and they can access the internet, yes, but there is no point in doing so. The only reason I keep them hooked up on my home network is to make the transfer of files to/from them easier.

I just took my tape measure out again to triple-check and there's absolutely no way I can reasonably tilt the measurer or just measure it "differently" somehow to chop a full inch off of …

Re: Post pics of your CRT monitors

Jeez that glass stand gives me anxiety. Not to worry. The manufacturer rates it for 60 lbs. The monitor + speakers combined are about 43-44 lbs at most (haven't weighed the speakers actually, but they are very light, guessing that combined they are only a few pounds). Also I think Klw2 maybe made a …
