Re: ebay drying up?

in Milliways
Stuff older than 1996 or so seems pretty scarce to me, I find more of this era stuff in the 'to be scraped' pile at the tip. People just aren't aware that there's a market for stuff that old I guess, or they just can't be arsed listing it. I have heaps of 'saved searches' setup but they miss a lot …

Random pics from a computer mag, October 1994 edition.

in Milliways
I scored myself 10 or so 'Australian Personal Computer' mags on eBay, circa 1993/4. This was my personal golden age for computing so I'm having a ball with them, and thought I'd share a few pics. These are mostly just ads from the October 1994 issue - check out those prices! (aussie dollars). No …

Re: Wing Commander 1/2 joystick issue...

Mau1wurf1977, you're the ultimate campaigner for the 'cache dis-abler' cause - love it! Personally I have a bee in my bonnet about using the period specific hardware but using a Pentium makes a lot of sense, I've found countless P1's during my old hardware savaging. Dunno the history of them, but …

Re: 486 Time Machine Build

OK the cache I ordered for this ASUS VL/I-486SV2GX4 has arrived so I'm ready to start playing around. One thing that bothers me (it's superficial and it shouldn't) is that during the POST, the list of details on the screen include "IPEX blah blah". IPEX is the name of the company who put this PC …

Re: The 486 I just built

Cool, can we have some pictures? I like to see what old cases people come up with. The DX266 is such a great chip, perfect for 1994 era games. With regard to that Diamond Stealth 24 - how does it look? Using 3dbench I determined that it's the fastest of the VLB cards I have (compared to a Tseng …

386 revival

An old PC I rescued from the tip recently was sporting a nice little 386DX40 motherboard - one of those soldered-on-chip deals. Unfortunately the battery had leaked and although it did POST, it wouldn't recognise the keyboard. With sadness I decided it was toast and hung it on the wall of my outside …

Re: Voodoo question. Warning - ignorance on display.

I like the 'voodoo 5 as the main card' option - less is more. And this is a P3 system aimed at games in the 97-2000 era, so the V5 is about the right age. There's one selling locally for about 70 bucks, but I don't usually spend that much on my retro bits. Also, I would be bumping a Geforce2 Ultra …
