Re: Post pics of your CRT monitors

I guess I've never posted in this thread yet, despite the fact that I have many CRTs. Current set up with Samsung SyncMaster 763MB. Fantastic monitor, original owner apparently barely used it before upgrading to an LCD. And it shows, as it is by far the brightest monitor I own. https://i.imgur.com/ …

Re: Toshiba Satellite Pro 430CDT

This is so especially important with laptops because a lot of them are intricately put together. Not quite true, I disassembled more than 50 laptops and in only one case I needed a service manual. Laptops are no more complicated than desktop computers. I should have probably indicated that what I …

Re: Toshiba Satellite Pro 430CDT

Definitely, if you do a repair/disassembly of that Dell P150ST, write up a detailed account of it. :) A lot of the service manual's for laptops are quite good, but I do find often that they do not show enough pictures (or if they have pictures, they are not nearly detailed enough), or other written …

Re: Bought these (retro) software/OS today

Nice! Old Linux distro's are something I've not yet explored, and feel like I probably should. Also that Walnut Creek CD-ROM ... heh... reminds me that there was apparently a Walnut Creek CD-ROM with the DJGPP toolchain and a bunch of related tools (NASM, RHIDE, etc), libraries (Allegro) and …

Re: My Tyan-based Super Socket 7 build

I ended up with the same problem as you with regards to cable management in my build that uses this same motherboard. I really like the motherboard, but I decided that as long as I was using a baby AT case, that using the AGP slot was maybe not the best idea due to how all the ribbon cables plug in …

Re: What’s in your Garage ?

in Milliways
I mean there are a few BVMs for sale here right now... in the range from €700 to €3000 so yeah... no, hence why they are still for sale ^^ I pretty much already asked all people I know in production environments and they made the switch away from CRTs ages ago, I really went into this too late. …

Re: What’s in your Garage ?

in Milliways
I also horde PVMs (though mine are not as nice as some of yours!). Except I don't have a garage, I instead live in a ~700sq ft apartment downtown in a city. My other not-in-current-use computer stuff is kinda spread out here and there (couple closets, and a couple small overflow piles here and …
