Re: Whats the most rare piece of hardware you own?

in Milliways
I have a TEMPEST VAXstation 3100. I don't know if its truly rare (after all, I just bought this one on ebay for not very much several years back) but a VAXstation wasn't exactly something you could just buy from your local computer store and a version thats specially shielded against spying through …

Re: What is easiest/lightest mapped network drive setup for DOS?

NetWare would be the lightest - on a 386 or better with emm386 loaded and DOS 5.0+ it doesn't use any memory below the 640K line at all ( mem /c output , Client32 is the NetWare client). On anything older (8086/8088/80286, DOS 3.2-4.0) it will want somewhere around 60K of conventional memory …

Total free conventional memory is unchanged but it is 4KB lower than if I wasn't running the network client or emm386 at all. I think usually I'd have …

NetWare Client and Conventional Memory

Recently I saw some posts here on optimizing conventional memory. Somehow in my 20 years of playing around with vintage computers and DOS I don't think I'd ever used memmaker or even run the mem command. Surely that can't be right. Maybe I've just forgotten - I've not really used DOS much in the …
