Good find ! Last year found a bunch of Atrend and other manuals in WPC and other old formats. Some were even BitFax raw files 🤣

Hate posting a reply and then have to edit it because it made no sense 😁 First computer was an IBM 3270 workstation with CGA monitor.

Gah yeah, PC Chips is bad for that, find their old manuals and it's a .doc, but that could be a plain text file, a wordpad/rtf doc or a word for windows 5 or 6 document, and it's as bad as putting in a USB you have to try three times until you get the right one. Fax format, heh long time since I've seen that, used to be a mid 90s thing, how stuff got online when the manufacturer didn't have a website yet, TIFF files I remember, but there was a couple of others.

Unicorn herding operations are proceeding, but all the totes of hens teeth and barrels of rocking horse poop give them plenty of hiding spots.

I think it's a good idea to just convert such old things to PDF when you can, and upload to archive.org or send to UH19 or something.

evasive and I tried to convert some old odd formatted Word+ early .ppt manuals for UH19 but never totally succeeded on a few of them. One was the ATC-1535 which seemed to be a Word doc but had odd wingdings that could not be replicated.... iirc

Ok after conversion and running through Acrobat 6 Pro was able to create a 1.3Mb PDF without loosing much detail, much smaller than the full 7Mb conversion.
There is a scan error on page 45 where you cannot read a full sentence of text. It exists in the .djvu file and cannot be corrected.
Good find ! The original plain ATC-6240M manual, not the V updated versions.

Maybe evasive or deksor will add it to UH19 (I seem to have lost my login ugh!)

Great find! I actually own that motherboard version, too! (Needs a bit of repair, though.)

Computer in my collection that had too much work done is... Compaq Armada 1573DM!

- Original DSTN panel replaced with an HPA panel (now gone)
- Left hinge repaired twice
- Front panel replaced thrice
- Replaced busted inverter
- Chassis replacement

Iam using that board in my new Pentium II build.. Iam busy on it. Things running, but need another scsi cable and find some solution to cool my Seagate Cheetah 36GB LVD Ultra 3 10.000RPM drive.
Which its running on a Adaptec AHA2940uw2 controller.
