Got a new vintage camera; it's my late grandpa's Edixa Standard.

Nothing rare or mindblowing, but a neat little entry-level SLR from the 50s. It comes with an intact leather case, a big leather box for all the extra stuff and even the interachangeable waist-level viewfinder -- which is nice if, like me, you wear glasses and have trouble properly seeing through a prism viewfinder. Everything was neatly wrapped and labled by my grandpa too.

Loving that board, I have 2 of them 😀

Good point. I have one original Gorb and one clone. Haven't looked at how close the clone is.

That said, I'll only start hacking away at my orbs if I'm sure I'll be keeping the system long-term

Quake3, what else?

Good question. Q3A was the only SMP-capable game from this era, and I'm no Q3A fan (too slow for it, even back in 1999, now far, far too slow), plus two Celerons are pretty underpowered for it anyway. Maybe dig up a copy of BeOS and watch the teapot slow down or speed up as I disable/enable CPUs on the fly.

There were a few other SMP games. Falcon 4 comes to mind.

Nice ! How much did the ST05X cost you ? Somewhere in my storage I have a few real 8bit IDE and SCSI HD cards but never found a working ST05x yet. You should save the BIOS files and upload them here if possible, last ST05x I saw was missing the BIOS chip so was useless since no BIOS files existed at the time....

First computer was an IBM 3270 workstation with CGA monitor. 🤣

Robin4 can you scan or take good photos of the juko ide controller's manual?
I have a lose one but never got it working and I suspect it's the jumper settings...
Thanks!

Decided to go ahead and get one of these for my ZX81:

Also going to get one of these to go with it:

🤣

Or I suppose I could hot glue the thing, but Blu Tack is much easier to clean off at a future date.

Yesterday, I bought a PIII-S 1.4/512/1.45V Tualatin processor for $13 on eBay and the day before, a new Harley Davidson twin engine Hallmark Christmas ornament from 2000 to replace the broken one (repairs were attempted, but the motor seized up and wouldn't move). Do Christmas ornaments count from the past 19 years count?

Eh, close enough. It's a retro turntable, correct? My dad had a Kenwood turntable and has an Ion USB turntable for digitizing records for iTunes.

^^ it's a shame S3 Metal Crossfire was never a thing or that would make a pretty neat card for Unreal. BTW this reminds me I have to go check my PO box... 😉

Is that one GPU per display output? Showing as two separate cards?

It should be one GPU per output yes, but I wonder that myself, if they'll just work in DOS or need special drivers... the Trios are labeled master/slave at the back, haven't found a manual yet.

Nice. Do you still use analog camera's and if so why?
