ADZ has higher temperature rating I think, how long will it take 7 volts on LN2 though? 🤣

yeap, I got that one to tinker and push it and the other one to "treasure it" 😜
Surely nothing spectacular around here, but hey, it was my first retro-purchase!

Added a Yamaha MU50 to the Midi Stack

I see a GMega LX in your MIDI stack. Never seen one of those. I guess the sounds are exactly the same as in the normal GMega?

Bought a MiTAC IH4077H board that needs a lot of things done (battery removal, corrosion removal, trace repairs, and other things) for a fair price.

Any chance you came across BIOS++ for this board? :)

Manage to get the official modem for the compaq presario cds 5xx series.

Its not an isa card as can you see, it uses a proprietary connector.

A few delightfully average I/O cards, the IDE/SATA adapters could come in handy.
Didn't know firewire was still a thing.

Firewire is a bit the same as SCSI is for me, I've got like one thing of each interface type, speed and generation and getting them to talk to each other is challenging.

First time I seent a desktop wifi card with internal antenna connectors though.

Tried the wifi now and it really needs that antenna, signal strength is crap without it.
I thought firewire got extinct when Intel decided to support the USB standard.

Edit: why are my photos flipped all the time?

You need to edit your photos and rotate them to be correct. GIMP is good for this if you don't already have another editing program.

A lot of times when I take pics with my phone, the rotation ends up being incorrect by default.

Thanks for the tip, it works.

You could find an antenna in a busted up laptop, or some wifi routers are connected like that internally, if they don't have removable antennas, they probably have a "bit of wire" one stuffed up the plastic shell with that end plugged into the board. Later WRT54G/L etc were like that. Also one or two android TV boxes I've been in had an internal "patch" antenna taped inside the case using that connector. Might be worth checking any e-waste with wifi really, since I've also seen it in some early android tablets that used a miniPCI wifi card.

I think Apple kept firewire on life support for a while, for the video professionals market that had it in higher end cameras.
