Yes that's the point.. It don't work that way

Are my questions to the seller public? as I ask them why he calls it loaded without a Flex Card, and inform him that he'd be better off selling the 2 extra 32k cards separate. 

 

And the 'reviews' confuse me... they sound like product reviews for other products... so maybe they are supposed to be seller reviews?  I've lost touch with how community works on ebay.

OK, thanks for saving me from more research :)  Back to looking for a SAMS, or such, card.  I have a list here somewhere with the one I wanted.  Had lots of features :)

SAMS is the one you want. 1mb and the base 32k

Please, correct me.  I thought having multiple 32k expansion cards didn't do any good?  Or was RAM paging built in somehow.  Going to have to go researching again, but I could swear that the only way to get more was with the cards that did their own paging.

I'm sorry for combining a humorous find with the serious, even separating the tongue-in-cheek one, it wasn't my intent to mislead that the first link was valid configuration.

I forget there are some welcome new members that might not catch my eBay sarcasm. ;-)

The seller decides whether individual questions people ask are listed publicly or not ... and yes the reviews are about the seller's track history, but may not have anything to do with the sale category they appear on

Cool, thanks. I like to ask them questions when their listings don't make sense.

You're welcome, Matt.. I try to ask questions of the sellers before I post the links here to what I think are things the community may be interested in. If sellers don't reply with details or I discern I'm dealing with a collector that has simply no idea what they are selling, I not only won't bid/buy but I won't put AA members through the pain of having to get the info themselves.

Interesting concept... TI Server?

Ya know... I wonder... what if... someone had made made a TI to TI Server Card for the P-Box back in the day?

 

Let's see....

1) A server card for the P-Box with WiFi-like capability.

2) A WiFi-like add-on for the then 32K sidecar or internal modification.

 

One TI could have served multiple TI's wirelessly.  Back in the day, that would have been so cool when many of us still used the TI as our primary system and even had a lesser unit in a different room of the house.  It would have saved a few bucks and encouraged further development.  Oh what could have been.  :)

 

Now day's we'll have TIPI and all the yet unknown places it'll take us!  :thumbsup:

This is true.  It has been a closely-guarded secret for many decades that all electronics actually run on magic smoke.  If you let that smoke out they stop working.

1986 variant? Seems like it should be 384KB, but a little hard to count stack ups in the pictures.

So I decided to sell my Geneve board as I never got the time to actually learn how to use it. I had acquired it 2 years in a non-functional state the the Chicago Faire and fixed and upgraded it with the help of Tim.
I'm not a collector, and if I don't use something, I either donate it or sell it so at least someone else might benefit from my stuff.
I posted the auction on Ebay eBay Auction -- Item Number: itm/152922192157?ssPageName=STRK:MESOX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1559.l2649, and litterally 10 seconds later someone buys it and pays for it! Wow! Never seen that before :)

You just never know. I've posted stuff at the same price I paid for it and didn't get a bid then other times I got three times what I paid.
