In Topic: Commodore: The Final Years book (12 hours to go on Kickstarter)

Amiga Trilogy?  I bought the first Commodore book from Amazon and liked it, and was awaiting "the Amiga book,."  Never happened.  How many books are there?


In Topic: retr0(ultra)bright on a STFM

Sat May 12, 2018 11:45 PM

On the ST you cannot use CREME conditioner, you have to use the CLEAR.  I have done dozens and they turn out ok.  Creme can cause blooming and ruins it.  Also do NOT use saran wrap, that can cause streaks.  Simply brush it on with a fine brush and reapply ever 15 min or so while out in the hot sun!  2-3 hours is enough time.

 

Can you post a link or a picture of the product that you have been using, successfully?

 

This place (a nationwide chain, I think)....

....is the only place I know to get the conditioner, as obviously I'm not a regular shopper of beauty supplies.  Is that where you found the clear?


In Topic: Repairing a 410 drive

Sat May 12, 2018 11:25 PM

Working on 410s in something I hope to get to, one day. Despite its many flaws, it has a special place in my heart, as my first ever computer peripheral. I'm curious about the rubber wheels. Are you encountering these in the older version or the newer version of the 410?

Amazing how retrocomputing (or any hobby) is mutually exclusive to family.  Breaking news!  Who knew?

 


..or just sensibly moderate your behavior.

 

Exactly.


In Topic: The technical history of the PC. Any good books?

Sat May 5, 2018 5:47 PM

Not sure, but could see it being included in a book titled: Shitty Tech That Managed To Win Over The Mainstream. :lol:

 

....And Also Managed To Win Over The [Formerly Superior Power PC] Macintosh And Eventually The Two Prominent Game Consoles As Well.

 

Now that's a title!
