#4052529 The technical history of the PC. Any good books?

Posted by dafivehole on Tue Jun 19, 2018 2:40 PM

Fire in the Valley is a really good read... they (very loosely) made into a movie, The Pirates of Silicon Valley.

#3883753 Atari 130XE Power Switch Stuck?

Posted by dafivehole on Sat Nov 4, 2017 5:18 PM

UPDATE: I finally got my switches from jolly ol' England today.  I put the new one in and it works like a champ  :grin:   All (320K) memory tests good too... 

 

Thank you,

Roger




#3872216 Is a vintage PC worth it these days?

Posted by dafivehole on Fri Oct 20, 2017 8:13 AM

Yes, totally worth it.  I have an IBM 5170 as well as a 486, P1 and P2 setups... no issues whatsoever with any of these and they were all acquired extremely inexpensively.

#3751789 Original Wii with Home Brew Channel & apps - $75 shipped obo

Posted by dafivehole on Sat Apr 29, 2017 6:57 AM

eBay removed my listing while allowing many, many others to remain active  :mad:   I know, it's a conspiracy  :_(

 

Anyway, I'm selling an original Wii with all original boxes, manuals, cables, Wii Sports game, etc. plus an SD card with the NES and SNES emulators.  There are other "things" on the SD card that I can elaborate upon via a private message.  The only thing missing is the Wii-mote and numchuk.  I can provide pics if you really need them... everything is already boxed up since it was on eBay and they deleted all of my pictures.  $75 shipped anywhere in the US.  If you don't like the price, please make an offer.  I'll place it on Craigslist tomorrow afternoon if there's no interest.  Thank you!




#3750953 Atari 1200XL w/PSU and dust cover - SOLD

Posted by dafivehole on Thu Apr 27, 2017 6:56 PM

You get the 1200XL, Atari PSU and a vintage home made dust cover.  Memory tests good, cartridge slot (see picture of ROTJ game playing), sound tests good but the keyboard has issues.  Some keys work, some do not... I believe that this is typical of these 1200XL units.  I'm sure that this is an easy fix but I don't have the time for it.  I will package with care.  If you have any questions, please ask.  SOLD.  Thank you!

Picking this up locally tomorrow... kind of cool.  Has anyone ever seen something like this before?

 

This is for Numberland Nightwatch (1983).

 

Thanks,

#3650362 Did you ever get thrown out of a computer store?

Posted by dafivehole on Wed Dec 14, 2016 10:09 AM

I got into an argument with some stranger that I was play Pac-Man against on a 2600 in Wilson's (Service Merchandise)... neither of us got thrown out but we raised some eyebrows  :D
