  1. On second thought..............Henry, contact your seller in the US and have them file a lost mail request. In December I had to do that twice to get a shoebox sized package to get it moving to Ohio and west of Toledo. When you file a report, someone looks and says "oh shoot, look what we found" and then they move it to the next table for awhile
  2. No Luc, it is about the us postal system being totally screwed up; thank you trump buddy Dejoy and your stupid ways to save money and make the post office self sustaining.
  3. Joe there have been others who blew in over the years and then just quietly disappeared after telling us the grand things they were going to do.
  4. GOOD question; some years ago I bought a pair from somewhere and only 1 of the pair worked. So not a good buy for me at that time.
  5. You guys (and gals) need to get a good ADAM or two. I have never had all these problems with the ADAM; maybe I am just lucky. I leave data packs in drives for boot purposes, use the original printer/ps on 2 different systems setup, and have had virtually no data pack failures that I can remember. I am KEEPING my fingers crossed here!!! :-)
  6. Yes, that is the "problem" When ADAM boots, the eprom looks to see if disk drive 1, drive 2, data pack 1, or data pack 2 is in use. If not, then it boots the rom to activate the ide device. This harkens back to when the ide card was first implemented back in the 1990's. I am not sure just what is the problem, but it may have to do with booting programs after ddd 2 is locked into position by the ide card. We have observed the same problems with all ide cards available, some may or may not hamper operations of other software. When the ide card and other newer hardware were invented, they "stole" what was thought of as unused memory addresses and such, but now we find that they were not unused after all; thereby causing conflicts.

  8. Super games like Buck Rogers are on right directory tapes and most any other tape can be copied to them by using Filemanager to block copy. This would put a directory block on the right directory tape and then puts the program or data onto the right directory tape.
  9. GREAT, loved it!! THANKS
  10. Center pin #3 in the 5 pin power connector is +5
  11. and you didn't think the wife would let you have it!! Great Christmas for you!!!!
  12. I echo SHaMROCK...........................THANKS Luc and a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS SEASON TO ALL! 2021 will be better
  13. I've got 2 copies and I couldn't find a revision # on them. They are both preliminary release, as is yours. Dated 1994 which I thought kind of odd as the ADAM came out late 1983, albeit a bunch of bad ones.
  14. Well I am glad you found out what you needed. All this is beyond my wheelhouse. I am a "user" not programmer or designer. "-)
  15. They all were shrinkwrapped
