I'm on the internet! Well SDF's COM chat at least. 🤔
I got my CoCo SDC from Zippster today and it works great. My first computer (COCO2) is going to get a lot more use now because of this thing. Just copy .DSK files to the sd card and you can mount them with out fuss. Even multi-disk OS9 SIERIA games work with out issue. The firmware lets you manipulate the images right from the CoCo so it doesn't need to be hooked to a PC or anything.
The coco's radioactive green looks glorious on a 55" LG 4K TV 😆
Well I now have 1345 wikipedias and lots of news. 😀
After fixing a power issue the dreamcatcher seems very stable. Cheap USB phone chargers wont cut it. After fixing that its run few months now with no more reboots or hangs.
My Othernet Dreamcatcher showed up. Its a SDR that picks up the project's satellite data and audio feed and builds up a local library.
Works good. So far I have 1 wikipedia 😆
Playing more with modems over SIP. I have 300/1200 working very well in to the SDF dialup line. So I decided to just set the modem to max speed and let the chips fall where they may.
It did not go well. 😆
My latency (Im on LTE) to my SIP service is
--- sip.anveo.com ping statistics ---
25 packets transmitted, 25 packets received, 0.0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 69.469/142.080/296.463/65.996 ms
My plan was to use my mini staycation to clean and organize. Hasn't been going well because I keep coming across forgotten things I want to play with. One of those things is a Z80 "softcard". Popped a CP/M image and kermit on my SDfloppy II and it fired right up. I was soon reminded of the reason I never got much use out of it. It can't seem to deal with anything faster then 300baud on the serial port with out dropping bits. 🤔
If you collect old phones or computers with modems then I consider having one of these old Panasonic "key" PBX system's a must. 308, 616, 824 all work out of the box with no programing and even support rotary dial. They can be found cheap/free abandoned in many telco closets now that everyone is VOIP
Having fun tinkering with old computers, old cars, old telco gear and any other junk i find. 8bit4life
