Pinned toot

I am quite happy with this setup. I just need to get a C128 down here and I'll be good....

On the web, you can do other stuff while reading an article. On a BBS, get distracted and it will kick your ass off!

I'm finding that if you try to expand an existing exFAT partition with most common disk tools, only the crimson tears of a thousand despairs await you.
If you need exFAT, better to create a new partition of the size you need to wind up with, then copy everything from the old one to the newly created one.

Yeah, I'll admit that sometimes there's not a lot of substance in some of my posts, but visuals...

This one might be the most fun of all. Z80 CP/M running in a window at just over 18Mhz on Amiga Workbench.

Unfortunately, this one doesn't photograph as easily, but it's quite usable.

This is what's doing the heavy lifting here, using a Raspberry Pi as intermediary...

Doing some work on the non-gate array model 4 earlier today.

Sometimes the video would shrink & grow after the machine's heated up, like there's a loose connection, or maybe a bad solder joint.

Solder joints seem solid. Seems to have been the connector on the ribbon connecting the video board to the PS and main board. The card edge connector that the ribbon connects to (at the video board end) was really dirty and fairly loose.

It's literally whatever the mood dictates.
ZWave RGB bulbs are a great thing!

The start of the night that's the end of the year...Intellivision on a big screen -with original controllers-!

This happened to me a couple of years ago. It's only happened once in 30-ish years, but I keep a stock of them on hand now, just in case.

Not all revs of the board have a fuse there, but mine does.

Protip:
If the mouse on your Amiga 2000 suddenly quits working, check for +5V missing on the mouse/joystick ports (pin 7).

If you don't find +5V on pin 7, check for one of these fuses (which happens to not look like a fuse) on the board up near the joystick ports, and if you find one, check it for continuity. It's quite possible that it's blown and will need te be replaced.

Back in business!

You can hardly tell it was ever broken unless you get right up to the back side of the tree in daylight.

This was surprisingly satisfying for something so low-tech.
