#todayInTheByteCellar I replaced the cracked case of my Tandy 1000HX with a "new" one, while in there upgraded the Siemens 8088-2 with an NEC V20, and replaced the LOUD fan with a small, quiet unit. All day, lovely project.
#todayInTheByteCellar I opened the 486-class PC and reconnected power (oops) to the CDROM drive so I could play Dark Forces again. Did a good bit of BBSing on the Amiga 1000. Wrote a blog post asking for opinions on capacitor failure.
#todayInTheByteCellar I did some BBSing on the 1000HX. It'd been a few weeks.
#todayInTheByteCellar I played two hours of Turok: Dinosaur Hunter on the N64. Never finsihed back in the day, started over tonight.
#todayInTheByteCellar I moved one of the WiFi232 modem to the Apple IIe and did a good bit of BBSing on it. Its composite display is clearer than the Tandy 1000HX's CM-5 RGB monitor, interestingly. Also played some Atari 8-bit games. New PSU for Playstation ordered.
#todayInTheByteCellar I spent a great deal of time with the Atari 130XE. It has some amazing Galaxian-like games, Galaxian itself as a title being quite notably awesome. Wizard of War was in the mix also - great version.
#todayInTheByteCellar I got the ISA adapter from Australia I’d been waiting for and so now have serial and HD both installed in the 640K Tandy 1000HX so it’s my main #BBS machine. Lots of character in this 8088 PC, I must say.
#todayInTheByteCellar I moved 20 floppies of Tandy apps and games I filled over the holidays to the CF IDE volumes now on the 1000HX and put the floppies back into circulation. Lots of good mid-80s fun, there. Once I replace its cracked case, I’ll be set.
#todayInTheByteCellar (well, last night) I got a 512MB CF card in the Tandy 1000HX acting as an IDE HD and began loading it out. XTree Gold, Deskmate, Demos, etc. Waiting for arrival of another PLUS-to-ISA riser to mount serial card alongside lo-tech IDE controller.
#todayInTheByteCellar I determined my CF cards are no liking the lo-tech so ordered a "new" one. Sawed part of an ISA serial board off and then fit it into the Tandy 1000HX. BBSed on the Tandy. Contemplated DOS 5.0 vs 3.3 as the best 640K 8088 fit. Hmm...
