    Spring Roundup for the CRT Preserve Project

    It was awesome in it's day. The only thing that would have made it better would have been a VGA and/or S-video connector.

    Spring Roundup for the CRT Preserve Project

    I'll probably have another TV for you next time I come up to an event. It's a 19" JC Penney (made by NEC) Color TV/Monitor. I've kept it around for my old Atari 8-bit computers but I am planning on selling them off. Most likely at the next VCF Midwest. The only problem with the TV is that...

    Sleeper systems

    I looked at the size of the Wyse vs the little one that I used. It definately wouldn't work in an Atari 800XL case. Might fit in an older 800 case. The Wyse is 7.2" square by 1.4" high. The Bmax is 4.2" square and 1" high. I do like the idea of recycling an older PC.

    If you are looking for a for an AC Adapter, I've had good luck with 8-bitclassics.com (It's based in Wisconsin). I bought a new power supply for my XEGS computer for about $15.00. They also have video cables. I'm planning on selling off a couple of 8-bit disk drives if you are interested. I...

    Transferring VHS tapes

    I have a "Cloner Alliance Pro box". They are available up on Amazon. It's kind of a swiss army knife of boxes. It can take signals from HDMI, Component, VGA or Composite. Looks like the price has gone up quite a bit since I bought mine a couple of years ago. It records off to a USB stick...
