Re: [midatlanticretro] NEW thread for ending 2008 :)
- Happy New Year all!
My current projects include:
A - Vintage (by my definition) stuff running in virtual machines.
Eventually I would like to get all of the major network operating
systems (OS/2 LAN Server/Manager, Netware, Vines, and DECnet) running in
VMs and on period hardware (thanks to Jeff Jonas for all those EISA
cards and the Arcnet stuff).
II - Connect these networks using DEC and 3COM (thanks Andy) hardware
3 - Complete the IBM Cluster running on an XT and several PCjrs.
I have much of the hardware and software to keep these projects going
but there are some needed items... like two or three EISA systems (bare
motherboards or complete systems) with processors and RAM. Any OS/2
documentation or installation media for non-IBM versions of OS/2 and
other LAN systems - especially Banyan VINES.
Some LAN cabling would be a great help - like a few yards of thick
Ethernet coax along with taps and terminations would be fabulous.

- I had a Macintosh in College so I got the after dark series, then the more after dark series. I'm not sure but one of them was Bill Gates does windows. The screen saver had Bill Gates "cleaning" windows on your monitor and he would adjust his glasses a lot. Not sure if this was a standard screen saver or one that someone created. I loved the screen saver games. I can't remember the name of it, but it was a lot of fun. I will have to fire up my Macintoshes some day and see if I still have it.----- Original Message -----From: mejeep_ferretSent: Wednesday, January 07, 2009 6:24 PMSubject: [midatlanticretro] Re: NEW thread for ending 2008 :)I gave a friend the inflated winged flying toaster promo item, and I
