  • If someone is going to pick up that lot of computers, I’d be interested in the Amiga 500 if nobody else has claimed it. I have a pair of them here I’ve been trying to fix, and with that one, and the two I have here, I’m sure I could assemble one good, working one (I have an American keyboard and a good working RAM upgrade/Clock board). Can somebody let me know what is being...

  • Thank you Dave. I'm already on that list, as well as the Facebook list, the VintageComputers.org board AND the Worldofdragon.org board. So far... no joy. The only answer I've gotten was to buy this supply ( http://www.ebay.com/itm/30W-5V-12V-12V-Triple-output-Regulated-Switching-Power-Supply-T-30B-unique-/181470881197?hash=item2a4081e5ad ) totally bypass the power regulator board...

  • Not sure if I asked about this here... Way back in the early 80’s I worked for Spectrum Projects in Woodhaven Queens, that specialized in Radio Shack Color Computer. There was a company called TANO Corporation that made Oil Drilling equipment that wanted to get into the micro computer market, and they licensed the Radio Shack Color Computer Clone, the Dragon 64. They contacted...

  • I used to work for Zebra Systems in Woodhaven Queens, and we used to sell a cartridge board for the TS-2068 computer that carried either a ZX-Spectrum ROM or a program called OS-64 (a 64 column program). People want the Spectrum Emulator Cartridges. I've enlisted the help of Mark Blair who last year created an open source cartridge board for the Radio Shack Color Computer. http...

  • Elite Systems in the UK have resurrected the ZX Spectrum as a Bluetooth keyboard that uses the CPU in a paired Android/IOS device, PC, or Smart TV to recreate the experience of the original ZX Spectrum computer. Pre-release price seems to be 99UKP, but may come down as quantity ramps up and economies of scale kick it, Find out more here: The recreated Sinclair ZX Spectrum! The only...

  • I don't have a spare. But, yes the Model I, III, 4, MC-10, and Coco do use the same cable. The IBM 5150 also uses the same cable. I bought my last one on eBay. If you are handy with a soldering iron, they are easy to wire up. 8bit Micro.com - Build your own Data Cassette Cable for your TRS-80 8bit Micro.com - Build your own Data Cassette Cable fo...

  • My Tandy TDP-100 has a third party keyboard by a defunct company called HJL: https://flic.kr/p/qv16mZ I’m working on getting it cleaned up, and back on it’s feet. One thing I need is a “9” key for the keyboard. Oak Switch Systems which made the keyboard for HJL seems to be gone. https://flic.kr/p/rvVZwi It’s the same kind of keyboard that the Osborne used: http...
