You can improve upon your understanding greatly if you would be kind
as to change the settings on your e-mail program to PLAIN TEXT mode
instead of RICH TEXT and/or HTML mode, as it is currently set.
Thank you in advance for the compliance,

yes, I know that certain NCR models were microchannel. I have a 3300 series
that's a 486dx and microchannel. very similar to a PS/2 9577.
I did read what he said. Sometimes in the early Compaq 486's (and
also late 486 Olivetti/NCR/AT&T) you get the error. Used to have a
slew of the monsters at work we got cheap to replace dying IBM's.
We replaced them with.. Wait for it.. I'll give you a hint, we were
bought by AT&T..

Hmmm... you don't use Windows much, do you...

The way I seem to remember it is that, back then, we were amazed when things
worked, rather than being irked when they didn't. Apple's attitude was clearl,
though, and that was that if your data really mattered, you'd certainly use a
computer and not an Apple. The Apple wasn't designed from the ground up as a
computing machine, but rather as a video toy (not in the disparaging sense) on
the order of the several other video games of the time, which, coincidentally
could also do some computing. Apple's approach was that if people were willing
to buy an Apple and then use it for useful work, they'd try to charge as much as
they possibly could, since the overall cost ostensibly would be low initially,
and then they'd make their money on the disk drives, (where they had some real
margin) and other add-ons that it took to convert the Apple into a computer
capable of doing useful work.
What makes all this crystal clear is that if I fire up an Apple today, it still
does all the stupid disk-subsystem-related crap it did back then, only, by now,
nobody would even think of putting up with that. Back then, it was about par
for the course, but it wouldn't last a week in today's environment.
Those parts were never cheap!
You can also use 74289s for the '189s. The '382s are an improved version
of the '182. A note, if you can tolerate a slower ALU you can omit the
and just use ripple carry.
A sub for 74189s is some of the byte wide cache rams from an old 386/486
as the faster ones were faster than the TTL 74189! You dont have to use
space of the cache ram though having it would make afor an interesting

Anybody know what a DEC H9642 enclosure looks like or how big? The
NetBSD hardware reference says its two BA23s... but I need to know if
I can fit it into the back of a Kia Sportage. Pictures, anyone?
Given that, anybody want one (its a MicroVAX II) in the Austin area?
Free, you just have to come pick it up. I'm being given this as a "gotta
take this too" in addition to a PDP 11/53... and I dont have room for it
in the garage, nor do I have time to mess with it right now...
