Apart from Lawrence, who AIUI is a former user - as he just gave me a
pile of OS/2 boxes yesterday :?) - are there any other OS/2 users on
the list? Or are there any active OS/2 mailing lists still around?
I am wondering if I can get a copy of the subscription-only last
couple of fixpacks for Warp 4 anywhere. I believe there were entirely
discontinued around 2007, so I really doubt that IBM cares any more!

As a seller, I've had auctions where the winning bidder crapped out, so I have made a Second Chance offer to the next highest bidder rather than relist the item. No shilling? or dishonesty was involved.

I think some of us like the INM type M keyboard...
If you are brace enough to take the heatstaked 'sandwich' apart and
replace the stkes with screws (I post the method for doign that some
years back), it's easy for one or two of the 'flaps' to jump out of
position when you're putting the bits together again. You then have a
couple of keys that don't work and you have to take the whole thing apart
What I do now is insert a flap then slightly stretch its spring and press
it over the rear of the key plunger housing, forcing the rim of the housing
between the coils of the spring. It'll stay like that, and the flap will
be held in place. Fit all of them, put the rubber sheet, the membrane
sheets and the base plate on, and screw it all together. Then unhook the
springs by running a screwdriver along, and fit the keycaps.
The plastic keyframe can be cafully cut between rows of keys (it
sometimes breaks along these lines anyway). You can then use parts of 2
damaged keyframes to make one good keyboard.
I am not sure what the offical sixe of head for the casing screws is.
It's often quoted as 7/32", which turns out to be a smidgen more than
5.5mm. I've found both my 7/32" and 5.5mm nutdriver fit fine.
Somebody was looking for some tpye M casing screws. Did you find them? I
spent the afternoon making a good tpye M from bits of 2 broken ones, and
thus I have soem bits over :-). I never thown anything away so I've got a
box of flaps, screws, etc. I could probably be persuaded to part wit hthe
Hi, I'm not unfamiliar with the various versions of the firmware of your
Kaypro 4, but the only person that comes to mind is Dave Dunfield. In time
he has collected images of boot disks of many machines. I arrange from a few
months of a PC configured to be able to read and write disk images 3.5 " and
5.25", but I live in Italy. Once you've got practice on how to use the
software to create boot disks is more 'easy to do that to tell it. If there
is no one else to may help you I can try. I'll give you references of Dave

I think I have a complete set of original disks for Netware 3.12, plus the
boxed Intranetware (v4.11 with 250 user liscense).
Never got around to setting it up (figured it would be cool on 486 and older
Whoever got that set of Lilith;s that where on ebay.de, if you are on this list that is, please ensure that you write-protect the disks.
Medos, the Lilith OS, expects a writable disk, but will boot and run from a write-protected one.
Otherwise you run the risk that a slight error in diskdrive or controller will ruin your disk pack. Happened to me more than just once...
And don't forget to replace those Keytronic foam pads : Medos expects a keystroke before booting up !
And google for "Emulith" in case you want to try out my Lilith emulator first.
Are the HP-UX 10.20 manuals available online in PDF format somewhere? I
can find a lot of 11.x manuals on the HP site, but nothing for 10.20.
Failing that, was there a documentation CD or the like?
I am searching for documentation for the CDC EP/IX Operating System and I'm
detecting a deep lack of it.
Some place where I could get some initiation manual, training guide or so on
