I don't get it. Maybe they didn't get it either?
Might be worth putting the drivers on vogons drivers?
Edit: Good work
Nice, now send that link to the douche bag seller
I was diplomatic about it. Explained that I understand hardware and even original media has value, but the retro scene always shares drivers. Then added the links and thanked him for the reply.
People really need to get over the idea that software is a somehow a physically limited resource.
Information wants to be free, baby.
I assume this is the listing: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Vintage...-Sound-card-with-SCSI-interface-/192130159016
What a tool, he's acting like somehow he has ownership over these drivers and that they are part of the transaction.
Yep, that's the one. Last time I sought out drivers this way, the guy came back the next day with dropbox links to two ISOs! Legend.
Reading this excerpt of the description again, a little light bulb went off. I said this about the card:
So the build should make use of SCSI, for starters. Which isn't super weird, but a less common path and one I haven't taken before. What other hardware would qualify as weird in retro build?
Internal zip drive not weird, but def not commonplace. Or an ageix physics card.
I want that case so badly it is not funny.
He ships Good fella too.
It comes with tabby stickers!
I googled this, and they made a doggie version and A PENGUIN VERSION.
I *need* this for my Linux NAS.
A recent pickup in my CPU spree was a DX2/50 for my Presario 425:
Finally got into it tonight. It goes into the second processor socket to take over duties from the stock SX/25.
Very glad to have a big jumper info sticker on the bottom of the case - but it turned out a lot simpler than I expected. P1 was already jumpered for 25/50MHz, and the new CPU isn't an Overdrive so no need to mess with P3-5. Just changed P2 to indicate socket in use, and it was in business.
Here's a shot of the rig from a few months back, with its matching rubbish tip speakers <3
I made some space on the desk and did some soldering. Now have a socketed RTC battery on the Asus PCI/E-P54P4 (dual socket 5) and am waiting on a 66.667MHz oscillator to replace the 60MHz - it recognises the P133s as P120s and it’s been bugging me for years.
The other soldering job wasn’t so successful (replacing a 30-pin SIMM socket on a Creative Goldfinch card), now have to fix broken traces - a job for another day with a clearer head.
Good thinking - soldering can be a pretty frustrating process I find and once the rage builds up then I start rushing and only make things worse.
A good craftsman never blames his tools, but better equipment (soldering iron, flux, wick etc) absolutely does make you a better solderer. That's my advice for anyone considering upgrading their gear.
Agreed and I did buy a better iron and wick a while back. Next up for me is finding a comfortable place to solder - I currently use a stand-up desk that's too low for me and the lighting is shit, so I'm hunched over with smoke wafting into my grill and can't really see properly
Managed to install Win 3.1 and some sound drivers into DOSBox.
Sounds like you need some Win3xO in your life:
