Just what it says in the title: I've acquired a Tandy 1000TX, and need a keyboard for it. Anybody have a spare?

I recently rescued an AT Rambank II memory expander card from the local recycling center. It's filled to capacity with 2MB of RAM, and I see from [url=http://stason.org/TULARC/pc/memory-cards/DTK-COMP ...

I've come into possession of a little half-length ISA video card. At first I thought it was a plain old MDA clone, since it drives the monochrome monitor I got it with, but after looking on the board, ...

So I've found a fellow not too far from where I live who's got a couple different machines that would suit my retro-PC needs. One's a Packard-Bell, the other's a VTech Laser 286. Both are AT clones. T ...

So I've got a decent little 286 system lined up, and just for kicks I thought it would be fun to get a NIC for it and hook it up to the Internet. There seems to be a fair bit of small-scale DOS-based ...

Hmm, nice. Could you make a note of the exact amount of memory when you test it? 512KB's not bad, but having the full 640 would be nice.

Have you tried digging around at the local recycler? Pre 486 systems are getting hard to find these days, especially for $10!

Put a wanted in the local craigslist and see what you come up with (or ...

I'm looking to get ahold of an old PC to play with. Here's what I'm looking for:
Pre-386 processor. Ideally an 8-12MHz 286, but I'm open to older options.

I have a PCjr color monitor I'm not using. I've tested it with a PCjr and it works fine; the video output is quite crisp. I'm asking $10 + S/H for it. Takers?
