On a side note. My website is down and may never be back up. My domain was through godaddy and my hosting was at hostgo. For some reason I set my admin e-mail to the 386page.com address. Well, somethi ...

I have decided to bring a lot of my old computers out of storage, and after 10 years of sitting there are some issues (and some casualties). Embarassed

I was going to post last night, but noticed your reply upon previewing it.

I fear that hdd is dead. Macs are rather good at booting off a drive, any drive, so long as it powers up. I think you just ...

Well, not all my tinkering was in vain. The POD83 in an AST machine was noticeably faster than its' original 486DX-66. It ran Win95(A) for many years until it succumbed to a power supply problem. R ...

The chip is marked CL-GD6412-28QC-A. So I need a GD6412 driver and ne ...
