I enjoy retrocomputing on my old IBM 5150 but sadly my trusty 5151 is dead as is my 5152.
I am using a terribly screen burnt amber "1998" monitor. I have both EGA and MDA IBM
adapters so I can use any screen type.
If anyone around wisconsin has some extra 9pin monitors Monochrome, color or whatever
or knows of a good source I would be thankfull.
Also my IBM XT keyboard is pretty much dead as well. I am willing to boot some cash
if needed and travel to pickup if your local.
For my other projects I need some 1mx4 20pin dipp memory and a Quantum Prodrive 50pin
scsi 270mb hard drive (it must be that exact model) I can't seem to find a source of that stuff
either. My site displaying my old photography computers from the 80's is here
http://www.colortron.tk but someone here says it has non-worksafe popups, my suggestion use Mozilla, though the popups seemed to all be for either vonage when I checked. I am looking for any information on INnovion (the company that made the units) and their older Computer Photo systems from the early 70's. The original Apollo VP1 used a 4 bit processor and printed photos in 8pt text on oversized paper.
I used to be able to get old pcs from computer recycling places but they have all closed shop, if anyone here knows of some wisconsin based companies that recycle old pcs and would let someone take a few post a line. My hobby is getting harder to support without parts :(
On a plus note although retro computing is getting a little less common at least uncreativelabs.org is back :)
Thank You For Any Info
