@dewster, Yeh, I'll give those a try. I also just got a pair of quarter inch jacks from ChrisC, along with a full build up copy of his Mr. Mute / LED kit I'll be putting into an EW Std, so, great to have options.

@FredM. OMG! 8inch dual floppy! I'd love to add that to my collectino of drive / discs on my table as people come in to the studio. I've got a couple of old 5.25, 3.5, but still need to display a 7 and 8 inch drive. Yeh, I used to fix comps for a "living?" Yeh, got into the field when "everyone" started learning to fix their own. LOL Then, I found the theremin. Or, did it find me? :) I've even got somoe of the legacy ware you listed, along with a co-co (Tandy color compututer), 3 Amigas, an Atari 400, a couple of 286 mother boards, one with the older soldered ram, a bunch of old ram sticks, 486s, pentium II, and III, even the intel guy in clean-room suit plush toy from when the Pentium II was new. LOL :)

Oh gosh, Del, and gateway are both guilty of sluffing off under-powered machines on customers. I've had a couple of each, and had to pay more to replace the power supplies, and add video cards, and ram to clean up behind them.

One thing I hated most about being a tech was getting hold of a machine that had a kind of virus that behaved just like hardware failures. Give me a theremin any day!
