Re: Just bought a NOS IBM clicky keyboard

I have been looking for the 'clickety' IBM Keyboard for years, but the $$$ just keep going up :(
Still hoping to stumble across one at Goodwill, or Flea Market :)
Maybe an old friend or family member is hiding one I can snag.... (high hopes) :ugeek:

    The JR has a slot for a 300 Baud modem and it has the Back Side Serial Port connector as part of it's design. - The JR handles the COM port designation differently than other platforms, (big surprise) If you have a system with a JR modem plugged in the modem is considered COM1 $3F8(address) The back...

    TP7.0 and TP7.01

    Had to reload TP after my directories got scrambled, and saw TP7.01 on WINORLDPC and decided to use it instead of the TP7.0. turns out after loading and running, I was getting an internal error 200, this was a known problem with TP and the CRT.ASM file. So reloaded the TP7.0 and all was fine again.....

    File Maven like Norton Commander

    Just installed the FM35 files and so far is is a nice two window file manager..

    I ZIPPED up a group of files and it worked well... Uses PKZip.

    Kinda slow, but it looks like it has a number of features so should be well rounded...

    Will have to use it more but it looks promising..
