Re: Activity L.e.d.s for disk A and disk B?

That sounds like a nice addition to the 8800 Micro and think it would look great on the desk. The only minor nit to pick would be "Why would the activity LED be on if the door were open?" And my PERSONAL answer would probably be along the lines of "Because it looks somewhat cooler tha...

SN 252 is complete and functional.

I finally was able to install the SD socket and front panel resistor packs. Memory test passed and 8KBASIC is working perfectly.

Life is good in geekdom!

SD socket part number?

Hi, Does anyone know the manufacturers part number or an equivalent for the SD card socket on the Altair 8800 Micro? Mine is broken into several pieces and I'd like to order a replacement from Digikey or Mouser. (While I'm at it I might as well get a nice Push-Push shielded model if it'll fit, but t...

Re: Checking internals?

Remove the 2 screws holding the case together (on the bottom) and remove the top.

Re: Status of Altair 8800 4th batch?

My kit arrived last night. I hope to start building it this evening.

The new design for the front panel looks really nice!

Thanks Vince!

Re: Status of Altair 8800 4th batch?

Very cool. I'll unpack the soldering station...

Will we be getting tracking numbers on the pre-ordered kits, or should we just chill out by the front door.

Thanks for everything! WOO HOO!

Re: Troubleshooting a Build

Can you post pics of both sides of the board? A few dozen extra pairs of eyes might help.

Thanks.

Re: replica 1 tenth anniversary edition

I was sort of expecting this and am a little surprised that it still has a PS/2 keyboard port instead of USB, but it doesn't make a difference to me.

Of course an AT keyboard port to allow me to use my Model M would have been perfect... :mrgreen:

I'll start letting my friends know.

Another Replica 1 is ALIVE!

I received my kit on Monday, assembled it on Tuesday, and picked up a nice 9V power supply today. Everything seems to be working well with an old Dell PS/2 keyboard. :D Now I get to start figuring out what I want to do about building a case for it. (That and loading some programs onto a CF card to g...

Re: Will Replica 1 TE be back in stock?

I received my Replica 1 TE kit (next to the last one from the latest batch) and CFFA1 in the mail yesterday and am wondering the same thing. I expect at least 2 or 3 of my geeky friends to want one once I have this assembled and working. Will I be able to pass along ordering details, or do I just ge...

Re: Got my 8800micro and ram drive!

I'd go to Newegg. (Since I don't know your location that's the best I could come up with...) http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007651%20600009661&IsNodeId=1&name=PS%2f2 I'd suggest a Cherry or Keytronic personally. I would stay far away from Adesso as I have ...

Re: Status of Altair 8800 4th batch?

Vince said "Updates on the status of production will be sent on a regular basis to keep you updated.", so I expect he'll chime in on this eventually. If there are two 'Squeaky Wheels' here so far then there may be another one or two preorders in at this point. (That's just minimalist wishf...
