Re: your latest purchase

It's some kind of proprietary. Turns out it will run but with extra stress on the PSU. Since these PSUs are apparently infamous for failing I'll just wait until I can buy a transformer.

Re: your latest purchase

The info label on the side says "50Hz/60Hz" so the PSU must be able to handle both but I'm not sure if it would handle 20% more voltage.

Re: your latest purchase

I can get one off Amazon too but I don't have the spare cash right now, not after spending what I spent to ship the thing and its keyboard from Japan!

Re: your latest purchase

I haven't plugged it in yet because even though I was told it should be fine, I'm super nervous about blowing the PSU on a computer I had to have shipped from Japan as I have no step-down transformer...

Re: your latest purchase

Got the PC-9821 all cleaned up and it looks great! A pity about the holes in the top for space-saver brackets but eh, what can you do.

Re: your latest purchase

Hmm. Well this is from 1994 so I guess it would be fine. It will be fun in a few days to fire the thing up and see if it already has DOS installed or if I'll have to do it myself.

PC-9821Cx2.

And everything I was finding suggested PC-98s ran on 100V instead of 120V...

Re: your latest purchase

I bought a NEC PC-98. Still waiting for it to arrive at the middleman warehouse (the keyboard I bought separately already did) so I can ship it.

I don't even have a voltage step-down converter to use it yet but at least it has built in VGA so I can use it with my NEC LCD monitor...

I still have a few weeks of free time before college resumes so I'm hoping for the best!

Re: Car Talk

I had a Ford Thunderbird, 1995. Rusty, beat up, oil burning, just a tired old car. Unfortunately I still have it and my attempts to fire sale it via Craigslist haven't been fruitful so far. I was hoping to get at least $700 for it so I could upgrade my main PC...

Re: Car Talk

I got myself a pickup truck! A pretty darned nice one too. 88,000 miles, extensive service records, no frame rot...it does have a bit of rust on the front fenders and the metal part of the front bumper but compared to most trucks here in PA from 1999 it's a real cream puff!
