dedicated to colleagues
being away from you, no more need to found the vein

bought a huge hipster 20 inc poster
true color with a long figurative finger

those believe we have to stand there
waiting for you to bang the gong,
to crash the critics saying
is it right or is it wrong?

have Happy Part-Party :D

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...

9801 or 9821?

You shouldn't have to have a step down converter because Japanese voltage is 120V

PC-9821Cx2.

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

No, it isn't necessary. It's a precaution I've never had to take with Japanese electronics.

Japan line is 100v, 50hz.

A computer after the mid-80's is almost guaranteed to be an SMPS so +-20% or more should be no problem. and after the 90's, autoranging 90-280v became ubiquitous.

You will have a problem with analog circuits (especially older AV equipment), anything motorized, heating elements, clocks, etc. A computer is almost always a non-issue, but the CRT would be questionable especially non-multisync.

Added: So I just googled and found out that parts of japan (towards the west) are 60hz :shock:
http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2225.html
The frequency of electric current is 50 Hertz in Eastern Japan (including Tokyo, Yokohama, Tohoku, Hokkaido) and 60 Hertz in Western Japan (including Nagoya, Osaka, Kyoto, Hiroshima, Shikoku, Kyushu)

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.
