CGA Video player source code

Well this one looks quite impressive on a DOS palmtop - full screen video. Back in the mid 90s even the "big" CD-ROM games usually only had a small video somewhere in the center of the screen as even 486 were fighting hard to get the video to play smoothly. So what's the trick to play back full scre...

XPCGA prank app source code

This is an old prank app... Maybe you have seen the Youtube video about it before... Just made this to fool a friend. It simulates loading Windows XP. Originally made for my HP 100LX, but will run on all CGA DOS Palmtops. http://www.tankraider.com/userup/1521059718.zip This is the source code. You w...

Re: Help... Looking for a 386 or 486 DOS AA palmtop to do all this:

Hehe, so what were the remaining 0.5%? Yeah collecting old computers doesn't have much to do about "usefulness" - more about passion... But i still use my HP 200LX nearly every day. Love it since it fits into my jacket pocket. I still do all my accounting calculations with the included "Pocket Quick...

Yeah love my family, but you don't have much time for other hobbies... :D I bought the Sony UX in bulk. I knew i could sell them for a good profit, so i bought a box with 10 of them. The Wibrain... yeah i understand people calling it "ugly". But maybe it's also a bit charming to be "Ugly" and have k...

Re: Sharp PC-3000

Yeah the HP 100LX/200LX in combination with an SRAM card are a real life saver in this case.

Thanks for the tip with the low power mode, i should somehow add that to my 3000/3100 articles.

There's actually loads of weirdos like us who love old monochrome DOS machines. At least if you look at the prices some fetch on ebay you get the impression some people are crazy. A used HP 200LX without box or manuals for 300 USD? A SHarp PC-3000 without any accessories, not even cables for 400 USD...

Re: Help... Looking for a 386 or 486 DOS AA palmtop to do all this:

Love the Gecko Edubook. Actually I love it so much I have 2 of them. Especially in Japan - where "Hi Power AA-Cells" in an 8 Pack are dirt cheap - it was always very handy. And the good point is that it has a charging mechanism built-in, so if you insert some Ni-MH AA batteries you can just plug in ...

Re: Help... Looking for a 386 or 486 DOS AA palmtop to do all this:

I really do like the Sharp PC-3000/PC-3100. Besides the flaws it is still a nice machine. But let's get to the drawbacks: - The PC-3000 (3100) runs MS-DOS 3.3. So even though it's possible to use PCMCIA Flash cards with a special driver you can only use a maximum of 32 MB. - The parallel/Serial port...
