Re: Wiki dead?

There's an export in the special pages, and it accept categories as input for the pages to export.
Unfortunately not all pages are categorized, there still yet a bunch to do. :(

It exports to XML, but what about the photos and diagrams.

Is there a free hosting for MediaWiki content ?

Re: CTPCI and USB card

Ha ha Didn't know so many Chinese in France.... not.

I need to try with some more mouse....

And my 80 wire IDE cable is the 45 cm long version.
I was thinking of those rounded IDE cables, but the headers looked very big, so I did not get any.

PET?
Green screen... check... but the fonts looks nicer than what i remembered on the PET.
I think more of like Apple ][ with Hi-rez graphics mode for the fonts.

Re: form_do and dialog box

Not sure what you're doing by the few lines of code you shown.
Don't think it hanged.
You just need to click on the OK button (if you have one), but in your case the dialogbox probably not drawn.
So if you have a default OK with properties of Exit, pressing RETURN will probably continue the program.

IIRC, it was implemented but you need to flash it as it was a later development after the batch was shipped out.

Re: CTPCI and USB thumb drive

To test the speed, I copied a 4,932 KB file from my TOS partition to the USB thumb drive.
(the thumb drive you see on the bootup photo above)
It took 23 secs.... so around 214 KB/sec.
