MattInX's Miscellaneous Musings Say what now?


New V86P posts coming soon!

Yes, I know it's been a long time since I last posted anything. I've not has as much time as I'd like to work on retrocomputing projects, and when I have, I've definitely not had the time to write up blog posts about them.

Those of you who hang around on the same Discord servers or IRC channels as I do will have seen things as they progress - I've taken to snapping pictures as I go and chatting about projects as I'm working on them.

I've finally been able to take some time to start writing up all the various projects I've been doing with my V86P laptop, so hopefully there'll be a bunch of posts coming up soon talking about the following things:

  • Building an ISA expansion backplane and testing an ISA XT-IDE
  • Building an internal XT-IDE controller and mounting a CF reader
  • Building an RS232 SLIP to WiFi NAT dongle for network access
  • Converting the system from a NiCd pack to a Li-Ion pack (and building a new charger to match) - although this is still a bit of a work in progress

I'll try and get the new posts up online soon - they're mostly written, I just need to go digging through four years of photos to pull out the ones that need including.
