    Got a question about categories that I don't remember the answer to. XD
    I'm about to open a new thread where I review some of my favorite software synthesizers and software drum machines. With that in mind, would the thread in question classify as technology, or would it classify as music?

    Also discovered another assembly language OS called Menuet, shortly after watching a video on Kolibri. Unlike Kolibri, Menuet has 64-bit version in addition to 32-bit, although both can be booted from CD media and hard drives, not just floppy disks. Pretty slick stuff that I never thought was possible. :3

    Ever hear of an OS called Kolibri? It's a Pentium-based OS that was made with Assembly, and it can apparently run from a floppy disk.

    Well, it's official: I'm back to Windows 98 with the unofficial Service Pack 2 installed... I've finally seen what Wikipedia meant about the instability with Millennium Edition. Fortunately, all my data still remains on my CompactFlash card, so having to reinstall an OS wasn't all that painful.

    My modern desktop works great all the way back to Windows 2000...except the video drivers. They only work on XP and newer, so 2000 is stuck with VGA.
  28. Seiji J. Konokama
    October 30, 2012 04:32:20 PM
    Seiji J. Konokama
    Yeah, I had to download the proper video drivers for the ThinkPad and then transfer them to a floppy for easy retrieval... Otherwise I'd have been stuck with 16-color 640x480 on a screen that can support up to 800x600 at True Color. And for that, you gotta love PCMCIA CompactFlash adapters.

    Other than that trivial issue, I have yet to run into any stability problems that Wikipedia reports about Windows Millennium. And realizing that Millennium Edition is basically the home-oriented version of Windows 2000, so far I'm loving the appearance of the desktop.

    Apparently, microSD cards can survive laundry day. I found my 2 GB microSD card in the bottom of my dryer, and when I plugged it into my memory card reader, Windows XP actually recognized it without a problem.

    I also found out that my ThinkPad can go up to Windows ME, and I thought it couldn't run anything newer than Windows NT 4.0.

    I had some mini organizer that I used to keep little notes on. It was so annoying when its 16 KB of battery-backed RAM filled up.

    I have lost two flash drives: one 1 GB and one 8 GB. As I still never found them, I assume I lost them on campus or had them stolen. I did once lose my 256 MB one, but I got it back later on.

    I have five drives I carry around right now:
    128 MB - Not really sued
    256 MB - Used for quick transfers of small files, formerly my primary school drive
    4 GB - Formerly my primary school drive, but has since been replaced by SkyDrivel; currently just gets used to move larger files around
    16 GB - Xbox 360 backups
    320 GB - Not a flash drive, but I might as well bring up my hard drive, which is used to store massive files like movies and games

    Now don't make me bring up my cache of SD cards.

    September 27, 2012 09:16:48 PM
    Seiji J. Konokama
    Yeah, I remember those days. I used to have a Handspring Visor (basically a PalmPilot clone) back before I started using laptops, and then it pulled a GLaDoS on its own flash memory. Man, that was a fun little PDA... I annoyed a lot of my high school teachers with it. X3

    I've been through so many flash drives, it isn't even funny. My first flash drive held 64 MB, and I used to have two 1 GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives until someone stole them at college. Right now, I've got 4 flash drives, one being devoted to PS2 media, another being my recovery drive, and two SanDisk Cruzers that I use for this, that, and the other thing. And as my high school librarian once said, you can never have too many flash drives.

    I remember seeing PCMCIA flash drives way back in the day, but even 8 MB was ridiculously expensive. I still have my first 128 MB USB flash drive, and I've actually had to use it a couple times recently.

    Hmm...remember when cell phones, PDAs, and pagers were separate devices?

    Yeah, I'm getting kind of tired of using my 5-year-old MacBook as my main computer, and yet I don't have the money at the moment for a new Acer Aspire notebook. I'll still keep the MacBook after I buy the Acer... I just won't use it as often as the new guy.


    Hey, btw, did you know that the solid-state drive traces its origins from the 1950's?

    Yeah, I'm done sinking money into laptops that keep breaking. This netbook is pretty annoying, especially the mouse and sound volume, but it still manages to survive as a backup, so it's best to just use the mule for a while longer.

    I'm getting a tablet soon, so hopefully that gets some use.

    I'd say bear with the netbook until you can find a laptop that meets your needs. Other than that, I don't know what else to tell you.

    I like the difference between the two CF cards I have. One is 8 GB, while the other is 64 MB.

    I keep having trouble with my current laptop. The power supply crapped out and decided to possibly short the battery. (It only runs up to 3 hours now, as opposed to 4:30 hours like in May...and even a week ago.) And now the screen has a nice crack in it, which blacked out part of it so I cannot see it. I'm not sure if I should sink more money into it or just deal with my netbook. I really don't like that netbook, but it has survived more than my other laptops with practically nothing broken.
  41. Seiji J. Konokama
    September 25, 2012 01:21:38 PM
    Seiji J. Konokama
    Yeah, I blame him for having it as well. X3

    By the way, I just ordered my first CompactFlash memory card (2 GB, because I didn't want to chance anything larger than 2 GB), and a PCMCIA adapter to go with it. I'm hoping that, on my ThinkPad, I can install Windows 98 on the memory card and use my internal HD for storage. We'll see how it goes when they both arrive.

    Hehe. I have a Pentium processor lying around somewhere that isn't being used.

    I personally want to use a very old-style beige box to install a modern computer. Only troubles are the motherboard IO panel, the expansion slot positions, the screw holes for the motherboard on the case, and the power supply.

    I wouldn't say it's bad that you've heard of HyperCard. In fact, it's good to know that I'm not the only one on VR who's heard of it.

    Is it bad that I'd like to get rid of my suitcase computer in favor of a desktop PC with a Pentium MMX?

    Is it bad I've actually heard of HyperCard and know how it works?

    I think I still have a D-sub MIDI port joystick, but it doesn't work. I think one of the axes fidgets a lot.

    I wish I had a spare 100 MB Zip disk to send to you. Unfortunately, I think the Zip disks I have contain a lot of old Mac stuff, including a legacy program called HyperCard, which is a forerunner of HTML and/or HTTP. I used to play with HyperCard a lot when I still had my Macintosh Performa 6360. Not sure how it would run on my iBook G3, though.

    On another tangent, seeing how I neither have suitable control pedals for my PS1 racing wheel nor a computer to use my CH FlightStick with, I may end up wiring the Y-axis of the FlightStick so that I might be able to use the joystick as a pedal replacement. We'll see how it goes once I'm done cleaning my game room.

    It looks like IDE. I might be able to ask if I could borrow/keep one and test it out with my Windows 7 machine, but I don't own any Zip disks.

    Windows 7 still has such an app built in (just type "dialer" on the Start Menu), but I believe it requires an actual handset to be attached to the passthrough port on the modem.

    June 26, 2012 12:53:41 PM
    Seiji J. Konokama
    The internal modem that we replaced with a faster, external modem, allowed us to use our Mac as a telephone. I don't know where I can find the application that gave us that ability, but it was awesome to take and place calls using our computer.

    I wonder if I can do the same with my ThinkPad, considering its PC network card doubles as a fax/modem...

    We got on the grid at home in '99 with a simple e-mail service, which none of us really used. I just used it so I could talk to my dad during his free time at work. I still have those messages, too, including my spelling of "Picachu."

    Yeah, I remember the days of dial-up. No fond memories to go along with those days, but hey, the 1990's were a period of technological discovery for my family; we got on "the grid" in 1998, and we were on our third Macintosh at the time. I'll list the computers we've been through at a later date and upon request.
  55. Cat333Pokémon

    Yeah, no idea what to say about the Dreamcast. Its modem was still ahead of its time, but so it was still during a time of service fees and when the Internet actually prevented you from another service: the phone.
  56. Seiji J. Konokama
    June 21, 2012 10:34:02 AM
    Seiji J. Konokama
    It seems to me that Japan left an extremely heavy impact on us gamers outside of Asia, that online gaming is so popular all over the world. In terms of online play, I sometimes wish we would have gotten in sooner than the Dreamcast generation. On a commercially successful game network, nonetheless.
  57. Cat333Pokémon
    June 21, 2012 12:46:25 AM

    From what I've read on Wikipedia, there are only 12 or 13 software titles that are compatible with the MegaModem. All twelve cartridges are Japanese releases, of course. It's a shame that other games like Sonic the Hedgehog didn't have support for the MegaModem. Online linked play would have been awesome for some of the most popular titles.
  59. Cat333Pokémon
    June 20, 2012 10:32:17 PM
    Cat333Pokémon
    I wonder what kind of shoddy stuff you could do with an Internet-enabled Genesis, though? The following generation barely had any support for such stuff, and the Internet was...well, there was no World Wide Web on it.

    I'll definitely use H.264 for the destination format after capture, but it's just too CPU-intensive to use live encoding with it.
  60. Seiji J. Konokama
    June 20, 2012 07:34:41 PM
    Seiji J. Konokama
    Turns out the EXT port on the back of the Genny is some sort of modem port. It was featured on the first two motherboard revisions, including the Model 1 I currently own. Until eBay came around, no one outside of Japan got to see the Mega Modem, as it was called. There are, in fact, programs you can interface an old PC with a Genesis, although in order to take advantage of them, a homemade Parallel port adapter must be constructed. As I really don't feel like whipping out my soldering iron, I think I'll forgo the PC-to-Genesis link.

    As for high-definition video, I really don't know what to tell you, other than to try H.264 compression or MP4 formatting if either are available.
  61. Cat333Pokémon
    June 20, 2012 04:49:39 PM
    Cat333Pokémon
    Oh, any advice for capturing high definition (720p, maybe 1080i, but I don't like interlacing) video? All the programs I've tried so far have problems with the minimal compression formats. Too many dropped frames (might be a hard drive interface bottleneck, but it is SATA II), too large of file sizes (I don't want files over a terabyte.), or just generally difficult to use.
  62. Cat333Pokémon
    June 20, 2012 04:47:22 PM
    Cat333Pokémon
    I think that's some kind of external video interfacing port. I saw something that used it once, but I completely forgot what it was for. I have Model 1 and 2 Genesises, but neither have it, so I assume it was dropped sometime before the release of Model 2.

    I'd love to be able to emulate at least NES, Super NES and Sega Genesis on the PS2... that would be awesome, as I'd be able to extend the lives of the respective consoles I own for maybe another 20 years. Heck, I might consider running Linux on the PS2 for lulz.

    I love hacking stuff up. My Wii is so messed up from soft hacking that some games (don't worry, I buy those--and I've bought WAY too many channels that I have to shuffle with SD cards) take upwards of 5 minutes to start, without hyperbole.

    You might like Kraftwerk if you're into electronic music. They're definitely worth checking out. :3

    Although I have no intent for piracy, I've performed a memory card exploit on my PS2 Slim. Exploiting via memory card, also called softmodding, is great, because it's tons safer and much less complicated than installing a modchip, and it allows the user to run homebrew on their PS2 systems. The caveat is, the memory card exploit will only work on pre-SCPH-90000 PS2 consoles.

    It took about 30 minutes to code it, but I got the PS/2 to play the fanfare from when you clear a castle in the original Super Mario Bros. I wish I would have written it down... although I can always rewrite it and save it in QBasic.

    At the end of my previous VM, did you notice I made a reference to a song by Kraftwerk? The name of the song is "Pocket Calculator." :3

    I think I found a practical use for that old IBM PS/2: A "BASIC" monophonic square-wave synthesizer. Since I still can't get the floppy drive to work, the only way for me to save programs is to either write them down on paper, or input them into QBasic. Speaking of QBasic, here's some code for you to input and run. Line numbers are optional, of course:

    10 SOUND 440, 2
    20 SOUND 590, 2
    30 SOUND 750, 2
    40 SOUND 880, 5
    50 SOUND 750, 2
    60 SOUND 880, 5

    And by pressing down a special key, QBasic plays a little melody.

    A friend let me borrow his copy of Final Fantasy 7 for Windows, and I noticed that the Yamaha XG SoftSynthesizer installer package was on the first disc. Looks like there are two different modes for the Yamaha XG softsynth: XGLite and the professional XG mode. My opinion, the professional mode sounds better.

    It's a shame that FF7 won't work with my ThinkPad, but at least I've got a more versatile MIDI configuration on the old laptop... :3

    How'd you get Yamaha XG? I wish modern computers had built-in synthesizers without having to buy a Creative card.

    Took me a bit of searching for the right version for Windows 98 SE, but I'm no longer limited to the already-awesome Crystal Semiconductor FM synth on my ThinkPad. My second option: Yamaha XG, the crusher of Microsoft Wavetable GS. X3

    Thanks for helping me out with the picture question. ^_^;
    As for the error, I don't think I've ever encountered one like that, knock on wood.

    In response to the large Zorua image below, I found vectors online and exported one of them at the maximum my computer could handle.

    Ever seen a blue-screen that tells you there is nothing wrong with your computer?

    Yep. Fortunately, I have located a pinout for the P70's keyboard connector, and I just unearthed an old PS/2 Microsoft scroll mouse that I would have otherwise used with my ThinkPad. Now it's just a matter of purchasing a PS/2-to-USB adapter. I'd really love to use that old keyboard with my USB-equipped computers, even though it lacks the Windows keys.

    Maybe while I'm at it, I should buy a game-port-to-USB adapter, so I could have a practical use for the old CH FlightStick Pro. :3

    It's quite possible that it's PS/2, although I can't tell because the connector is flat at the keyboard end of the cable. I'd have to dismantle the computer to detach the cable from the logic board.

    Wait, it doesn't have a PS/2 connector...on the PS/2 keyboard?

    Now, if I could adapt it to a regular PS/2 keyboard, and then bought PS/2-to-USB adapter, I'd be as happy as a clam. :3

    In your business, you've got a mission: to rise above the competition. How are you gonna do it? You're gonna PS/2 it! XD

    I don't know for sure, but apparently, you can use a Wii Remote with GlovePIE, as long as you have a way to connect to your computer with Bluetooth. I've seen where people have simulated a lightsaber with a Wii Remote using GlovePIE.

    I use MultiControl all the time when I have my keyboard hooked up, as the keyboard itself has no pitch bend or mod wheels. It's still a good keyboard, though. :3

    On a Mac, there's this program called MultiControl, and it converts the controls of any USB joystick (e.g., hat switch, X axis) to MIDI events, thus allowing you to use a joystick to make music. GlovePIE does the same thing for Windows. :3

    With either of these programs, the Y-axis could be used as a pitch bender, among other configurations.

    I have no clue how to program the port. Hm, VB.NET might have something.

    Yeah, I just hope I can use my ThinkPad like a Logitech Harmony remote of sorts. Sure, it's gonna require some extensive software hacking, but I don't have any devices (other than remotes) I could sync with the ThinkPad via infrared. What I do have, is the guts to try using my IBM laptop to control my AV equipment. :3

    Nice time, hehe.

    I've never been able to figure out exactly what to do with the IR sensor.

    I think I like the PSX startup better.
    Actually, for as slow as my ThinkPad is, it looks cool as the icons appear right when, in the actual PS1 startup, the PlayStation logo appears. :3
    I have noticed that, on the side of the ThinkPad, there is an infrared communications sensor. And so, what I would like to try, is using my computer... to control my TV and stereo. X3

    Haha. I once changed the Windows 7 startup sound to the Windows 98 one. (It required modifying a system file externally.)

    Woah, I remember that interface. Haven't heard about it in forever, though.
