Re: IBM SSK club!

Imagine what I must have felt upon seeing the listing, lol. Ended up paying ~$35 all in for it, with a listed price of $100 for the full system. Would have loved to take the full computer, but there was no realistic way to get it from small town Maine down to me in Pennsylvania. Uggh...I'd probably...

Re: Future of DT

If we do ever get control back over the forum (unlikely IMO) then I elect XMIT as a leader. Far and away one of the best people our community has to offer, with the required skillset for running a forum as a bonus.

Industrial SSK's

Hi all, So, as far as I can remember, IBM produced two slightly different industrial SSK's for car companies. One, of course was the iconic MOPAR that shipped with the MOPAR diagnostic system. However, I've only ever heard the other model referred to as, "the Ford model". What did this Ford model sh...

Boil the sliders and housings, then boil the sliders again with paraffin wax. Restores Alps better than anything else I know of.

[WTB] MOPAR or Ford SSK case or full board

Hi all, In an effort to complete my endgame IBM board I am looking for industrial IBM SSK to drop in an FSSK. Preferably would like individual cases (and in the case of a Mopar, the specialty caps as well) but I can take a full board if needed. Willing to pay or trade a lot. Shipping within the CONU...

I don't know why we're even debating what they originally used. In my original email to Alps, they seemed pretty clear that yes, it was 2581P for the SKCM/L line. 16 months later and we've come in a big circle, heh.

Unfortunately the discord has been the target of trolls using hundreds alt accounts for months now. After much deliberation this was the only way we could think to effectively stop it. If you want to blame anyone, blame the trolls.

Pandorify was previously in trouble for posting illicit content involving drawn children in a keyboard discord server. No surprises he's this annoying outside of it. If you're going to troll this trainwreck of a thread, at least be funny.
