Oh, I'd shoot myself if I had to wait on spinning rust on any of my DOSboxes. Put a SSD in there ASAP, they're so cheap now; even a SATA one will be a completely new machine.

Re: TE Records

I don't think you need that fast a processor. This is absolutely the bottom end Mac mini which I bought off a colleague for a respectable £250. The monitor cost a hell of a lot more than that... What you need is a decent PDF rendering engine, graphics stack and OS, which is why I don't use Windows ...

So far, I am more than happy to trust this counter as my "frequency reference". Probably closer than anything else I have by at least an order of magnitude. I don't need to calibrate the OXCO I'm tinkering with... I just need to see that it actually does adjust, and that the minimum adjus...

https://teanonymous.com/f1/download/file.php?mode=view&id=2044 Here it is, doing exactly what I got it to do. This is pretty much the absolute bottom of that CTi OXCO's adjustment range, which should be more than enough for my friend's watch calibrator. https://teanonymous.com/f1/download/file....

Yes, and I think this is the morning I'll brave the RIFAs and put it to use in anger; I wanna breadboard one of those CTi 10MHz OXCOs.

I notice another one has sold... was it anyone in here?
