I wish I still had an ISA NE2000 or 3c509 card kicking around. Seems ludicrously expensive to get one off eBay and shipped to Australia and I don't want one THAT much.
I've been through my old networking gear and every card I have is PCI, looks like I dumped my 90s-era stuff a long time ago.
If we ever develop the technology to reach back in time and slap people over the back of the head, Past Mike is going to have a really bad time.
@mike I know I had a box full of old network cards somewhere but don't know where it ended up. The shed at my parents' house is a possibility. I'll have a look next time I'm there.
@matt no stress it's barely registering on my list of things to think about. Now I can just pull a CF card out of the back and copy stuff onto it that way, life is pretty easy.
Would be cool to run a DOS TCP stack on it though.
@mike again, no urgency at all, just something I'd like to play with again. The other thing is to look for a 486 board with PCI slots, which isn't insanely hard to come by.
Consider this a friendly, local pub. Make yourself at home, bring your friends, have a good time! Meet new people, have a laugh, enjoy the ambience, and the Oxford commas.
