Just joined after being directed to this site on a separate forum.

I have the following OSs running on various machines:

Windows 95, 98SE, XP SP 3. I also have an old XT clone sitting in a box with DOS 5.0 and an even older Timex-Sinclair 1000 (anyone know how to hook that puppy up to a Local Area Network?).

I am not a computer genius so please bear with me.

:welcome: I would be very surprised if you could hook that TS1000 to a network. I suppose the XT clone might if you have a network card and the proper protocols for it. I know I didn't really start networking until the 90s.

If memory serves there was a modem available for the Timex-Sinclair but it only has 16K RAM (original 2K plus the expansion module)

Be more for a "conversation piece" than to do actual work with. Hell to load and save programs on tape I had to buy a longer cord with the male earphone jacks on it then cover the cassette recorder/player with a pillow due to electromagnetic interference.
