Auction: IBM MicroChannel 4869 External 5-1/4" Disk Drive (360K)

It's not just a Battlefloppy any more! This is the holy grail of the
PS/2 line...even though it could cause some positively unholy injuries
if you whopped somebody upside the head with it...

(Sorry, couldn't resist poking a little fun at that...)

Complete with 360K-only controller card and the "dummy" drive cage/
adapter module...everything you need to make it work.

http://search.ebay.com/270123854097

Ends May-31-07, 15:51:52 PDT (1 day, 1 hour). Located once again in
Surprise (!!!), AZ USA. Ships to the US.

External IBM PC 5.25" Drive
Hi, Recently, I've been trying to get some data off a few 5.25" floppies I have. I found out that there was an External IBM PC 5.25" Drive created in the 1980s. However, it has a 37-pin male connector. A 37-pin female connector is not found on modern PCs. Is it possible to buy something such as an adapter that one can connect the 37-pin male connector to a parallel port adapter and then hook the device into the parallel port? Or would this create all sorts of problems? If it helps, I'm running Windows XP Home Edition but also have access to the first version ...

convert String "1;2;3;4;5;" to Array [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
I'm trying to convert a String of numbers that are separated by semicolons to an Array---totally for fun, to stretch my ruby understanding, fyi. I use the Array in a while loop which does work when the Array looks like = [1,2,3,4,5,...]---so that part is working. But I want to use ruby to convert a String = "1;2;3;4;5;6;7;8;9;10" into an Array [1,2,3,4,5,...] so that I can use these values. I've tried many a method, but can't seem to get the desired result; I've tried gsub(/\;/, ","), eval (), and others. ########## raw_data = "1;2;3...
