If you look at the sticker on the tape drive, it tells you to touch the 
shutter on the drive before inserting a tape. Remember our thread on 
tape errors and grounding?

The truth is out there...

Fascinating.  Interesting sticker.
In my Basement of Doom and Diet Pop I occasionally get a spark. I have a 
combination of carpet and concrete floors, mostly carpet.

But outside on the back patio, I have an "AstroTurf" covered rear concrete 
patio. It gets very painful in the summer to walk to the car and touch the 
door handle, or touch the door handle walking into the house. Frankly, 
before the back patio was covered, the concrete was actually worse. I have 
witnessed blue sparks shooting out over an inch. Hurts like hell too. I have 
reached down to pet one of my cats, and watched �" sparks fly from my hand 
to their nose. Surprisingly, they don't seem to like that. :-)

At the grocery store, I sometimes get shocked badly touching the cans on the 
shelf. Doesn't seem to matter what shoes I wear. I have thought about 
dragging a "ground strap" behind me.

Advising to "touch the cover plate" is really interesting.  I wonder at what 
point the static charge causes damage or data loss? Is it below the 
threshold of detection? Or does it require one of those big blue flaming 
sparks to zap something? Or something in between.  Some of my ID cards won't 
scan because the magnetic strip doesn't work. I sometimes walk around with a 
256Meg memory stick in my pocket. I guess the first time I go to insert it 
into a USB slot and see sparks or explosions, I should realize I should have 
"touched the cover plate" first.

Cool observation Louis

Spoken like a person who has never pissed on an electric
fence...........

By the way, years ago when I was a grad student on a biology field trip
in Wyoming, a storm was brewing so we decided to retire to a local pub
(for protection's sake, you understand).

There had been some ranchers working near us, and one of them was a
professor at the university.......who didn't have brains enough to
leave........and they were stretching a barbed wire fence.

Lightning struck the fence about a 1/2 mile away.....with the
inevitable result.  (I never liked that professor anyway)

Bob, they have straps for anti-stat environments, they fasten over the 
heel of the shoe and towards the front of the ankle.

I was at a large garden party in London a few years ago. A thunderstorm 
started, and a large proportion of those present immediately sheltered 
under the trees...!

I counted eight ambulances...there may have been more. It made the 
national news.

Oh, there were 8000 at the party - it was at Buckingham Palace!

I remember a thread on a similar computer with the same setup, an adapter or
memory did not work.

To follow up on the original thread about tape errors and grounding:

I installed a Tandberg IBM 4100 in another external enclosure and
grounded it the same way I had grounded the Tandberg SLR5.  I did a
backup from a PS/2 77 Bermuda using Spock and it came up with a
permanent and fatal read/write error.

Maybe the tape drive is defective?

Problem solved (I hope).

I ran a cleaning cartridge through the drive and now it works fine.

David David@IBMMuseum.com seller Too rich for my blood -- of course, I've got a *much* nicer 8580-321 sitting about 20 feet away from me that I got for *free* (I did have to pick it up, but that was a local trip, maybe 20 miles round trip). Microsoft Xenix - many years ago I used it -- tossed it -- wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Some software simply never should have been released, Xenix falls into that category. Rick Ekblaw ...

Auction: IBM PS/2 model 80, 386 type 8580-A31
Feb 02, 2013 20:55:18 PST Or a BIN. Wichita, Kansas A bit spendy, BUT this is an Axx system. I have no room at all. Hmm, a 8580-A31 is a 386DX25 comouter. Earlier models were either 16MHz or 20MHz. I see an XGA video card, an IBM SCSI Adapter/A, an HP card, possibly a SCSI scanner controller, a possible serial / lpt card, and down at the bottom appears to be an early AOX McMaster 486 upgrade adapter, sans memory. The 211 error is memory. If you look right below the power plug going into the planar, both white sockets are empty. Files are freely available for the 8580-Axx and the McMaster. The planar memory cards are available in people's stashes. The Axx could take the 4MB size, and was a good system. The drive support structure could take an IBM dual drive sled OR it could accept an HD mounted in one of the Model 57/77/95 drive sleds. Or you can even use a 5 1/2 to 3.5" drive adapter and put AT drive rails (like those used on CD Rom drives) I'd like to give a look ... what's the auction number ? Couldn't be able to find it... -- http://www.supervinx.com/Retrocomputer http://search.ebay.com/281056871530 On 1/27/2013 16:01, Louis Ohland wrote: > Feb 02, 2013 20:55:18 PST > Or a BIN. > Wichita, Kansas > > A bit spendy, BUT this is an Axx system.
