After several more months of delays - personal and project issues -
Cadetwriter is being released. [Cadetwriter is the official name of our
general-purpose, Wheelwriter-based Computer Terminal.] The public
unveiling will be at this weekend's VCF West at the Computer History
Museum in Mountain View, California. Attached is a flyer on the device.
At the show we'll be demonstrating the Cadetwriter connected to:
* IBM 1620 Jr. via USB & proprietary protocol
* ALTAIR 8800 replica (Chris Davis) via RS-232 running OS/8
* PiDP-8/I replica (Oscar Vermeulen) via USB running MITS
Extended 16K BASIC (Bill Gates, Paul Allen, Monte Davidoff)
* Windows laptop via USB and a USB->RS-232 adapter
Our plan for the show is to invite anyone with a computer having an
RS-232 or USB port to try out Cadetwriter with their computer. We're
hoping for a lot of takers
We're finishing getting the documentation written or updated and
everything uploaded to GitHub. It should all be available next week.
We appreciate your patience.
IBM 1620 Jr. Team
