I just saw an unknown to me connector listed on an eBay auction and was
wondering if anyone knows more about an "FS/2" connector.
Link - FS/2 to IBM PC-AT P-1940-0042 CABLE 6 FOOT FREE SHIPPING
I assumed it was a typo / poor original copy that should have been a
"PS/2". But hovering over the label on the first three pictures clearly
shows "FS/2". Whats more is the kerning on the "F" is easily
differentiated from the "P" elsewhere on the same label. So it seems
that it's not the typo / faded label / etc. that I assumed it was before
clicking on the link.
So ... does anyone know what an "FS/2" connector is?

There used to be a cross-compiling gcc for MIPS specifically for the VR4121 in
the Agenda VR3 PDA, but it doesn't seem to be on any of the remaining sites.
Anyone out there got it or, he asked hopefully, the entire SDK? Binaries OK,

Why anybody would bid more than three hundred dollars for a bunch of ribbon
Unless there's something I'm not seeing here, I can easily (and exactly)
I could even make them with red or "rainbow" cables if you prefer. I'll do
a set for the
"bargain" price of $250.

Before I begin, this is a re-send of a message I sent to cctech, which
didn't get through. So, if there are still plans to keep the cctech
address live, could someone look at this, please.
Anyway, to get to the point:
I have been doing some more digging, mainly in my basement. The
following stuff is available for free to anyone who can come and collect it.
DEC networking stuff:
Multiport repeater DEMPR-AB
DEC Microserver DEMSA-A
Another piece of network kit: Retix 2265M 802.3 bridge
A Compaq 2260 "Portable II" lunchbox PC
A Penny & Giles 7000D double QIC drive. No idea what that conencts to.
I'm starting on my (surprisingly large) collection of printers and
related stuff. This may require some sorting when people collect -
there is at least one box of printer parts containing things like paper
guides, winding knobs, and even tractor feed attachments, which need
putting with the correct machines!
Anyway, the following have already surfaced, and there is more to come:
TI Silent 700 terminal, model 743KSR
Mannesmann Tally MT80+ (little 80-column impact dot matrix machine,
quite nice packaging, slight chip on cover,)
HP9195AB Scanjet Plus flatbed scanner
Nicolet Zeta 8A pen plotter
Finally, one piece of DEC kit I didn't mention last time is the Magtape
drive. This is the sort that takes up the top 18U or thereabouts of a
rack, but doesn't go very deep. I've been sorting through my Unibus
cards (some of which are taken, but others may appear here), but I have
no idea what cards would drive this tape machine. Can anyone help?
The same disclaimers as last time apply:

I have a couple of Epson printers looking for a home.
FX-80 - with manual and (box I think)
Both are parallel interface - Centronics, dot matrix printers taking pin feed paper and roll paper, both were working when placed in store, but condition now unknown (might be possible to test if required).
Located in UK - Lancashire. Please reply off list to mike_t_norris(a)hotmail.com

That sounds right.

Oops. TU16, I think.
I am trying to work out why my PDP 11/24 CPU is not working. To do so I want
to use my logic analyser on the F-11 chips. I have a regular 40-pin test
clip, but it doesn't make a good contact with the pins on the F-11 chips.
The test clips I have are made for regular DIP chips where the legs come out
horizontally from the side of the chip before turning 90 degrees and going
down into the board. On the F-11 chips the pins are pretty much stuck to the
side of the chip body and so the clip can't make a good contact.
Does anyone have any tips for attaching a test clip to the F-11 chips?
