I'm still digging. I found more 550 stuff. I think this is everything
that came with the 550. Here's a chance for you 550 owner's to get the
whole set at one shot!
Original DS-DOS box and invoice.
Original Sanyo Easywriter ver 1.3 disk
Original Sanyo disk box with 550 dos ver 2.11 and BASIC 1.25, two
original Sanyo disk for InfoStar (set B disk 2 and 3 of 4; disks 1 and 4
are below), original Sanyo disk for DOS 1.25 and BASIC ver 1.1
Original Sanyo disk box with all three original disk of set A, WordStar
and CalcStar and a backup copy of DS-DOS.
Two card board dummy disks used to protect the floppy drives duing shipment.
>A few weeks ago we were talking about the Sanyo 550 series and someone
mentioned one of the alternates operating systems that supported 80 track
drives in the 550. I said that was DS-DOS by Michtron.
> Today I found an old Sanyo disk package with four disks for the 550. One
of them is DS DOS 2.11, one is InfoStar, one is MailMerge/SpellStar and the
other is a disk of misc utilities. The first three are original disks. In
additon, the InfoStar, MailMerge/SpellStar are Sanyo labeled disks that
came with the 550. If anyone wants them, trade me something I can use and
they're all your's.

Also available was a volker Craig terminal, and a copy
I also have "quite a pile of HP 712/715/725s in various
condition" for me to pick up when I get some space cleared.
IKEA has said that the missing piece to complete the
shelving will be delayed another 3 weeks, and my wife says
no more machines until the shelves are up!
hey do you have any ideas about using relays or some thing connected to a parallel or aerial port to control the power to an outlet, you know like a dimmer switch controlling motors ETC
if you have any thought or ideas I'd be glad to hear them.
I am getting my PDP-11/34 and my RK05 disk drives and packs tommorrow, and I have a few questions.They have have been in storage for years, and, although they have been kept dry, they are probably dusty. Can anyone tell me how to clean the drives and the disk packs before I use them?
Hey all...I am new to this classic computer collecting, but I have been
buying and reselling systems for a few months now. Anyway, I recently
acquired a Hyperion Passport (or is it a Passport Hyperion?), an Apricot, a
workSlate, and some drives, and other stuff (diskettes, or things) that say
Amdek on them. I am just looking on any information I can find on these! I
am attempting to put a value on them, and am trying to decide which to keep,
if any....I am running out of room it seems :-)
Any help would be appreciated!
To be honest, I cant get to it at the moment lol...I have a ton of stuff I
just got in, the Apricot among it. As near as I can recall, it was basically
rectangular shaped with 2 disk drives on the front, the front being one of
the narrow ends of the rectangle. I am really going to tear into this stuff
tomorrow or Friday! I still havent got all of it to the house :-) I believe
I can make quite a few decent systems out of all this stuff!
And hey, to everyone who answered me, thank you so much! All this info is
coming in really handy!
I just dug out an old single board computer which was made by a company
called "The Computerist" which is called a "Video Plus", probably around
1981-82. Its a 6502 based board with the same form factor as the Kim-1 and
I believe the same pin outs on the two 44 pin edge connectors. It has some
6522 vias and some video signal generating chip, a composite video output,
sockets for eprom, four 2114 ram, etc.
Does anybody have documentation on this board? I lost mine years ago when
I sold off my old KIM-1 stuff :-( and would like to resurrect this board.
Its in very good shape, but is missing some socketed chips. Need docs
though to get anywhere.
Any leads would be appreciated, even a contact to someone who ran the
company or worked there could help. They had a lot of neat products!
