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.
I recently filled the car with these:
Apollo DOMAIN Series 3500
Domain series 3000 model 3010
HP/Apollo series 400
(2) Sun 3/60 + tape drive and tapes
Apple lisa 2
(2) apple II Ci
Mac SE/30 with radius monitor
Mac color classic
power mac 7200/90
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?
"In the case of the 1771 and 179x series it's possible to build a really neat
circuit I've seen but never tried to match, which uses the /TEST pin on the
FDC to cause the device to put out its pulses much faster, allowing them to
be accumulated externally in a counter, which, drives a DAC which drives a
VCO, which drives the counter as it downcounts the number of steps, thereby
slewing the head assembly. This could lead to an interesting but lengthy
Sounds like an ideal candidate for reimplementation in a single chip
Hi, I've just gotten hold of an RS/6000 which appears to be a model 520
Since the thing appears to be a server (POWERserver?), and thus has no
display adapter, I need to get hold of at least one of the 10-pin to 25-pin
serial port converter cables.
Can anyone, preferably in the UK, help please?
Also, does anyone know where I can track down a set of AIX 3.1.0 manuals -
printed or electronic form?

Thanks everyone for telnetting into the 11/35. It seems the 11/35 could
handle the guests but not my PII-350 :-(.
The terminal server is now repaired and it looks to be stable. .. though
probably not as stable as the 11/35.
I will be putting online many different PDP-11s/PDP-8s online throughout
this week and the coming months.
The 11/35 will have FORTRAN IV, MACRO and FOCAL added to it (with a lot more
games) later on today.

I can't believe some list members here dive into dumpsters for computers.
That's dangerous. There could be dangerous,sharp items inside some. Toxic
residues (not all companies respect the environment), Legal reasons (maybe?)
not to enter one.
There are so many better ways to find old computers in much better condition
than something thrown into a dumpster with everything else piled on top.
