I just picked up a Quantel Limited DPE-5000 video switcher. You ask how
this relates to computers? The interface box is an LSI-11/02 with 4KW of
Does anyone have more info on this thing? It has an 'interface unit' -
the LSI-11/02 in a 2U 19" rack case, 4 Q/Q quad-wide slots, some control
boxes, cables, and a big switcher unit that is about 14" tall and 19"
wide (might be rack mount using slide rails that I didn't get because
they were broken.
Any info would be appreciated, thanks! Also, if anyone needs one of
these, I might be willing to part with it for a decent amount of money
- a bit more than a few tens of dollars.

Pretty neat box. Quad Pentium 133 with 256 MB of RAM? Just how much
RAM could that beast take?
It'd be quite the conversation piece as a workstation running NetBSD
(or something) and XWindows... 8-)

Well better count me in for my "frankenlisa" as you previously
referred to it. You may remember it was upgraded to a Lisa 2/5 and I
subsequently 'downgraded' (?) to a Lisa 1.
Had to find the I/O ROM, twiggy drives and cage and the front panel,
reconnect the two resisters etc,etc.
I even managed to find a complete set of Lisa OS and Office v1 disks.
Unfortunately, the Lisa OS disk 1 went bad before I could install the
Profile. I now have a new (copied) set on the way.
I have got it to boot the Lisa 1 version of BPI accounting though.
I've also got a copy of Unix for Lisa 1 but the serialized ROM is
causing me trouble. Anyone ever found a technician's video ROM with
no serial number? If so I'd love to get a copy!
I remember someone contacted me about an application they were
writing to take images of twiggy floppies - a flurry of activity at
first, then nothing. Anyone else heard from them?

I am in need of IC Master catalogs for the years 1989-1991. Anyone have
any to part with or know where I can get them?

About a month ago, I bought myself a laser printer. Specifically, a
Panasonic KX-P4400 (OK, so it's an LED printer, not a laser, big deal).
Unfortunately, the thing only has 1MB of RAM onboard. Panasonic want $400
for a 4MB upgrade board ($100 per megabyte? WHAT?) and Kingston have
discontinued their $40 clone. Sooo... Has anyone got a Panasonic "KX-PEM1",
"KX-PEM2" or "KX-PEM3" module lying around somewhere? Alternatively, the
Kingston Technology equivalents, "KT4400LP/2" or "KT4400LP/4" would be
Anyone got one of these boards they feel like parting with? Printing out
schematics on this thing is damn near impossible with only 1MB of RAM...
Contact me off-list if you've got one of the aforementioned boards; I
wouldn't want to end up pushing the signal-to-noise ratio on Classiccmp any
Can anyone help this guy out? I will have to look around and see if I have a manual for one of these but that will take awhile.
