I've more of these than anyone will need and they're all brand new.
3 packs of Bernoulli 5.25 44meg disks
KAO 5.25 88meg syquest disks. The label inside says they are formatted for
Macs but includes software for wintel machines also.
$1 each plus whatever for shipping and they're yours. Just say how many you

you're not looking.

Well, the Univac III is back: UNIVAC III Computer (In Storage since 1975),
eBay auction Item # 2733726990. This time the starting price is $7,500 and the
buy-it-now is $11,000.

OK, somebody, jump right on it! :-)

side dish of 6502 or 8085)
Certainly, there are a lot of logic analyzsers (or
analysers, if you are English) floating around. I was
told by a guy who specializes in "refurbished" (i.e.
dusted off) test equipment that this is because a lot
of it is gov't surplus where they just grab the unit.
He also mentioned that a lot of university surplus has
partially blown pods because of carelessness - due to
the nature of what they do, not much protection on the
I have a Tek 1230 which I was lucky enough to get some
pods with. I had another one w/o pods and GOOD LUCK on
getting schematics, etc on this stuff - it's a "black
art" proprietary sort of thing.

I've just posted my utility which allows you to make Cromemco BOOT disk
via a serial cable and RDOS to my site:
Go to the very bottom of the main page, and select "disks and images",
the utility is called RT050410.ZIP (I'll think of a better name later).
I've also posted CROMDISK.ZIP which contains:
CDOS disk configured for dual 5.25" drives
(It's easy to make an 8" disk from this)
Cromix in both 5.25" and 8" formats.
Please refer to the RT.TXT file enclosed for information on how it
NOTE: So far this has been tested and found to work on only my one
Cromemco system, which is a System-3 with ZPU, 256KZ and 16FDC (plus
a bunch of Tuarts, PRI and WDI boards which don't matter for this).
This machine has dual Tandon 8" drives, and I've got a pair of Teac
5.25" drive attached externally ...
The RDOS on the 16FDC is version 2.52 ... it is possible/likely that
I have done things which may not be compatible with other versions
of RDOS, please report your findings to me.
I'm supposed to be picking up two more Cromemco systems next week,
one of which I know has a 4FDC (I think the other is another 16FDC),
so I should be able to verify/fix operation with the 4FDC shortly.
If anyone happens to have a spare 64FDC, I would love to have one
available so that I can get it working with the full set.
PS: Mike S. reports that the CDOS/INIT problem with 32k occurs only
when you are running it in 64k - on a true 32k only system, he says
it works OK - if you have only 32k, you may be able to skip the
intermediate disk - hopefully we can dig up a version of CDOS & INIT
which will resolve this little oddity.

Just wanted to say thanks for the people who have contributed knowledgebase
articles to the classiccmp knowledgebase (www.classiccmp.org/kb)
I do know that one person here is working on a really good article, should
show up there soon!
So, who wants to spearhead putting in a short knowledgebase article about
hooking HP-IB devices, given the recent discussion :>
