I glommed onto a good deal of new canary 1 inch paper tape in rolls (about
nine inch diameter), for Teletype ASR 33s. After taking what I want, I
would like to trade the rest for unused punchcards or other mainframe
debris. Enquire within.

I have all (?) three Indyzone CDs (Tales From The Indizone, 5.2
edition, 812-8102-002, August 1993; Awesome Power In The Indyzone^2,
Summer Edition 1994, 812-8111-002; and Final Impact In The Indizone^3,
December 1995, 814-8111-003), and IDO 4.1.1 5/93, 812-0017-006. I also
have lots of HotMix CDs. My website hasn't enough capacity for even
one complete image, alas. But if anyone in the UK has a suggestion, I
might loan them.

I have a pair of DECstations and related parts that I don't forsee
doing anything with in the near (or distant) future:
* Complete DECstation 5000/133 with display, mouse and keyboard that powers
up but has no OS.
* DECstation 2100 system unit only. Unknown condition.
* Storage expansion unit with one hard drive
* Three other DIGITAL mice NIB (maybe for the 2100)
* Another DA-15 to keyboard/mouse cable for the 5000
* Ethernet tranceiver

Pickup is from Glen Waverley, preferably early evening later in the week.
I hope someone else can get better use out of them than I have.
A while ago there was some talk about Ebay and not wanting to use Paypal
there for assorted reasons. Since I'm a relative newcomer to this list, I
figured I should wait before saying anything along these lines. So...
I'm in the business of selling classic computer stuff on Ebay under the ID
of "frotz661". See if you can guess the hidden references in that name.
Anyhow, I let some people talk me into accepting money orders. Then I got
burned by people who like to wait forever, money orders from Bumpassville
Supermarket, and so on. So I decided not to accept them anymore. You
guys seem to be a more reliable bunch, so if you email me ahead of time,
I'll accept a US Postal money order.

would it be accurate to say that a unit, such as my
Mindset II, which has the power switch built into the
keyboard turns the system on by asserting the
power-good signal (when the switch is activated)? I
know from the Byte article that an 8042 supervises the
keyboard (same or similar to the IBM PC/AT). I was
thinking I could tie something? to +5 volts in an
attempt to determine if my pos even works. And how far
is it from reality to suggest all pc kbs are the same
except for their 8048/9/8748/9 programming?

I've added a page to my website where I am posting
things I have to sell or trade. Currently have a
microVax 3100, DEC Storage Expansion, HP 9836, Sun
3/80 and Sun SparcStation 5. I'll be adding items as
I sort through things. Just don't have the time to
give these the attention they deserve so hope I can
find others who can. Most are in an unknown
You can find it at:
We are getting ready for a newborn in my house and I uncovered the following items which I would like to sell.
I would like them all gone preferably to one individual, so make me an offer I cannot refuse! Pictures are available upon request.
11 binders (Grey and navy with CDC logo, ranging from 1" to 3" size.)
1 Yellow binder, labelled "CDC Cyber 70 Computer Systems"
1 Control Data Stapler (works!)
1 long sleeve shirt w/collar. The turquoise shirt has been worn/washed, as it was used for career fairs by the recruitment team.
Looks like you have to 'refresh' the page after selecting which item you want
to look at. Then the image is displayed correctly.
That is when using MicroLimp IE ...

I just imaged a disk of an MS-DOS compatible computer (Tandy 2000). Does
anyone here know the magic number of an exe under ms-dos 2.0? I had assumed
that it was MZ, like current exe files, but I only see 2 or 3 occurrences of
this in the entire data stream from the disk. On the plus side, I see LOTS
of strings that tell me I have actually read the contents of the disk (this
machine used DS/QD drives).
Here are some examples:
Licensed to Tandy Corp.
BIOS version 01.00.00
Copyright 1983 Tandy Corp. All rights reserved.
MS-DOS version 02.00.00

I'm guessing I need a good hex editor to look at the directory and offsets
to see if they jibe. Any good windows based hex editors (or at least
viewers) that anyone can suggest?
I'll send the same message to 'classiccmp'
If anyone is interested, I found what appears to be a DG powered test
system on the govliquidation site:
The tape drive is DG and the card cage looks like my Eclipse system, but
know what processor it really is. It's in Oklahoma City and weighs 1740
pounds so won't be cheap to ship.
