As some of you may know, I have Rlee Peters' collection of stuff, which
seems to be largely composed of documentation. So far, I've been
unloading it on Ebay. The recent discussions about Ebay versus the
vintage computer marketplace got me thinking.
I'm attracted to the idea of listing as much of this as I can at the
vintage computer marketplace because 1) the people who buy stuff there
presumably know what they're buying and 2) I can easily list stuff and let
it be for sale until it's sold. Does anyone here have a ballpark idea of
how long stuff would sit there until it gets sold?
As I picture in my mind's eye the two storage units of stuff, I think I
might have been a little too eager to get it. Oh well. At least I have
some vintage items that I wouldn't otherwise have. I'm keeping about four
cubic feet of stuff. The rest I need to find a home for.

A few Cray systems come to mind as being very artsy. While not in
the same league as Apple, I'd call a machine with the innards
immersed in fluorinert pretty unusual in apperance.
Agreed - the Crays were definately art. I really like the Cray 1 with the
seats above the power busses, and the beautiful logic column. And I also
agree on the Apples, especially the models with the clear plastic - lovely
Does anyone have pinouts of the following 2 ICs, both of which, I think, were
made by Western Digital, and are in 40 pin DIL packages :
PT1482B (Async/Sync serial transmitter)
PR1472B (Async/Sync serial receiver)
Thanks in advance for any help.
Tried a private reply. Getting a wierd fail message. Can't troubleshoot the server right now.

I would be interested if no one else has jumped at it. At your convenience. Shipping would be to NJ...
Just discovered a circa-1990 Tandy 52MB (Quantum) 3.5" IDE hard drive
and installation manual in my junkpile. The manual refers only to
"type A" and "type B" chassis types, not to specific models.
Does anyone want this thing? For shipping and a couple of bucks for
packaging, it's yours.

If I had any data on the bridge boards, I would. I had posted a request for
data on the NCR bridge, but didn't hear anything back. There is a setup
description for the Qualstar designed one in the back of the 1054 manual.
Descriptions of the SCSI command set supported on the 1054 would be handy as
