Does anyone have a datasheet for these parts? I have come up empty on
the web and have 24 of them and can't explain why...
Most of the stuff I've had around here used 4116 or 4164 DRAMs and
I kind of suspect these might be a substitute for one of those...
but sure can't remember for sure.
Although, by the part number alone, one might suspect they are a
32Kx1 device possibly...
Any info appreciated.

This one is probably a long shot, but wondering if anyone has any
documentation for a Mohawk Data Sciences model 2166 paper tape reader.
The unit I have is s/n 2047 and was built by Mohawk, Montvale NJ probably
in the early to mid 70's. It's an all mechanical reader with 24VDC
solonoid and ratchet that advances the tape.
It came out of a Control Data maintanance console for the Star-100, which
sadly, as a kid, I parted out. All I have left is the cool aluminum
suitcase that it was built in... and this paper tape reader.

> So do people here know about the classic arcade game market?
I was involved in arcade game collecting, for about ten years.
rec.games.video.arcade.collecting on usenet has been active for a long time.
Philip - that's a little high for the current market. Maybe five years ago that'd be correct, but now Space Invaders is around US$500-700. A game like Battlezone or Asteroids should be more in the price range he's selling it for. Gottlieb was a major pinball manufacturer based out of Chicago, and since you didn't mention the actual name of the game I can't really judge if the price is fair or not.
And yes, there's a longstanding collector and "in home" coin-op market, something we also cater to at the Midwest Gaming Classic event. Plenty of forums, web sites, etc. for the coin-op collecting scene as well. Google is your friend. ;)
My guess is, there's someone in their scene right now asking if some amount is a fair price for a vintage computer system and if anyone collects that stuff. ;)

Subject: Arcade games
There's a shop in Coalville, I'm not sure what it sells (maybe it sells
games consoles; maybe it's an amusement arcade; maybe both).
In the window this weekend were two machines that caught my eye: an
original Space Invaders machine from 1978, priced at 895 pounds; and a
pinball machine from 1979 (branded "Gottlieb") for an
almost-as-unreasonable 495 pounds. (I think at current exchange rates
that's about $1300 and $700 US)
As I was walking home, failing to hum the Space Invaders song, I
wondered what sort of an active market is there for such machines? The
prices looked high enough that they must be aiming at serious
collectors, or possibly innkeepers who want to create a retro-seventies
So do people here know about the classic arcade game market? Are my
neighbours of a couple of blocks away being overoptimistic with their
PS What I remember from the period was the many, many attempts to write
Invaders-style games in BASIC on the PET and other home computers. And
my friend Matthew, after we'd borrowed a Sinclair ZX81 and experimented
for a week or two, shutting himself away and writing a quite good one
for that machine in machine code - I helped with the BASIC shell that
built the initial screen display. And wiring a phone earpiece to the
PET user port to hear the sound effects on the Commodore invaders
program. And so on...
PPS has anyone preserved the Space Invaders song? I sincerely hope not.

Metric hardware on cars - even North American built - has been very
nearly universal in North America for the past 15 years. There
are a couple exceptions still, like lugnuts. (Though by no coincidence
the most common lug nut hex sizes on small cars are 3/4" and 19mm,
and it's nearly impossible to tell whether it's metric or not by
the hex size!)
Strangely enough, spark plug threads in North America have been
metric since the beginning of time, but the heads are still fractional-inch.
