I started that many years ago like 1995ish. I spec'd Tygon (brnad name)
as that was available to me. Most any generic Vinyl tubing works so long
as it fits tight and has enough wall thickness.
After about 10 years it tends to get hard, the fix is obvious.
I'm looking for more information on the Teleray series of terminals
>from Research, Inc. (Note: Teleray is the name of the terminal line,
not the name of the company! Although later they referred to
themselves as the "Teleray Division" of Research, Inc.)
In particular I'm looking for manuals and other documentation. If you
have a Teleray terminal and you're looking to get rid of it, I would
be interested in purchasing it from you.
I know of the following models:
1971 Teleray 3300
1975 Teleray 3900
1976 Teleray 3811
<1977? Teleray 3541
<1977? Teleray 3741
1977 Teleray 3841
1977 Teleray 4041
1978 Teleray 1061
1979 Teleray 10
1979 Teleray 11
1979 Teleray 12
1980 Teleray 14
<1981? Teleray 100
1982 Teleray 16
1985 Teleray 20-7305
<1990? Teleray 30

I have some additional material on the 960 that isn't up yet on
bitsavers. The 960 and 980 share some peripheral interfaces.
Did you end up with the 990 system as well?
Anyone know an inexpensive source for prototype DIY circuit boards?
From time to time, I like to use them to prove out ideas, and I'm
running low on stock.

After that, I learned to drop by keypunch to occasionally chat with
the ladies (it was comprised entirely of women), and occasionally
drop off some munchies and other things. They knew me and I knew
And I never had an issue with keypunch after that.
As a matter of fact my very first job was also in a service bureau and
that's where I also learned the importance of being able to charm the
ladies, a skill that's served me well (and gotten me into considerable
trouble) in subsequent years...

Well, as he gets banned from one forum/list after another, he just moves on
to the next; looks like he's found a home here at last...
To his credit some people have apparently bought from him with no issues,
but I'd still be wondering if any of the stuff he's flogging now is part of
the loot he stole from fellow hobbyists in his prime...
[I hope this is on-topic; I believe the machine is at least 20 years old]
I have a NEC Spinwriter 5525 printer that is available for the cost of
shipping (free if you pick it up). The printer is a wide carriage and
appears to have a RS232 serial interface. I do not know if the
printer works or not.
The machine is located in Langdon Alberta Canada (postal code is T0J
1X1) which is approximately 10 minutes east of Calgary.
The machine is rather heavy. I estimate 50 pounds or more. If there
is no interest, the machine is headed to the e-waste recycling.
I can send pictures upon request.

I just joined this mailing list today on the advice of more than one vintage
computing contact. I was wondering if anyone could tell me anything about
the Protec Microsystems PRO-83 Z80 Single-Board Computer. I have conducted
an exhaustive search of the Internet and found only two sites (one from a
surplus store and a picture of it from a museum). I would appreciate any
information available, especially information regarding the power supply and
peripheral devices. Thank you very much.

I have non working 3000/37s with possibly good drives and a 3000 micro GX
that works but has a bad drive. I have tried to boot the micro GX from the
3000-37 drives and get this far.

Performing a Coldstart
Following Volumes not found
List Volume tables ?
Seems to freeze after that. It does this on 2 different drives.
Is this even possible to do ???
Does anyone have a OS tape for one of these ??? and which manuals
cover the boot menu and/or startup.
I would like to get both going but the 3000-37's have dead mother boards.
Stan Sieler, are you still around. Seems like every search I do comes up with
your name and advice.
