I had a flexowriter that was at least a full generation newer than that
least judging by the general styling. It needed a procedure about every
or two to free up a bunch of oval-shaped wheels that touched a spinning
drum that looked like a typewriter platen roll. When the oval wheel
dug into the spinning roller it flipped the roller over, driving the type
bars up to the paper. I think the roller got a glaze and the wheels
catch or something. otherwise it worked fairly reliably, and had paper tape
reader and punch.
Sure there isn't a typo in the url? http://www.vintage-computer.com/vcforum/ works fine for me.

What's happened to the VCF? I'm just getting a place holder page that sells web sites.
I attempted to run an RT-11 program under V10.1 of RSTS/E.
Is there any way of invoking ODT or a DEBUG package under
RSTS/E which is similar the SDX.SYS in RT-11 or "/DEBUG"
I can LINK ODT into the RT-11 program and use ODT that way.
But I though that RSTS/E might support something a bit
more user friendly than ODT at this point?
I know people occasionally access my domain at
classic-computers.org.nz for articles and resources. Just a note to
say it's down due to the 9GB monthy bandwidth allowance being
exceeded. The hosting service seems unresponsive at the moment (in
other words, I requested a bandwidth increase two days ago but
Hopefully it will be back up soon, but just letting folk know it could
be as late as the 1st April, when the allocation is reset (but
hopefully not that long..mind you with Easter coming up...!)
In a vain attempt to find bits of a Ferranti Argus I uploaded myself with some parts of the iconic cold-war-era Bristol Bloodhound missile.
Which I don't really want....
What would be appropriate venues / mailing lists to get rid of those parts ?
( items : radar receiver dish with positioner, accelerometer, gyro, altimeter, bulkhead, but very litte electronics )
Location : Switzerland
The chap that sold me the parts uses the Bloodhound's ramjet engine as a coathanger.....
Are there any surviving Argus 100 or 200 systems ?
Hello all! I have recently added a DEC VT101 to my collection. Only
problem is, it came with no keyboard. The way I understand it, any VT10x
keyboard will work with it. So, does anyone have an extra that they
would be willing to part with? Thanks a lot! -- Tom.
