After stating that I expected TSX Plus to be available generally to the
collector community this week, I have had a number of folks request
access to TSX plus via private FTP.
Please be a bit patient and wait for me to post it to a new website I'm
in the process of creating. I now have full agreement from S&H to
generally release TSX Plus, COBOL, etc., to the collector community via
a simple download.
BTW: I have converted all of the original documentation, which was in HP
print file format to PDFs for easier and more general use.
Over time I will likely be able to release some of the utilities, etc.
that S&H used internally with TSX plus. Some time ago S&H gave me all
of their RL02 packs and a SMD drive with everything they had related to
the PDP-11 version of TSX. (They have a current version of TSX for X86
systems which is NOT free and is NOT part of this release).
Over time, there may be a project to scan the source listings and
recreate TSX Plus source code. (The source listings are available on
bitsavers.org (pdf/dec/pdp11/tsxPlus/listings/). Unfortunately, we are
missing the MACRO definitions in the source listings. Some of us are
working on that issue. (Note: All of the original PDP-11 source code was
accidentally lost by S&H).
I will also make available any software that other folks submit to me
related to TSX on my website.

Does anyone happen to have documentation, schematics, or software for the
Quay 900? It's a system based on the Quay 90F/MPS single-board Z80
computer and two MPI double-sided 8-inch floppy drives.
The drives are MPI part no. 77618022, apparently a 9406 variant but not
listed in the drive manual on Bitsavers. I suspect the pinout is close to
the SA800/850 pinout (industry standard), but I was surprised to find that
none of the variants in the 9406 manual have a pinout similar to that.

I bet I have them both; the trick would be finding them.
They seem to have broken it sufficiently now that nothing is returned after the end of October.
Is there anyone indexing Usenet that has a clue? It seems like all that is left is for-pay
services for searching alt.binaries.

One of the things I got was an RA60 drive. But it doesn't have any packs.
Does anyone in the UK have any RA60 packs they would be willing to part
I also got a VT320, but it looks to be a 100-120V model. Is it possible to
convert these easily to 220-240V?
I discovered that there is a little MMJ to RJ45 adapter called a H8584. I
know I can make cables that would remove the need for these, but they look
quite handy. Anyone in the UK have any of these spare?
I got a DECserver 900TM (see earlier thread about WWEN2.SYS). Manx has an
installation manual on it, but not a detailed operations manual. I don't
have the Flash RAM card which I guess is needed to persist the boot image
without having to boot off the network. Does anyone know what kind of card
it needs? I am told it is a CF card, but it looks like it needs some kind of
holder to hold the card, and I don't know how the image would get onto the
CF card, unless it does that itself after loading from the network.

blurt out the answer. Let people think about it a bit. I'll post the
answer in a couple of days. I came up with this sequence this morning for
use in an emulator I am working on.
Thanks to the efforts of several members, my Osborne Vixen is up & running
with a working display. But now the dang thing is begging me for a disc
that I don't have.. =/
Could someone possibly send me some boot-media for this machine? As things
sit, I don't even have a PC with a 5-1/4" drive installed, if (and that's
+if+) it were capable of writing discs for the Osborne format.
I've tried feeding it media for Epson & Kaypro CP/M machines, but no dice -
it rejects them without a second seek. Anyone know how to handle this?
