Let's try again with the right name in the Subject line!
It's not really classic (although it does try to pretend to be
but does anyone here do anything with the P112 SBC? I am trying to
get 8" disks running on it but I am seeing some rather strange behavior.
Winter is upon us. Time to snuggle up in front of your Commodore 64 with
some old timey games and applications, and I've got plenty of them to keep
you busy throughout the holidays.
The complete list is too long to reproduce here, so please go to the
following link, which will take you directly to the Commodore 64 Software
section of my Virtual Warehouse of Computing Wonders:
The disks are untested. I can test upon demand but then the price will go
up for my time involved. Otherwise they are sold as is. They were all
stored under proper conditions, with many of the packages having been
stored in ziplock bags. Some of the manuals have highlighting in them from
the previous owner but otherwise most everything is in very good to
excellent condition, as indicated for each listing. Photographs accompany
each listing (the link under the Additional Information column).
Rather than attempt to price these individually, I'll simply take offers on
one, some, many, or all of these titles. Preference and priority will go
to the larger orders.
Please direct any questions to me directly via e-mail.
I've got a thoroughly tested and working Canon Mdd210 5.25" floppy
mechanism here. I don't need such a special mech, any 360k drive would
do. If you want this particular mechanism for some reason, just let me
know and we can arrange a trade for a more ordinary one.
I'm trying to convert some C code so it'll compile on TOPS20 with KCC.
KCC is mostly ANSI compliant, but it needs to use the TOPS20 linker, which
has a limit of six case-insentive characters. Adam Thornton wrote a Perl
script that successfully does this for Frotz 2.32. The Frotz codebase
has evolved past what was done there and so 2.50 no longer works with
Adam's script. So I've been expanding that script into something of my
own, which I call "snavig". It seems to be gradually working more and
more, but I fear the problem is starting to rapidly diverge because it
still doesn't yield compilable code even on Unix. Does anyone here have
any knowledge of existing tools or techniques to do what I'm trying to do?
This is part of a project to get Infocom and other Z-machine games running
once again on PDP10 mainframes, either real or emulated. First up is to
get the bare minimum of a current Z-machine emulator running on TOPS20.
Then we can work on screen-handling, a disk pager, and porting to other
PDP10 operating systems. I'm hoping that this will lead to fun exhibits
wherever PDP10s are displayed in museum or faire settings.
 Change an objects shape.
 Infocom's Z-machine emulators paged zcode from disk, but Frotz simply
sucks the whole zcode file into memory.

Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?

Surfaced on Ycombinator. This one looks good. Something old, something
new, etc. Like my kind of project :-)

Was going through a box of stuff someone gave me ages ago in keeping
with my philosophy of grab first ask questions later.
At the bottom found a SORD keyboard (regrettably not the whole thing) -
looks like it comes from a M68. Photo:
As this is all I have of a SORD (so I am unable to test it) I figure it
may be of use to someone else on this list.
(Would appreciate coverage of package and postage from Mortlake Victoria
Australia 3272 please. Please note that its the size of a keyboard and
is a little weighty so you'll need to factor that in. Alternatively I
will be in Melbourne in January 2020 if someone more "local" wants it).

On Thu Jul 19 14:36:27 CDT 2018..Zilog 8000 system (model 20 and model 32) replacement boards
..As far as the System 8000 model 20 are conserved their microprocessor board schematics and firmware can be found on the internet but the microprocessor and the MMU's might be hard to get. ? (out of production for some time now).
.. As far as the MMU's are concerned some System 8000 clones used a different MMU with a custom mapping PROM and or others use a Intelligent MCU to emulate the Zilog MMU's....As far as the Model 32 is concerned that a little different, without the original microprocessor board you could always down grade it to a lesser model. It would be easy to get the Z8001 microprocessor on to a 32 bit data bus.? Just some extra data latches if you could find some one to make a custom microprocessor PCB.Use the Z8001 microprocessor pins Bit//word, AD0, AD1 for data bus size signals.AD1 is for data bits 17 to 24 and data bits 17 to 32 depending on the status of Bit//Word and AD0 singals.AD0 is for data bits 0 to 16 with the correct status of Bit//word and AD0 signal.??Bit//Word with AD0 controllers either a upper byte/Lower byte or 16-bit word transfers...Memory greater that 16M with the Z8001 microprocessor on a full 32-bit address bus is possible with a paged memory management circuit. Drivers ?? by who ??..With the model 32 (and some if its clones) on board firmware and or operating enhancements where used for Z8001 ( and some Z80,000)? microprocessor compatibility.? The only other solution is to reverse design a AT&T 3B2 computer back to the Zilog System 8000 bus or use a custom made ARM based microprocessor card with Z8001 emulation in ROM.?..Most of the Z8000 based microprocessor system I have dealt with are newer than the model 32 or are older then the Zilog MMU's chips.?..Any feed back on this email is welcome at ZilogZ80.swingatYahoo.ca? ? ?At=@ please have a subject (Anti spam)..
I have a TRS-80 Model III with a IV upgrade in it (non gate array).
I have a hunch that one or two of the HALs are bad (the primary one
Anyone have the JED files to program any of these HALs into PALs or
Anyone know a source for these ?
Anyone know if these can be read, or if they are protected (for
example, if I were able to borrow some working ones, could they be
duplicated ?) ?
