Well folks I'm back in the game. Was busy since September or so with
work and the holidays and so on and so forth.
At work, I had to totally rebuild our dialup huntgroups (I run a
state-wide ISP if anyone recalls), set up some Points-of-Presence in a
couple other cities, redundacize our connectivity to the Net and so on.
In other news, I received some more documentation and expansion cards for
the SWTPC 6800 machine thanks to Eric Chomko. It's still a bit flakey
but I have a couple ideas about that and I just have to sit down and hang
it off the terminal server.
I have an online store setup but not completely modified for my purposes.
It has some dummy data in it right now and the categories need to be
remapped but you can visit it at
and get a feel
for what it'll be like. I'll use it to sell items for which I have no use.
The gentleman with the PDP-11/84 called and wants me to retrieve the beast.
We were held back because the week after I visited it back in September
they tore down the loading dock and were rebuilding it so we had no way
to get the 84 out of the building.
I'll be attending several hamfests this year seeking out goodies and you
can visit my hamfest list (the 98 listing isn't ready yet) at
Also, there's a local guy who is offering me an "Altair blue" S100 case
and power supply. I don't know if it's an actual Altair case or just the
same color but I've got to get over and take a look at it.
That's all for now...
