Greetings everyone, it's Been a while since i posted here.

I had picked up some modcomp minicomputers over the past couple years. A
modcomp classic, with a nice front panel with binary swiches, similar to a
pdp 11. There is a modcomp 32 as well, the machine boots from internal
floppy drives.

I was eager to pick up these machines, and save them from being thrown out.
I picked up all of the documentation as well. Everything. A truckload of os
information. I started to scan it all, but about 3/4 of the way through, my
scanner broke.

The 32 machine was not stored in climate controlled conditions before i
picked it up, and is a bit more worn. It is designed to boot off floppys to
load the microcode into the cpu... but the floppys... id be supprised if
anything survived. Stored in bad conditions.

The classic has internal microcode roms and will not have the same
troublesome problem.

I have been unable to devote the time and space to these machines as i had
planned. I have been far too busy working at ibm, i am planning to shut
down my side interests and focus on my dec pdp 11 stuff and ibm mainframe.

I am looking to see if anyone would be interested in buying these. I spent
a great deal getting them moved and keeping them in cool climate controlled
storage, i am looking to see if i can get any offers and break even.

Keep in mind, they are the size of a computer rack and heavy.

I will post back with pictures soon.
