Interesting. I have a Plessy Quniverter and it looks a bit different. 
Handy device though.

I would be interested in that GTSC manual, I have one of those boards, 
don't see one in your stash. With the manual I could probably figure out 
how to make an RSX driver and stop entering the date and time all the 
time :-)
