- Aug 1, 1999I have 4K & 8K cassette BASIC 4.0 and I'll help
with research. You can publish the source if you want.

and dig through my archives and find a disassembler.
After that I'll get both hard and soft sectored 8-inch
drives running in 8800B. When I get to that point, I can
transfer files between systems using RS232 or by
exchanging soft-sectored disks. That is the long way around,
but I don't have much development software in MITS
format.<br><br>Are there club members with a working cassette
interface, disassembler, and communication software? Is
anyone set up to move Altair software to a CD or other
modern media? I'd also like to hear from anyone with an
