would bite. I worked on all the equipment in the pile and expressed an
interest, but wouldn't give firm prices. Other Apple-clone guys (Ernest
at apple2clones.com) was also very interested. This fellow picked up all
the stuff at the famous Franklin "yard sale" at the disco.
If anyone wants to lead the project, I'll volunteer to assist. It'll be
fun to see all this stuff again. All of the portables are Franklin CXs,
a "portable" machine that could read many different disk formats, ran
CP/M as well as FDOS (Franklin's much-improved DOS), etc.
Hey Bob Grieb, are you interested? You worked on the CXs, right?
