- Jun 1, 2009Thank you!
I think the next time at infoage is best, as I am 70 miles south of you, but I'll see if I feel like taking the drive someday.

Which I have.
Joe, I'm fairly certian (I'm at work right now and can't confirm) that I have an IBM manufactured CGA monitor (it's either color or monochrome) that's somewhat period correct.
I need to test if it works, but it's yours if you want it. Then all you need to find is the correct keyboard for a complete system.
Not sure where you live, but I'm in Belleville NJ, if you're willing to take a drive to my place one evening, you can pick it up.
Either that, or wait for the next MARCH event, and I'll toss it your way then (keep reminding me, I forget easily).
Let me know what you'd prefer.
