228Re: [midatlanticretro] Paging Rich Cini - bringing your IMSAI?
- Apr 9, 2005Bill:
My first computer when I was young was a Commodore (then a Mac, then a PC)
so direct experience with the S100's is limited. I have a complete, working
(last time I used) Northstar Horizon system that I tried to restore but I
wound up sending it to a friend in Rochester for him to fix. Good thing,
too. There were so many problems with it it would have taken me months to
swat them down. The guy I got it from made some modifications to it that
were not documented and generally prevented it from working properly. Plus,
for whatever reason, he didn't send me a working memory card. It was a trip
getting it working.
