peripheral. It can draw points on the XY screen and also has A/D and
digital I/O. On the 8/E I used the VC8E which is the point plot only.
Every model of the point plotting used incompatable instuctions for operation.
In theory the AX08 should work with my straight 8. With only 4k memory
the spacewar I used last time won't run but I have a simpler one which
should. End of this month is the next big push on working on the restoration.
