4741Re: [midatlanticretro] any vintage computers under the tree/minorrah/etc?
- Dec 29, 2006Bill I need the system disks for the xerox 820-II (5 1/4), I have the following boot disks: Dec Rainbow, Eagle II, IBM cp/m 86, kaypro II, I, NCR Decisionmate V, northstar horizon, osborne 1, executive, Sanyo MBC 1250, Televideo 803, various TRS-80, Victor 9000 (dos only) Vector 4 (maybe). I'm fairly sure that most of these work at least they did at one time but they havn't been tested recently. I need the xerox 820, televideo 802, NEC-APC 8" dos and/or cpm86 and Victor 9000 cp/m. Someone should be putting together a boot disk archive - I've had very little luck in downloading disk images and getting them to work but I don't have a computer background. I've had no luck with teledisk. If I can help anyone out with these disks let me know - I may not be able to make copies so you would have to try what I have and send them back. Mike
Note to Evan: sorry i havn't been able to help at Infoage - I hope to have some free time in the future

1973 Paddleball Arcade machine. This is a Williams PONG clone. Takes
dimes. Needs a new transformer. Worked up to 2004, I was told. The
display is OK. Owned by Cassidy of atarionline. com, donated to Mark of
phillyclassic. com, sold to me.
Xerox 820 - II. with hard drive/disk drive unit, in original boxes -
Works! I have been able to make copies of the system disks if anyone
has an 820-II and needs a boot disk or wants to attempt to format a
same system's hard drive.
Tandy Radio Shack pocket computer - works OK, screen is a little burned.
Also, on 12/16/06
Bryan POP gave me some disk drives - thanks!
CBM 8250 dual IEEE drive - needs some TLC
CBM 2031 single IEEE drive - needs a new DOS ROM (I think...5 beeps is
the error code) I hope to pull one from a more common and sacrifice-
able VIC 1541 drive
