re: [midatlanticretro] Reminder for Workshop: Installing CP/M on your S-100 computer , signup begins today, Feb.1st
If you have other computers such as the Kaypro, Advantage, etc which already have CP/M running, you can use this too. They just need to be 100% working. As this is not a repair workshop.
Basically, even though it would have CP/M already running on this, the hands-on training will show you all the technical details about how to configure and install CP/M on your current machine. Then you can apply this knowledge to any other machine that wouldn't have CP/M already.
You would need to get prepared with all the technical manuals for your machine to extract the configuration info so you can edit and patch the CP/M source code to support your machine (that's what you will learn). We would help in locating any manuals you might be missing.
It's Feb and that means TCF http://www.tcf-nj.org is coming in a few months and I didn't go last year and from what I was told, thats OK.
Is there any reason to go this year?
Is anyone going this year?
I am more looking forward to Spring March party than TCF, but might as well get it out there.
