Re: [midatlanticretro] This Sat in Wilmington
What was so ironic is that he called based on our Craigslist.com ad (we mention having interest in Commodore/Tandy/etc), and he was throwing a Hail Mary pass to see if anyone would possibly know how to fix 8050 drives and work with a CBM 256-80, one of the rarest computers ever sold in production by Commodore. He could not believe at first that I even knew about these systems.
As many of you on this list know, I kind of specialize about the B Series Commodores, so I should be at least able to get his disks backed up and onto an emulator, if not actually repair his drives. He told me he had a number of 8050's and 8250's, and a SFD-1001, but only the SFD-1001 still works.
I will let you know when I know more about the project. He still needs to show up with the hardware. I will ask if he wants to be interviewed.
