I have the TRS 80 Model III from Bob, with a bad power supply but all else
OK, if anyone wants to make the trip to Wilmington to get it. This is one
of Bob's from the pickup today. He also gave me another one, with VRData
drives, I will hold onto that one for a while and use it myself.
I am guessing it blew a rice cap on the power supply, and if I am correct
eventually I will fix it myself. Bob tested the other components and said
that they were OK.
There is no rush, I will hold onto it, use it, whatever. I am sure someone
eventually will be able to make use of it.
Coincidentally I had another stock TRS 80 Model III for sale over Christmas
on craigslist.com, but I never sold it. I may put that one on Ebay at some
point, not overly motivated to do so. If you see it for sale, do not buy
it as I would have a free one for MARCH people only and you would be
wasting your money.
I like the idea of keeping things free/cheap to MARCH people, and retail
prices for others. I hope people agree with that philosophy. If we share
amongst ourselves that's one of the things that makes being in our club
