- Thanks Dave. I had forgotten about Andy's folklore.org. IMHO the slide show demo is something that should be located and preserved. I have a Fat Mac at home and it would be awesome to run the demo on it.Rich CiniSent from my iPhone

Does anyone know anything about the mechanics of this demo? It appears to

- Does anyone know anything about the "u SOKiT 68" ? (u=micro)
from CompuKits? Circa 1982. York Museum has a manual for this educational kit computer, but I'm looking for pictures and origin.
The manual shows schematics of the 6800 computer, using 2 boards. Schematics date back to 1976, board versions date 1980 to 1982.
