Re: Oops -- RE: [midatlanticretro] S-100 systems
I would be interested in S-100 era, S-50, etc. I am sure there are a lot of
others. A lot of us in this group are new to the S-100 hardware and we
need to learn more to even know what we need, if you know what I mean. I
was too young to have access to systems from the 70's. You could both
educate and sell at a swap meet like we have planned.
A working S-100 system today is an accomplishment.
