Re: Burroughs/ Electodata B205 console computing info?
I did a groups search for vintage computing, your group seemed active with no spam, so
many dead groups, either no activity or they are taken over by spammers. This one looks
ok to me. I'm seasonal for location, New England summers, and soon Florida winter
I'm slowly, but steadily building a LIS B9 replica, and got interested in the Burroughs along
the way, thinking of making a replica and would be interesting to use a PIC or OOPiC
microprocessor to emulate it's original function or at least mimic some of the flashing
indicator patterns seen in LIS episodes.
I mean heck why build a random bank of flashing lamps, they should have some basic
process representation or even functionality of the original machine right? I figured
someone might have done similar or at least have some info on the console. there is
actually a fair amount of info I have already found, nothing about emulation though, I
remember seeing Atari and other older system emulation programs that run on newer
stuff so thats where I got the idea.
