Web Page Changes

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

I’m starting to update the web pages with a new structure, more pictures, etc.  In the mean time you’ll find lots of empty pages or ones with words but no useful information.  None of the old pages went away but some are being moved to different places.


Finally Getting Caught Up Again

Wednesday, May 13th, 2015

Sorry for the extended down time, but my WordPress theme got corrupted and I finally got some help from my ISP to get the old stuff out of the way,

VCF East was a ton of fun, as usual!  We were set up in the vendor area.  For some reason I never took a picture, but fortunately others did:

Photo (it’s the very last one… number 64)

The terminal is a Wyse 30.  Yes, I know it’s way too modern, but it’s an ASCII terminal and worked great.  Next to it is the 6800 SS-50 system, then the 6809 system, and finally the KIM-1.  I drove up Friday night and got set up, then drove back up Saturday morning.  Unfortunately, someone coming in the other direction at a light decided not to wait and made a left directly into my car… totaled.  Three hours later I finally made it to the show in a rental car.  At least my entire display was already at the show.

More updates coming.  And a lot of work on the SS-50 product pages.  Probably won’t all happen until this weekend.


Getting Ready for VCF East Next Weekend!

Saturday, April 11th, 2015

I’ve been building and testing boards, getting things packaged up, and starting to put all the “must go” items into one place so they aren’t forgotten.

Things we will have on display:

  • NEW 6809 SS-50 based system
  • 6800 SS-50 system
  • SD card interface for SS-40 systems (prototype)
  • Possibly a 1 MB SS-50 RAM board
  • KIM-1 system with our I/O Board and 60K RAM Board
  • Hopefully some entertaining software running on the systems

If you are attending VCF East, please look for us in the commercial area and say hello!  We’ll have some give-aways, especially if you say you read our blog!
