I am sorry, but I was not aware that this list was about collecting classic
I thought this list was about classic computers, of which collecting is a
I am not interested (well, not as much) in the "hows and whys". I want to
them, use them, fix them. I don't really collect them simply to collect.

You might argue that I had to collect one to use it,
but thats not necessarily the case. I could have bought my Kaypro new and
still be using it.

If this list IS about COLLECTING, then I will unsubscribe myself as well.

On something more hardware related, I have a Radio Shack TRS-80 Color
Computer Controller, Cat. No 26-3129. I am assuming it is a disk controller,
can someone give me some confirmation on that?

Also, if someone still needs the definicon board stuff, I finally got my PC
together, so I can read the 5.25" disks.

And while I am babbling, not really classic computer, but classic test
related, I have a Simpson 303 that I have never been able to get to work. It
to need the battery, and it is a rechargeable model.
