Wow, I think I am beginning to like this listserver! It has an LCD screen
with a decent keyboard on it. The size is approximately 12" wide x 8"
deep x 5" high and the LCD screen folds up typical of a portable. It has
a couple of standard bus size cards (one is missing) but uses the header
type connector (2 x 50?) instead of the gold fingers to plug into the
backplane. If this is a Gavilan, are docs, schematics, and parts still

One of the things on my wish list is a digital camera so I can easily
digitize photos of stuff like this.
