When did Cromemco rebrand IMSAI machines? I was under the impression
that Cromemco's boxes were all built by them, when they decided to
branch out from building add-in video cards and such for everybody's
S-100 system (as I recall, the TV Dazzler was the single most popular
upgrade in the history of the S-100 bus).
