First, I have a question: Was there much difference between the Dragon 32
and the Dragon 64, or is that just a designation of how much memory it had?

Also, I have 1 1/2 IBM-PC Jr.'s sitting in my basement collecting dust.
They used to be complete, non-working machines (one with a "sidecar" I
believe it's called) whereas I did get one "almost working" with spares for
the second.

The almost working comes in as I didn't have a monitor for them, and altho
they did have the RF Modulator to use a TV with, I could never get a clear
picture thru that port. I could tell that the machine booted and worked,
and I could see changes on the screen so the keystrokes were being
recognized, and simple DOS commands did seem to have output, but it was
nowhere readable.

As such, right now I have 1 complete Jr with floppy drive, sidecar, and
128K mem expansion (I believe... hafta look at the chips & calculate the
storage) with an extra internal floppy drive, an extra motherboard, an
extra keyboard (neither are chicklet, and one has a few stuck keys) I think
there was a Lotus 123 cartridge with it (but I heard rumors that it needed
a disk as well?) and a basic cartridge. There may be more stuff, but I
haven't looked at it since the move...

Are you interested in it?
