did your haul include the *source code* listings for HDOS? HDOS was one of
the few OS'es for which one could get source listings back then (of course
there was also UCSD Pascal). I'd love to pursue the possibility of posting
these on the internet somewhere if we could get permission from Zenith Data
Systems (I presume they're the owners of rights to this now?) There's
already a fair amount out there that's been reverse engineered but why not
make the original available?

haven't seen much traffic on this group about the H8 but it was a wonderful
machine in its own right. i've still got mine and it hums along just fine.
