I have several unbuilt boards including an IMSAI SIO and the National SCMP
microprocessor evaluation kits. For my part, I have no intention of ever
building them since I view them as a part of history. I tried about a year
ago to get an unbuilt Heatkit H?? computer that was designed to go into (I
think) an H19? terminal. He decided to allow his class to build it <sigh>
but we all have different reasons for doing things.
