Please everyone, do not echo that nasty subject line.

<IIRC, the Tandy modifications were the L2 basic board, 16K RAM, Numeric
<keypad, and the lower case mod. All others were 3rd party. I could make a
<slight case that 3rd party mods are slightly less original, but I'm not
<going to press the point. I don't think Tandy ever offered a *2 speedup.

The *2 speed up was not RS, however the concession was that machine
modified with those in for repair would be serviced at normal rates if
the mod was unrelated to the problem. If a new logic was required do to
extensive damage the pricing was different (expensive).

<They may well have offered various fixes to the cassette interface - I
<don't know.

They did! The best one was a little board with a 4040/4001 on it.

<There were many 3rd party mods. I've seen a M1 with 48K RAM in the
<keyboard unit. I've even seen one (much hacked) power up with a CASS?
<prompt. Yes, it was running M3 BASIC.

there were some rally nice mods too.
