What varieties of C2? I have a C2OEM a C2NET and a C2NETB,
according to the ID plates. Whether they are still what OSI
had in mind for those configs I don't know. The C2NET was just
case, backplane and power supply when I got it, I've been adding
boards as I acquire them. I guess technically it's really a C3
now, as it has a 555 CPU in it.
I don't have a C4 in my collection. I passed on one about five
years ago. It was in pretty good shape, with most of the docs
and software, but the guy wanted $150 for it. I haven't seen one
since and I'm starting to kick myself for not taking it.

A C8? Doesn't ring a bell. What CPU? Was it OSI 48 pin bus?
I'll have to dig through my old Bytes. At least I can just scan
the back covers!
