Heh, heh. Gloat, gloat.

I have the book, the original magazine articles, AND a TVT itself, which I
built at the time,
complete will the order-out keyboard. I could never find the Molex
connectors one was supposed to
have, and had to make my own by taking apart an AMP connector. The darn
MOS serial memory
chips were a royal pain - flaky as all get out. I even built a crude UART
and hooked it up to an
acoustic coupler one day long enough to log in, buy my UART clock wasn't
crystal controlled, so I
never really used it as a terminal for dialing in.

But I did use it as a display device on my Altair for a while, until I
could afford the Processor
Technology VDM board.
