;-) Clearing the snow from my glasses, I saw Lawrence Walker typed:

Tho I doooo like Tandys, I haven't found any of their "business" marketed
machines yet for my collection... but I may be close.

Twas up at the local RS two days ago, and this is the guy that had the
Tandy 2000 for sale last year -- for $900 plus monitor. Well, methinks that
system got tossed (he said a lot of machines got tossed in the move to the
new building 5-6 months ago... :-( ) but lo & behold on the upper shelf in
the back room was an all-in-one with twin 8" drives! I asked: Is that thar
a Model II? and Sir Store owner says: No, it's a Model 12. It may be
finding it's way to my collection soon.

Oh, anyone need a "brand-new" copy of Xenix (I think it's Xenix 286) --
he's still got a box of that up there, and methinks a little Tandy 2000
software as of yet. (He still has a 1000SX on display, too.)

Gotta find out if he's got any software for that Mod12!

Wow! An 8 foot floppy drive! That *must* be cool!!! ;^>


Sorry, can't help out much on the ModII for now, but maybe soon... ;-)
