DIGI-COMP 1 Assembly Instructions now available

Thankfully, I was using a T1 at the time I first looked at this page and
didn't notice the size of the images. The first thing you should do is
reduce them from RGB to Grayscale. I tried it and it doesn't reduce
image quality at all. Also, does anyone currently own the rights to
this? I would like to make an HTML and DVI version of it, which would be
much easier to read, since it wouldn't involve as much horizontal

Now, some questions about the computer itself.
A) How much did it cost in 1998 dollars?
B) Was there ever a DIGI-COMP II?
C) What type of plastic was used in it?
D) Has anyone tried to make one?
E) How popular was it?
F) What year was it terminated?

Basically, a brief history.
