Cool. I got one last year. I'd had the manual since I was a kid (1978),
and *eventually*, the computer was attracted to the docs.

Still waiting for one...

Found one in L.A. at an aviation surplus shop for $10. Haven't powered it
up yet. I would love to find some information on what S-100 cards work
with it, since it has two S-100 slots in the upper left corner.

Never seen one.

Never heard of it. What's it like?

RCA COSMAC VIP - 1K to 4K RAM, hex keypad, 512 byte ROM, cassette interface,
optional CHIP-8 interpreter (to be typed in and saved to tape). I still
have my original VIP tape; I was thinking of cutting a CD.

Now _I'm_ drawing a blank.
