Just another Rinky-Dink Florida hamfest

I bet you're going to be disappointed in the TI chassis, Joe. TI made (back
in the '70's) a line of their microcomputers which used a connector and a
card form-factor like the S-100, sort-of, but which wasn't S-100. One easy
way to tell the difference, I believe is that the TI system, which I never
inspected, hence can't say for certain, used a global power supply rather
than the s-100's on-card local regulation. Their power and other supply
leads were in different places, too.

Let me know if I'm wrong, Joe, as I hope you're getting something you can
use, but something tells me . . .
