Damn... I've been sitting on a real s-100 exidy expansion box for the
sorcerer for a long time now (no, its not for sale) and I can't find an
sorcerer to go with it eiither... alas

Hmm... I'd be willing to trade a Heathkit H8 or maybe a TRS6000HD, or....
if that would pry one from somebody's hands...
