Apple IIc (not IIC+) details

Yes, I'll do that, largely because they have a branch here in Denver and
I've known Stu and Lou for over 25 years and know they'll sell whatever at
top $$$.

The connectors I've seen in the Denver store are the solder-type and I'd
prefer the IDC type if available. Since the IDC connectors are plastic it's
really easy to set one up in a milling machine and take an appropriately
large chunk out of the middle, gluing the two halves back together
afterward. I've done that several times when odd-sized connectors were

Since I'm in the prototyping business, I do whatever I can to make my stuff
look like it was "meant to be that way," thereby avoiding the Rube Goldberg

If they haven't got 'em in stock I'll have the boys call St. Louis and get
me a set.

Thanx for the info.
