Yep, I have a yellow DECWriter too. I've tried cleaning one of the VT's but to
no avail. I found a DECdirect catalog from 1983 with color pictures so soon
I'm off to the paint shop. I also found a working Osborne 1 without
boot disks, so now I'm in search of those + kermit as well.

One school in these areas used CP/M in education at least to 1992...
Visiotek machines if I remember correctly.
