Tim's own version of the Catweasel/Compaticard/whatever

I am probably one of the least electronically sophisticated members of this
list with narrower interests than many (S-100, CP/M, 8080, Z-80, NorthStar,
Apple, IBM - no significant DEC or UNIX experience). But as an archivist
interested in preserving old "stuff" I can appreciate the availability of
the "Tim-Weasel" even if I can't offer much in the way of help in design of
hardware or writing of software. (Though I have done some documentation - I
did much of Steve Ciarcia's original home control manual and the HAL
brainwave biofeedback unit. So if that is of any use ....)

I guess I am the fairly knowledgeable CP/M-educated "power user" of the late
70's and early 80's. I would certainly encourage you and the rest of the
list to make this an open source type project that could be assembled by
someone like me (it took me two weeks of soldering to get my Sol-20
together, and then 6 weeks of &^$&$*-ing around to find the 2 diodes I put
in backwards, numerous cold solder joints, etc. in order to get it working).

In short - go for it.
