   I did somewhat better. I picked up several CDC core memory boards (to
help finance my collection!) and an old Tektronix Multi User Developement
system (Tektronix 8540 and 8560) with a 68000 CPU pod. I just posted some
pictures at
"http://www.intellistar.net/~rigdonj/tek-developement/8560-bk.jpg" and
"http://www.intellistar.net/~rigdonj/tek-developement/8540-bk.jpg". Sorry
the pictures aren't any better but I just got home and unloaded the stuff
and I haven't had time to clean it or look at it closely yet. The 8560
uses an 8 inch floppy drive. I have soem disk here that are marked
"Tek-DOS", I'm hoping that they're for this system. Does anyone know
anything about these?
