       A couple of weeks ago, I posed a question to the group
concerning the Tandy Model 102 I had aquired and it's mysterious
option ROM. Well today I finally got the 102 connected to my 486
laptop (used as a file server) and backed up all the files I'd been
working on so that I could experiment with the option ROM a bit. It
turns out to be a Point-of-sale program! It even has 'Payroll' and
data transfer options. It was meant to be used by more than one
store (it asks for a store # upon install) and is also password

        Anyway, it's pretty interesting and I figured some of you
might find it so as well. I also managed to dig out the NEC PC-8221A
printer and got it working again. Too bad it's print seems to fade
to near-nothing in a year or so, though it starts out black. It does
work nicely with the 102 and doesn't even require formatting software.
