Are you sure anyone is still using the Harris Mini's? BTW, I believe they
were a Harris 550. They were supposed to be phased out around the same time
as the Honeywell DPS-6's that made up SNAP I. I think NEETS Module 21 has a
little info on the Harris Mini.

Also, if anyone has the sourcecode for the "Star Trek" game that ran on the
Harris systems I'd love to get my hands on a copy! It wasn't the standard
X-Y Grid based Star Trek that has run on just about every platform (although
I think they did have one like that also).
