Can scan it for ya if you're interested. Might also be able to find some others, was a popular project in those days. Can also ship you a Burroughs L series digital cassette drive (with some docs) if you're up to the challenge of interfacing it :) Also have tech info on some old computers (e.g. RS M100, AIM65) using cassette I/O.

All look interesting providing shipping does not kill me as I
live far from large urban centers.
If nothing else I will take the bytes off you if you wish to
part with them. If the digital cassette does not need a power
supply I may be interested. Shipping may be best by greyhound.
Right now I have the computer stuff on a breadboard. I would
like to a get a PCB board made but I have not yet found a place
buy and program the prom I need. ( EDC1441 20pin PLCC from
Altera ) Until I get the computer finished and stand alone I
will use a old PC as smart terminal and not need real I/O until
spring. By chance you would not have a terminal too? Ben.
