Any former Philips/Magnavox VideoWriter users/owners/hackers?

Still, I have got one. At least if you are referring to the Philips
"VideoWriter", the Philips 'wordprocessor' with the smallish rectangular
CRT and a 3.5" floppy drive next to it.
I bought such a unit (with keyboard) for 50 Euro (approx. $65) to use
the CRT in my StarShip, so my intentions were not so good for it :-)
However, the vertical size of the CRT is a bit too high; its width is
perfect. So in the end I can not use the CRT in my StarShip and have
a VodeoWriter in the attick. Never considered selling it because the
weight would increase the costs with a factor 2 ...
If I ever intend to do something with it, I now know where to get
the electrical diagrams, Jos :-)
