Hi All
 If someone on the list gets this, I have quite a bit of software
that I've collected for this machine. It looks like someone has
changed the machine to be a CPM machine. It looks to have both
the serial ( rs232/20mil ) and cassette interfaces. It seems to
be missing the video board ( where the keyboard would connect to ).
If someone gets this, I do have a spare video board that I might
be talked into trading for something else, if someone wanted to
bring it back to an original condition. I also have quite a
bit of documentation for the Poly88. It does require a parallel
keyboard to work with the video board ( As I recall all console
I/O can be revectored at boot using a ROM at 400h. This could
make the serial be the console but I don't think the debug
monitor is revectored ).
 Although, the ROM's on the CPU starts at address 0000h, there
is a control bit that one can shadow the ROM and allow the machine
to exist in complete RAM. I can explain this to anyone that wants
to do so. The software I have is all Poly88 cassette based software.
I have an assembler, BASIC, many of the Poly demo programs and
I also have a ROM based tiny BASIC as well. I have also written
code to bootstrap a system from the serial port ( does require
the system debug monitor to function ).
