I have a tube as well (as do many of us, here and on the PDP-8 lists).
What I'd like to know is if anyone has any hard info on the Intercept
Jr. or the Jolt. I have brief descriptions in a 1978 Popular Electronics
special issue in a section reviewing "all" of the available microcomputers
of the day.

That's all I've got. I know they aren't particularly powerful machines
(ISTR without external logic, the IM6100 is limited to 4KW, among other
issues), but I'd like to know more about them just the same.

I also bought that tube of IM6100s in the hope that by the principle
of "classic attraction", I'd run across a VT78... hasn't happened
yet. :-)
