Sorry, haven't had a chance to really go through inbound mail for a few
days... I'm so sick of work getting in the way of my hobby. I keep eyeing
that 50 year retirement goal. Course it'll be hard to find new classics in
10 years I bet :) I'd just about give my left arm to really make enough at
the hobby to just do it full time and quit work. Hey, I can dream.

I should have a spare logic board. I'm off work Monday through Wednesday of
this week. So goal 1 is to go through the vt100 post responses and get
everything shipped/disposed of. I'll let you know tonight or tomorrow. Was
up till 3:30am dealing with work stuff so I'm not sure I would recognize a
vt100 in my condition heh. Back at ya later.
