By the way, thanks to Sellam's list of links I came across www.m88k.org
the other day. Doesn't seem to be much there at present, but if there
isn't a logical site around already for pooling 88k resources it might
be as good a place as any to start, assuming the author's willing.

I need to get some photos of my XD88 in the next few days (I'm too busy
having fun using it at the moment!) at which point I'll see if he wants
copies and some blurb about the machine to host.

If anyone ever finds the 24bit framebuffer for one or the OS tapes, then
shout :)

Bet you're on the wrong side of the pond from me!
