Just found this relic as I was organizing my office. So much for organizing now that I've found this timesuck. 😅 💻

@robert588 @SDF aaahh awesome!! the one my dad had was the first computer I ever used. I should never have let him scrap it! I still have the processor from it, at least: flickr.com/photos/amatecha/707 ... I don't know what it is with people and throwing away perfectly usable stuff, especially such rare items like that. I didn't understand its value at the time, being a kid who was more into my Macintosh and playing games, so I didn't fight to keep the old thing :\

@robert588 @SDF Nice.

I have a Panasonic Sr Partner with the cool thermo printer built in. But the keyboard is very poor and non-standard plug. On the TODO list is to see if its XT keyboard protocol so i can connect a usable keyboard.

@marathon@mastodon.online @robert588 the punch card decks were loaded into a punch card reader so that they could be printed.

Enjoying my two favorite toys this evening. The is way better than I remembered, between the built-in file explorer, built-in backup utility, mini port, hi-res greyscale , and nonvolatile storage on the Memory Stick. The of course is there being iconic, but that's a story for another day. @claudiom @nytpu @kelbot @robert588 @ajroach42 @goosey

@robert588 looks like UUCP hosts dalnet, rwsys, europa, kesher, gnosis and many other machines that SDF talked to are not listed there. The telephone number was a voice number, the 4 line hunt group started at (972)436-3281 plus a dedicated UUCP link for adaptex.

I built a Z80 computer that runs CP/M and this is what I do with it...lol

Repaired the power supply, cleaned the whole motherboard and re-seated ALL the ICs. Found some bent pins and repaired them. Apple ][+ is much happier now!
