  1. Hey I've got one if someone who can dissect it wants it.
  2. I loved a game called Mig Alley Ace but don't know if it worked on modem or just head to head in person
  3. I've got a physical copy of one but it's packed up i think. I'm sure it's not 100 pages though.
  4. I've posted it on eBay Sent from my SM-G988U1 using Tapatalk
  5. I posted another item on ebay - some kind of wire wrap dialer - also have the grom box on ebay http://ebay.us/FUDQSz?cmpnId=5338273189
  6. I do remember talk of the Z80 chip being used or contemplated at one time when I was there - but I was in Defense group so didn't know where I heard about it. John Phillips was working on the machine software, he might have been where I heard of it but I don't see him around at this time.
  7. So this adds to my 15 minutes of fame. In case you are interested, I played bass guitar for The Nervebreakers, a Dallas "punk" group that opened for the Clash, the Ramones , the Police, the Boomtown Rats, and the Sex Pistols as well as serving as backing band for Roky Erickson of 13 Floor Elevators fame.
  8. And I'm glad it went to capable hands in the community
  9. Now I'm excited to see what you find out. I think you won't have much trouble getting it working. I remember it had a video tearing on screen and the other one , computer museum item, didn't and now of course nothing recognizable is output.
  10. Just fyi, I've been corresponding with the museum that has the better prototype at their location that I donated. They did add a credit to me for donation as I requested and I enquired if they were willing to turn it on to capture the boot screen but they said they don't do that with the artifacts as they don't want to risk them being damaged. So I hope whomever buys the one on ebay will get good information from roms at least and hopefully gets video working again.
  11. I don't think it's lost, the listing I found recently says they have the physical item. I'm asking that they add a "donated by Robert Childress " to it like it had on Boston Computer Museum page. https://www.computerhistory.org/collections/catalog/X720.86
  12. Pictured is the one I donated to the Computer Museum
  13. The other one I had is on eBay currently rchildress is username
  14. It's listed http://ebay.us/2kVjeM?cmpnId=5338273189
