Re: S-100 8086 CPU board ordered (finally!)

Hi Kipp!  Thanks!  I am out of the S-100 unbuffered prototyping boards
but have several of the S-100 buffered prototyping boards.

The S-100 buffered prototyping boards have less prototyping area but
contains the dedicated bus circuitry that nearly every S-100 board
requires regardless.

I hope this helps!  Thanks and have a nice day!
