On the 8088, guys. If you are thinking of getting into S-100 bus 16 bit systems really recommend you start with that board. I hope I won’t regret it, but I will try and hand hold beginners a bit with this board to get them going. I will checkout an assembled board in one of my systems if you have problems in yours to help narrow down issues.
Also I do hope people realize that this is a “not for profit” operation and that there is risk ordering these boards in that some screw-up in the layout could have happened. Andrew and I typically do a few prototypes, but Murphy is always hanging around!
