Re: [N8VEM-S100:1320] RomWBW on S-100 Project status...


Now that is what I call, "Ultra-Vintage". Nice :-)

Thank you responding to my request. I will add you to the list of interested builders.

When you get a chance, I would be interested on knowing more about the boards in your
system and the details of your integration.

We could add you to the builders journal area on the wiki if you are not there already,
and you could show off some pictures of your system there as well.

Nice to hear from you. I will keep in touch. Thanks for the offer to help.

I'm no expert, but please let me know if I can be of any help.
