Hi!  I would like to re-iterate John's sentiment on the S-100 board
projects.  These have proven to be inherently more complex (S-100/
IEEE-696) than other home brew projects due to board size,
functionality, and part count.  As a result they involve a measure of
risk.  On several occasions I have seriously considered renaming the
"N8VEM home brew computing project" to "Caveat Emptor" to emphasize
this is a *hobby* and there are no assurances or guarantees of any
kind, what so ever. We are all builders and *everyone* shares in the

Thanks and have a nice day!
