it needs to run is a 286, Mono VGA (EGA
may work as well) and 1Mb RAM. It may
work with less, but this is the minimum
I have access to.
To: 999 (all members) From: K4V (Trevor Crapper) Subject: Help/Wanted I have two single 80/40 switchable disc drives that I would dearly like to couple together to make a double disc drive. Viglen used to market a device called a 'Duck' when they were still dealing in BBC hardware which did the job. Does anyone have one of these for sale please. The point is I want to appeal to the general membership before appealing to the gentleman whose name and ident escapes me to assist if he is willing to so. It goes without saying that any expenses incurred will be met in full.
Required also: Master rom cartridges.
