You know how it is ... you spend the first half of your life pretending to be older than you really are, then the second half pretending to be younger.

I look back with fondness on the S-100 age but the following excerpt from the Vector Graphic Flashwriter II ebay auction (http://cgi.ebay.com/Vector-Graphic-Inc-Flashwriter-II-Board-S-100-CP-M-Z-80_W0QQitemZ260271808864QQihZ016QQcategoryZ4193QQs sPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem)
reminded me that I might be entering the second half ...


All of these boards were my grandfathers and he used them for replacement parts for his working Vector computer.
