I picked up an Apple IIe recently that was loaded with cards. Most were the standard stuff, but one in particular is baffling to me - a CompuLynx SchoolMate //e. It consists of a long card plus an external box that has 4 buttons on the front (SM "A/b", SM "A", SM "B", and Local) plus two lights - Disk and Printer. The rear has a ribbon cable with a 26-pin connector and a DB-9 pin connector on the back plate. I haven't been able to find any information on this whatsoever and am wondering if anyone here has any idea as to what this is. The internal card has two connectors - one 26-pin (which I am assuming is for the cable coming out of the back of the external box) and a separate 20-pin connector. I'll try to get some pictures taken & posted here (I'm recovering from surgery last week, so I'm not moving very quickly right now).

Here's some photos. (Please excuse the "Photo courtesy of..." line - I'm using these for a photo library I'm creating.)
