My Retrochallenge entry is complete. One month of working on the Ohio Scientific Challenger 4P and blogging as I went (http://www.classic-computers.org.nz/blog/2014-06-30-fixing-C4P-ram-expansion-board.htm), with some good outcomes. It's a great way to focus on things that would normally be in the 'round tuit" corner.

Thanks for all those supportive comments guys.

Yes, the blog is definitely a blow-by-blow narrative as in keeping with RetroChallege. It's a bit of a slog reading it in one sitting :)

I found the article a great read...

Wish I lived down the road from you so you could help with the two TRS-80 Model I's and the Amiga 500 I'm trying to revive.

It has been an enjoyable read indeed, thanks Tezza!

I'm still learning about the Challenger and trying to find a complete system; but yours it has been the most practical source of info about the machine I have found.

Thanks. My few blog entries pale when it comes to Dave's OSI repository (http://www.osiweb.org/) though, if you are looking for OSI links and info.
