    None at present - I will be getting an IDE S-100 board from Bill Sudbrink but I'm not sure what drivers he may have with it; he does have several Horizons.

    I am not sure about a shim - I do know...

    Hmmm. Maybe 'close enough' will have to do. I'm more frugal than I am a perfectionist. ;-)

    You are welcome, Hugo. I am now down to just a Sol-itary Sol (and soon a N* Horizon) - my first two original micro's.

    I'd be interested in which paint was used as well.

    Hi Jon

    I will be getting a working NorthStar Horizon 4MHz Z80 system in the not too distant future, so I am very interested in both the uRTC and the uIDE. Put me on the list - thanks!

    Hi Hugo

    That was all I could find. I had it in my old Sol System manual but I don't recall if I ever had one - I gave my extra PMs to Bill Sudbrink, so if I had one, he has it now.

  9. ProcTech Sol-20 case color - matching paint?

    Has anyone tried re-painting the metal case on a Sol-20? Do you have a recommendation for a matching color from a particular company? Any tips on repainting? I actually want to paint an old Cipher...

    That would be really neat - I'd love one myself. I have a PDF of a a Sol PM modified by MicroComplex which replaces the cassette routines with disk boot routines and makes some other little changes....

    Two Sol-20's for sale

    I won't be able to attend VCF East this year because I will be out of town at my granddaughter's birthday; I had planned to bring them. They haven't been tested and will at least require new...
  13. Not quite...

    That's the original for 8080 / z80 systems. I'm looking for the version re-written for the IBM PC under DOS.

    But thanks for trying.
  14. WTD: Electric Pencil II word processor for IBM PC DOS

    Even the two authors don't have a copy (it's a re-write of the original Michael Shrayer program). Anybody have a copy? Any format will do).

    Thanks!
  15. Anyone have Electric Pencil II for the PC v. 2.0z ?

    This WP program was a 1982 re-write (for MS-DOS) of the original Electric Pencil by Michael Shrayer. Even the two authors don't have copies any longer! I have looked around for the past year but...

    And for those that don't know Ray, he really has been part of and seen a lot of the 'glory years' of microcomputing - '75-'80. ...

    Memory Tests

    Erik -

    I remember any number (okay, a small number of...) RAM test programs. I think there was one included in NorthStar DOS, but there were several that ran under CP/M - one of the CP/M archive...
  19. Any interest in reproduction Altair 8800 nameplate?

    I'm restoring an Altair 8800 which I received without the thin aluminum MITS ALTAIR 8800 nameplate on the bottom of the front panel. The best reproduction I can have made around here (Hartford, CT)...

    Saver of Lost Sols

    My first personal computer was a Sol-20, back in 1977, so it has remained my favorite. I now have several plus a Helios disk drive (still no time, room or courage to plug it in!) plus a fair amount...

    Many thanks!

    Erik -

    Thanks so much for doing these, especially at this busy time for you. I will get moving on finding a local company who can make repro's of the nameplate and let you know what I find out. ...
