    Nice board set -- I like IMS's boards, nice clean designs. I used one of the 451 Z80 boards like you have for geneb's S-100 machine build.

    This box is just an Integrand chassis. I have one that had an Ithaca Intersystems board set in it, which is being slowly parted out. The particular badging on this one system may be rare, but OEM...

    I always found even parallel nybble mode with a LapLink cable to be *way* faster than null modem.

    Ugh, too bad the mice took up residence in there! Hopefully it cleans up alright for you.

    Leading Edge's Model D seems to have been pretty popular/common. The keyboard is very nice, and their word processing package is supposed to be a lot like Wang's word processor.

    Can't go wrong with a TEI chassis! I hear they'll take an IMSAI front panel, even the little TEI boxes.

    Well, if you're just looking for a Pentium because eBay 486s are too expensive, perhaps I can fix that problem for you :p

    Sometimes you have to futz with the SDP setting. I haven't dug into why it's an issue with XTIDECFG. I've used the AT28C64B in several other projects, along with other EEPROMs that use SDP, and never...

    Yeah, Jack was saying DEC just connected them up as a regular bridge rectifier. Not surprised that they were used on other DEC systems, they seemed to like to reuse power supply designs/components.
