    I'm pleased to report that the Sage and Stride collector website is now up and running again:

    Great to read! Why is that? Looking forward to any updates there.

    That's great, thanks for all.

    I have recently acquired a new set of disks for the SAGE which is different from the disk sets available from the website. If wanted, I could contribute the disk images.

    I have designed several 680x0 computers recently and ported cpm68k to them. All they have are 680x0, DRAM, and serial ports. I wonder what additional hardware are required to run SAGE/Stride software?

    a upd765 based floppy interface and 2 intel 8253 times would be a minimum. Schematics for the Sage II / IV machines are available.
    Sage IV has an in-house developed MFM-harddisk interface.

    My newly designed 680x0 hardware also have compact flash interface. The serial port device is 68681 which does have timers on chip, so If SAGE/Stride interface to hardware through CPM BIOS, then perhaps I can work around the specific floppy controller and timers. The big question is how video and keyboard were implemented. This is the area I may need specific hardware to be compatible.

    Not implemented at all : these systems were intended to be used with (multiple !) ASCII terminals. And you will be rewriting a lot of stuff if you have different implementation for the serial channels, the FDC, the timers and so on...

    There was a graphics board available "Pluto Board", but I have not found any schematics nor software for it until now.
