    Default VT180/Robin Lives!

    With help from a number of forum members here, my VT180 is up and running!

    Made a trade with one member for the disk drives, another pointed me to the software images, and a third local member imaged the disks for me.

    A much more involved and interesting project than what was originally what looked like a good deal on a VT100 terminal... Thanks to everyone for their help!

    Fantastic! And you have real RX180 drives! Looks great. The software images are on bitsavers, and I made mine with ImageDisk.

    I am curious who else here also has a working Robin.

    That's great news.
    I've got one. I have just managed to get a cable for the drives so it's next on the list to play with.

    Very cool! I recently picked up the boards from a Robin, along with a couple of VT-100 terminals (actually VT-125s, judging by the added graphics boards) at a local hamfest. I'm hoping it won't be too hard to find the drives and disks needed to bring it back to life as a full(?) VT-180. I'll be starting my own thread once I take some pictures.
