Thread: VT640 wikipedia page

    Lightbulb VT640 wikipedia page


    I was reading about the Synclavier II system and the Wikipedia page mentioned that the Signal File Manager used a VT640 graphics terminal, which I'd never heard of. Frustratingly, the link to VT640 went to "No such Wikipedia article".

    It was very hard to find any information about it, but once I did I considered making a stub entry on Wikipedia. However, I know next to nothing and there's surely somebody with actual knowledge, probably somebody here, who would be much more qualified to create a proper encyclopedic entry.

    Reminds me of the terminal I used to use with a Gamma Spectrometer in the late 80's

    Terminal has long gone, but the machine is still in its room. Defunct but too big to move
