I normally don't pay a huge amount of attention to the model and ROM cataloguing aspect of this list, but I'm in the middle of moving house at the moment, and was reminded that I own a curiosity that may be of interest to list members. It's a 1541 clone made by Blue Chip Electronics, model BCD/5.25, serial number 70506403, made in Korea. Are these familiar to anyone else in the list? All I know of it's provenance is that my parents bought it for us kids when I was a teenager in the 1980s. If there's any interest I could extract the ROMs. A quick google shows up a photo of one from George Page's drive collection at http://www.funet.fi/pub/cbm/pictures/gpage1/ gpage1.html, and some arguments on comp.sys.cbm some years ago as to how reliable they were or were not, and not much else. FWIW, I never had any problems with mine. (it's the model with the latch on the right). Cheers, Christopher. Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
