Yes, that is actually an idea I've been about to ask regarding your 1541IDE project now when IEEE drives came into the question; how much the DOS logic differs between a 8050 and a 1541. Anyway, I'm sure there are lots of things one can do if you only had the time and motivation. >> * About 20-25 mixed IEEE dual floppy drives >> * About 5 mixed PETs >> * Lots of other random stuff, loose boards etc > > I'm really looking forward to meet you this summer :) I edited the list a bit to better reflect what kind of stuff there is left to find. It might be an underestimate, but better to expect little and score a lot than the opposite. By the way, this guy once built a portable PET. Well, more like "movable" because it consists of a 8032, a 8050 drive, possibly even a printer all built inside a huge box of Masonite, and wheels added to the box. Really huge piece, meant to be used in the field during artillery practises. I don't know what kind of data they would calculate or record during shooting practise, perhaps people would take breaks and play some games on the PET.
