I got this message from Ray Carlsen, I think it is very interesting to everybody who followed this discussion. I will upload the picture to funet as soon as I can connect to it again. Currently we have local network problems. Oh, just saw that there is a CC to the list, probably it didn't make it there due to the attachment?

It must have been the loading of my other scope probe that pulled it so low on the output of the 8701. By the way, these readings are the same in both 80 and 40 columns (as you said they would be). With regards a scan of the motherboard, I've got it! :) I'll send it along as an attachment to this email. This system encodes binaries in something called MIME. Hope you can deal with that. The original scan is an 11 Meg .tif file if you need it. I don't have any software to read a file that big, but I saw it on the computer of the guy who made the digital copy... WOW! I'm amazed at the quality of the .jpg. Guess it compressed so well because it's black and white. I thought resolution would be more important than color. Enjoy!
