Welcome! I’m a collector from Sweden. Mainly Commodore. And mainly PETs. I have several projects to choose from for the moment, but my main focus is repairing a couple of disk drives for the PET. I don’t have any spare 8250-LP’s at the moment, but i know of a guy who’s probably going to sell a couple of them later this year. I’ve been looking for the Punter BBS disks for quite some time, so i’m glad you have them in your possession :) Best regards Jacob Den 12 aug 2015 04:07 skrev "vk4akp" <firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com>>: Hi Guy's, I just stumbled upon "cbm-hackers" while Googling some stuff on IEEE-488. :) Very pleased to find you guys! A bit about me. Ex CBM outlet employee of some 10ish years from back in the 80's. Started on Vic-20 > c64 > A1000 > A2000 > A3000 (Now very interested in what I have missed c128 etc!) :) Ran BBS's on all. (Punter then Paradox / Cnet + lots of others). Also a keen interest in communications, Amateur Radio, Alternative energy; Living; Health; etc. These days I maintain a nice collection of retro gear that I constantly try and collect. I find my hobbies cross over greatly and mix nicely. Ham Radio <> Retro Computing <> Solar etc. I love IEEE-488 but am still in search of a 8250LP or SFD-1001 (100i). (100TPI) I have some Punter BBS disks that I'm sure the software is lost to time. I have no idea if they can still read but if I can ever get my hands on a compatible 100TPI drive I'd love to attempt recovery of the software. I also have Catweasel & KryoFlux Disk archiving tools. I think that's about it for now. Love to hear from other keen users on their projects and interests. ~ Ken - vk4akp ~ http://shazam.zapto.org <http://shazam.zapto.org/> (Contact me via my nick on gmail!) .-.-. ----- Ex CBM Outlet employee.
