I think there is a PEEK-protection or something like that. Initialise with SYS (beginaddress), or for supervisor mode, beginaddress + 3. I have a list of commands somewhere. You can get and put screen images and loaded programs from/to other computers in the net. Also, I think, designate one machine as a disk-access-server (load & save only I think). Warning: once, after a vacation, I came back in the computer room of the school. I turned on one PET, nothing. It turned out it was not plugged in, so I plugged it in (crawling under the table). But I forgot to turn it off first. Above my head I heard a very loud buzz. I unplugged. It stopped. I plugged it back. Buzz again, and a very very nasty smell. I had literally melted some chips on the HYDRA board. They had holes in them. The PET's main board was also broken. Worse: two other PETs which were connected via the network only were also fried. Damage, as I was told: about NLG 10.000 (of about 1984 or so) (EUR 4545). The first PET, the one I turned on, was also a custom made 8032 with N keyboard (instead of the usual B keyboard). It never was the same again after the board swap :-( > / / |_/ Groetjes, Ruud -Olaf. -- ___ Olaf 'Rhialto' Seibert - rhialto@ --Soep van de dag, wat zal dat zijn \X/ xs4all.nl --wat kan dat wezen, beter maar het ergste vrezen -Boy Bensdorp Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
