Adrian Vickers: > In particular, the sentence "Since Commodores in a cardboard overslept the > fall 14 years unaffected." :) Hehe. It really says "for 14 years it has slept in a cardboard box since the demise of Commodore". Converting German grammar to English grammar is not very easy, even for humans :) With reservations that my German is somewhat rusty: "Wow, they don't make those anymore... New from the development division of Commodore Braunschweig: The complete C900 prototype main board!! The C 900 was Commodore's answer to a question no-one asked: It was thought as a competitor to workstations from Apollo or HP. The Unix-like operating system "Coherent" as well as a Z8000 CPU were in themselves top-modern. Result: The unit never passed the development stage. The board is partly handmade and seems, except for the RAM, to be complete (incl. Z80XX on a daughterboard as well as original C900 boot ROMs). Handwritten notes indicates the piece as functional. For 14 years it has slept in a carboard box since the demise of Commodore. No matter if to awaken (all the connectors *are* there) or even ideal as the ultimate display-piece - a part of history that every fellow collector will envy you for." -- \\// Peter - iDOC= - http://www.softwolves.pp.se/idoc/ I do not read or respond to mail with HTML attachments.
