I'll be picking up that OSI stuff 11.30 tomorrow in the Hutt Valley. I'll probably stop and have lunch at a local cafe there before I head back to Palmy. If any Wellingtonians want to get together to catch up, suggest an eating place and let me know (email me at

Picked up the OSI gear. All stacked up in the garage until I get time to process it. The Challenger 4P with drive will be a good restoration project for rainy day but there is some interesting literature there too. Also some IP Superboards. Peter (plaing) phoned in from the USA when I was there and we had an interesting chat about the gear and early computing in general.

Caught up with Jono (Spidersweb) and partner and had a very pleasant lunch with them.

Yeah was good meeting up again, and Caitlin quite enjoyed it as well - she was impressed with herself that she could understand what we were talking about.

I need to make a thread or two for some of the bits I got and pass more thank yous to Peter.
I know where my camera is, but no idea where the charger is, might end up doing video + text (I know where that camera is).
The condition was amazing, so far EVERYTHING I've tried has worked perfectly. I've built a complete Turbo XT and installed Windows/286 on another machine (backed up the disks too).
