Hi Terry, I love your system-80 page as you write it like a adventure.
I just like to tell that in germany there was a large community using TRS-80, Komtek and Video Genie (the system-80 named Video-Genie) imported by TCS. TCS made some modern computers compatible to the Video Genie but faster and made for CP/M and NEWDOS. They where the Genie-III, Genie-IIs, Genie-IIIs and the Speedmaster. The last 3 were designed by Uwe Boeker who studied mathematics in 1983. As they where made in Germany most documents are in german language. I saved them at [oldcomputers.dyndns.org
So thanks for your side I like to visit if I've time.
