Last Post: [ Exatron Stringy Floppy ] 05/23/2005
Here is a preview of a more in-depth report on the Exatron Stringy Floppy Pictures The stingy floppy was introduced in April 1979 at the Computer Faire in San Francisco USA. The order form for the purchase of a stringy floppy includes a field to select the drive software for either the TRS 80, SWTP or S-100. I have a typed copy of the s-100 assembler, but it's for the Cromeco. The "nose" protrudes 1/2 inch from the drive. The dimensions of the hole from which the nose protrudes is 3" wide x 1" tall The Stringy Floppy Wafers are 2 11/16" x 1 9/16" (must be metric). Most of the documentation refers to the TRS 80 with Level II BASIC, except for the Cromeco assembler. Bill D... [ read more ]

5-18-2005 I have an IBM 4956 Series I System as described below (circa 1976-83). I have limited experience with this era IBM and will gladly except assistance in the mean time I will slowly work to restore its function. I was told that it was operational when taken off line 20 years ago and appears to have been stored adequately. Assembled the system is housed in two 6-foot rack cabinets with a total weight of 600-800lbs If you want it you will have to come to the Landenberg, PA USA which is on the extreme south-eastern tip of the state, about 10 miles from I-95 where Maryland meets Delaware. Bring a truck. I can provide pictures or additional details upon request. Inventory: qty) description 2) 6' IBM 4997 Rack Units with shelves to house the processor and peripherals. 1) IBM 4956 Processor (see http://www.btxmuseum.de/Hardware/geraet.asp?id=120 for German equivalen...
