If this is really a Televideo PT100, then it should respond to the
control sequences of a DEC VT100. Perhaps the manual does not match
the hardware?

Hi,
i'm searching for the data general 095-000300 cartridge/diskette
formatter. I have a 6030-2 drive collecting dust. I thought about
writing my own, but i have no exact information about the sector format.

  Free to good home: Specialix RIO 16 port RTA         


Author: John Carlyle-Clarke

Hi. I saved this from a skip a few years back. It has 16 DB25 female
on the back, 10 of which have RJ45 to DB25 converters. It has 4 ports
marked A - D, but only A has an actual socket (the rest are blanks)
which looks like a PS2 connector. I think there must be a PCI or ISA
card to go into a server as well, but I don't have this part.

It was used at a previous workplace to link a bunch of green screen VT's
to an accounting/stock app running on AIX. Several of them were
remotely located on the end of a Kilostream, using a couple of MUX/DEMUX
boxes which I also failed to grab. I also failed to grab any of the
VT's. I must be slipping!

Anyway, just in case anyone can find a use for this, you're welcome to
it. It probably cost a fortune - shame to chuck it out.

Part no is 00-151000

  TeleVideo Personal Terminal PT200

Folks,

I have recently bought small TelevIdeo terminal labeled "Televideo
Personal Terminal" and it was accompanied by a manual labeled "Televideo
PT100". Unfortunately when I tried the escape codes in the manual I found
they didn't work! The manual says its VT100 compatible but it isn't. Any way
I opened the beast to find the PROM inside is labeled PT200!. It appears to
work more like a tvi912, and in fact using the 912 TERMCAP entry produces a
"usable" display. However I can't get video hilight to work....

I wondered if any one has any documentation on these...

  Thread to determine John Varela's bug

Post #1.0

I'm going to start a new thread. The goal is to create a single long
thread which has a single cascade of replies to this post.

I will number this Post #1. The person who replies to this post should
bump the version number to 2.0.

The person who replies to 2.0 should bump the version to 3.0. the
person who replies to 3.0 should bump the version number to 4.0.

et cetera et cetera et cetera.

This is to test if a single long cascade will break his system.

x-posted from financial cryptography blog w/regards some history of
e-commerce on the internet

https://financialcryptography.com/mt/archives/001100.html

we had been brought in to consult with this small client/server startup
that wanted to do payment transactions on their server ... and they had
this technology they had invented called SSL which they wanted to
use. in previous life, we had worked with the two people responsible for
the "commerce" server (on scaleup for high integrity, high availability,
high thruput DBMS).

we had sign-off on various aspects of the server to payment gateway
operation ... so could mandate various things about industrial strength
networking (before things like internet SLA contracts, so had to
invent/design compensating processes). lots of past posts

  Re: AN/FSQ-7A, AN/FSQ-32 and IBM 4020

I had a quick look at the Q-7A document which I think you're referring
to (on bitsavers) and both it
and the 4020 description seem very much like proposals to see if there
was any interest in paying the
bill at the Pentagon. I doubt either ever got much beyond this
stage. I recall that the last SAGE
machine, decommissioned around 1982, was a vacuum tube machine, and if
the Q7-A had been built and deployed,
it would certainly have lived on later than that.

Just as a point of possible interest, the 4020 name was also used by
an early microfilm and hard copy
recorder built by Stromberg-Carlson, called the S-C 4020. Just a
coincidence.

RCN shut down all its newsservers 3 days ago. Thanks to Charlie, I
already had newsguy written down to use when I'd gone to Michigan.

I had to start using them now. What PITA.

Can you hear me now?

already posted 5 news items there with another

at the University of Buffalo in New York State.
It has been moved to Vcsweb.com, due to
changes in the university policies. ...
