I looked at the super buffer board and that is way cool. You mention above
that you had a 10 Meg drive attached also. What O/S was used to access that
drive? Was HDOS able to see and use the whole thing?

I am currently working on an IDE interface for the H-8. Development has been
slow for a while due to other things going on. Trying to use original design
techniques and the same logic used on the original boards to keep it close
to what might have come out of Benton Harbor (not sure if that has a lot of
value but it sounds good <wink>). Thought of using a PAL to decrease the
number of IC's on board but I know most folks don't have the means to
program one of those, so am sticking to discreet IC's and will see what the
chip count is when I am done.
