I have an Apricot VX-FT which I got at an auction about a decade ago.
Since then I've had several half-hearted attempts to upgrade and install
things on it, but it's MCA architecture and 16mb max limits what I can
install on it.

I was wondering if any had one of these and what they are doing with
it/running on it?

Failing that, does anyone want it?
The door still works (although the light doesn't) and boots, it has 8mb
ram in it, and although I've been given some "rare as hen's teeth" 2mb
simms, it still only reports 8mb :(
It has a floppy drive and 2 disks with ADF files on etc.

It has no hard drives in it, although I could be persuaded to part with
the 1gb FH drive I swiped from it originally.
The UPS batteries don't work, but they look standard and could be
I have various MCA cards (network, specialix, ram, IRMA and SCSI) that
could go with it if they are any use.

Swapsies for something else would be cool.
