Hi Mark

Sorry to hear you are having to move stuff on. I am near Newark so reasonably
close. Interested to know if you have any early SCSI disks with the early 40
pin connector. I think some may have been used on Apple kit. I am trying to
restore an old Sun Voyager luggable.

31st. It's a LONG list (I went into way too much detail).

The side panel fan has slightly botched (but working) contacts on it. Inside
is clean and in good condition.

(beautiful Trinitron 9b flat-tube) with a Performa 575 mainboard in (a
slot-in replacement). A hardware hack has been done to the analogue board to
drive the screen at 640x480 (which it does very well). Doesnbt have a fitting
back panel cover for the logic board (purely a cosmetic issue). The amp for
the onboard speaker died at some point (might be cap rot) but the headphone
port on the board worked fine.
