Jerome Fine replies:

The mention of early colour displays reminded me.

I realize that this is a VERY long shot, but I wonder
if anyone knows anything about a (VT100 looking - on
the outside) colour terminal made by ID Systems Corporation
in Hilliard, Ohio called an ID-100V.  The shell is
obviously from a VT100, as is the keyboard, but inside
it is about twice as heavy.

I acquired it at least 10 years ago and turned it on to
see if it worked at all.  The SET UP key showed an "A/B"
dialogue with some of the characters displayed in colour
which confirmed it was a colour terminal.  BUT I never
had the time to check any further.

Does anyone know if any documentation is available?

Sincerely yours,

Jerome Fine
