I had an ACT4 which worked quite well, and it may still be in my pile?
I don't recall what I did
with it as I got into other terminals that I had to support.
I modified the Pick terminal drivers to run it, and it was my system
console for a long time
as well. I recall paying about $400 for it or so, and was glad to get
it in a time of $1200 ADM3's
and multi thousand dollar "real" terminals. Adds terminals when
available were not that much, but
were rare as they were pretty standard on all systems.
Please get Al K to scan them, or send them to me, I have a scanner and
would scan them
for him when I get started. I hope to do a lot of scanning here in january.
