Right. I have, somewhere, a loose-leaf binder that has what paper I have on
that board, including my paper schematics -- I'm *real* happy to have found
that file so I have a backup copy of that info in electronic form, too. But
I don't recall whether the source code was included in that or not.
"Available with the board" may not mean that I got it -- there was BIOS source
available with it too, and I never got that. It was supposed to come on the
same (eight inch!) floppy I'd get my purchased copy of CP/M on, only I
didn't have the funds to buy all that at once, and so attempted to spread
out my purchases a bit. And right in there someplace was when Cal-Tex ceased
its operations... :-(
