I'm casually interested. I have a sister in down in Vancouver, WA. I
don't suppose you head down there at all?
Now if you had an HP-7970 I'd be all over that. :)
I'm not sure if an HP-1000 series can handle an HPIB interface drive
instead of whatever the interface is on a 7970.
Anyone care to comment on that?
Also there have been a few HPIB floppy drives on eBay. I'm wondering how
much work it would be to get them attached to an HP-1000 series machine.
