Just spotted this Brad clearing up email after a 4 week break. I can't answer your question but it reminded me of something that
other list users may be able to help with or it might just be of interest.
Quite some time ago a friend of mine bought a travel agent in a shopping mall, did a refit of the shop and then later went bust.
Fortunately before the refit and going bust he gave me his old shop display which was run on a modified Commodore.
I haven't opened it up or powered it up but if anyone knows what this is I'd be grateful. I've posted some photos:

Subject: Mall directory computers
Been wondering about this for a while. Just one of those odd childhood
When I was a kid growing up in Oakville, Ontario, I remember Oakville Mall getting one of those very early mall directory computers.
This would have been like, 1982-84, somewhere thereabouts. From what I remember, they had kind of CGA-sh graphics and a chiclet
'keyboard' you used to browse the directory. I'm wondering, were they just PCs, most likely? Or some kind of custom job?
