Subject: Tek 40xx computer users

I bought the Tek 4051 on ebay today; Jason brought it to my house and it
works perfectly, with about a half hour of programming instruction my 12 old
daughter was plotting a cat face.


I would like to get in touch with other users of this first personal
computer, and find additional resources.

Do you know where I can find an archive of BASIC programs for this?

Has anybody built plug in cards in the back, mine came with a realtime clock
and a "file manager", I do not know what that one does.

I have some Tek scopes with IEE-488, and I will see if I can get the IEEE
interface working.

There was a DC300 tape in the machine:







The belt is broken in the tape, I have ordered some new DC300's and will
transplant the tape.

Any resources will be welcome!
