Why wouldn’t we? They’re actually really rare, and quite nice.

Some of us have been looking for a MacIvory — or a microExplorer — for a very long time. It requires quite a bit of luck to acquire one.

One thing I’m keenly interested in finding is a way to reload the TI Explorer and microExplorer software. I’ve used the Meroko emulator, but only with the image of a workstation at WSU running the Explorer 4.1 system. I’d like to load a fresh environment on it from the final Explorer system release, if I could acquire such a thing.
