Todd, thanks so much for sharing, and I'm thrilled to know that a member of
this community is where it's going.
May I ask, what are your plans for archival of the included disks and
manuals, if any?
I'd also be quite curious to see if there are any internal circuit
differences between that machine and a "regular AT&T 3b1. If you ever open
it up, I'd love to see/hear about that.
I've put a fair amount of effort into preserving Convergent-branded OS and
programs, particularly from this era, solely out of personal interest.
Mostly for the MightyFrame, but my journey had to start with the AT&T UNIX
PC first, as that had the larger "still available" user group for learning
& support before I could revers-engineer how to get a MightyFrame to boot.
Anyway, I would really love to see those software/manual sets be preserved
in a bitsavers.org / archive.org fashion, and if there is anything that I
might be able to do to assist in that effort, I'd love to volunteer.
My site for preserving this area of Convergent software and equipment is at
Please let me know how I might help, in any way.
Thanks so much!
