Gadzooks man! I had no idea that you were currently at such an extreme
latitude. How in the dickens did you manage to pack so much gear to take
I've pretty much finished the schematic for the Cypher IV sbc. Also
pretty sure I can make a .gif copy to send along. I would appreciate any
comments you might have, as I have had to guess about some of the component
values. I'm still soldering the thing together, so it will be a few days.
Also, I did find that Unicorn Electronics has the MM58274 clock chips.....,
for $29.00 each! I'll probably (resentfully) buy one, just to fill out the
board, as I've not found anyone else that will sell single items.
I would complain about the early frost, but it I fear it would fall on
deaf ears...., stay warm.
