My first computer came with a Hazeltine 1000, this was older than the
1200. It had 80 characters wide, but I think it only was 12 lines tall,
I cant remember that part for sure. What I remeber for sure was that it
was upper case only. There was a place of the PCB for a second
character generator rom for lower case which was not loaded. There was
also a switch on the front which enabled lower case for the keyboard.
That was very confusing because sometimes I was typing in lower case,
then when I did a search or search / replace in ed it couldn't find what
I was searching for because it was upper case. I didn't figure that out
until later when I got an intertube terminal to replace the Hazeltine 1000.
