I have just, this afternoon, finally received the rest of the Compukit
UK101 I was talking about last August, which aroused some interest - I
received half a dozen direct emails and a few IMs about it, too.
I now have the UK101, in a metal case resembling a rather enlarged
Dragon32. I also have the original instruction manual, complete with
receipt stapled in the back - 26/9/79, I believe. £252 and change,
including VAT, for an 8KB 8-bit machine. :¬) I also have a bare
(uncased) CRT monitor for it, in its original shipping box. I believe
I may also have a demo software cassette tape - I've not yet tried to
remove the monitor from its box.
My plan is to put these on eBay and donate any proceeds to the
Bletchley Park museum. Does this seem reasonable?
They will cost a fair amount to post, although I am prepared to do
that and I am a reasonably competent packer, not of the "chuck it in a
box, add some polystyrene peanuts and hope" variety. Personal
collection would be preferable, from South London, but for several
potential purchasers I imagine this would not be viable.
