That was what I figured. Hopefully the lister will put the two back
together, but has not done so for now. he did bring down the price per
my suggestion he had messed up the value by pulling the chip.

I've got two boards with T-11's very nice. The T-11's listed right now
were higher in cost than the KDJ processor I have, and I have a full
page archived with the project to bring it up. Just seemed like an
interesting project for sometime.
Pete McCollum did a project based on the T11. It is a small PCB
with less than 10 ICs. He implemented a Forth environment on it.
I joined that project, but have not done anything with the hardware
till now ☹ That will change when I retire in 7 years (haha) . . .
