John,
Might not be 1982. Might be an 82-pin bus.  Anything else on the page?

GENERAL RETRO CHIT CHAT / Re: Tractor feed paper

Andy, sorry I have been busy, but I have some boxes of the wide paper which I am never going to use if you need a box...

A C128 is probably secure but useless. Most things connect via some sort of ADSL router and these are all flashable...

I think that basically ALL platforms contain some type of vulnerability if you can get physical access. I see that even the Microsoft secure boot locked down systems have been found to contain easily patchable components.

I guess that as its safe to assume that all software contains bugs, even the simplest..

so it needs to be patched, so it will have security holes....
... and even the original UNIX had a back door... for example...

... I guess the other old adage applies, the only secure system is one no one uses.....

Got a few iPAQ H36xx and accessories such as sleeves, cradles, keyboards, which I no longer need. Any Interest? They probably need new batteries

I would bet that not even the C128 is bullet -proof. I seem to think on most Z80 platforms the address of the ROM routines gets copied to RAM at startup to allow patching. Same as with Atari ST

I actually saw three LISAs, there was a stand with some of Apples "short life" products on, including a LISA one with "Twiggy" drives and a LISA 2 with normal drives. There is also a LISA in the museum's display, which I think also has a twiggy drive.

BUT I had no desire to sneak them away. Some of the other exhibits perhaps, but not the Lisa...

FOR SALE / WANTED / Re: (E)EPROM programming service

Folks,

 Not sure where Matthew is, but if any one in the North West wants one doing quickly I have a three programmers and two erasers. As I am also looking to add a milling head to my 3-d printer for making PCBs, and of course I can 3-d print things, perhaps we need a directory of services?

Dave.
