Re: Found my blue paint can...

Here are some pics. The rainbow cable you see just extends the bus out the back. http://s24.postimg.org/lio0eiufl/IMG_20140529_180529.jpg http://s27.postimg.org/ckjy27m4v/IMG_20140529_180605.jpg Did you use Vince's custom paint recipe or the Rustoleum Professional Safety Blue #7524? This is Safety ...

Re: cassette interface

Interesting. I took a brief look at the document last night (it was late). Thanks for posting it. What I can tell from the hookup diagram, this might be a device that captures the traffic on the serial port and then is able to 'play it back'. This is not at all unlike the transferring of paper tape ...

Re: Found my blue paint can...

Thanks for the tip. I used this paint last weekend and it came out great.

Not only is it a really great color for this, but it's also really nice paint.

I highly recomend the paint job to anyone that owns a micro. It looks so awesome with the new front panel.

Re: Status of Altair 8800 4th batch?

Just got mine today, but won't have time to start on it until tomorrow.

The front panel looks really cool.

Can't wait to see it in action.

Just a few feet of solder between then and now!

Re: Howto run KB9 Basic V 3.0 on Micro-KIM

Great! I'm glad you got it working. That's some good info. The decimal mode clear seemed to be the thing that made it start to work for me, but I did not have the vectors set.That might be why it jumped to BASIC after my CLD. My other thought was to just put a jump to basic (4C 5E 40) at $0201 after...

Re: Howto run KB9 Basic V 3.0 on Micro-KIM

So this just gets better and better... This morning I went to load basic as normal (1200 baud) from my laptop, and all I got after hitting 'G' was a bunch of garbled characters. I tried to load it a few more times with the same result. Then, without reloading the program, I decided to mess with my b...

Re: Howto run KB9 Basic V 3.0 on Micro-KIM

Wow this is verry interesting. Today I tried again just to make sure I wasn't leading you astray... given i fudged the menory locations in my original post. I was able to load 8k basic again today with 1200 8N1 (no hardware control) and the extreem delays i mentioned. After loading it at 1200 baud, ...

Re: Howto run KB9 Basic V 3.0 on Micro-KIM

The log file that is included in this thread is the one I used... I just cut the program bytes out and created a text file to upload. In the log, you can see that the user has started to load at 0200 which is what I was trying to convey, (though I don't think this really matters as it does look like...

Re: Howto run KB9 Basic V 3.0 on Micro-KIM

Hmmm... That's no fun... I was able to load the KB9 basic through minicom on linux at 1200 8N1 with a char delay of 20 and line delay of 200. That may be a bit extreem, but it worked. Whenever I am able to see the memory prompt, the rest works. I assume you are loading it at 0200 and starting it at ...

Re: My new Micro-KIM kit

I just joined the ranks of micro-KIM owners as well. That was a lot of solder!! ...and a ton of fun. Everything went together smooth and fired up right away. I'm running the clock demo right now and it's looking good. I haven't even scratched the surface and I'm loving this thing. What a great kit! ...

Re: Status of Altair 8800 4th batch?

I am strongly considering it.

However, I won't be able to throw down any money until next week.
