Damn good cover. I need to get some more 27C400's and fire up the EPROM programmer ;-)

Awe, I am sorry, I'm just naturally cynical.

Well... did anybody here recently buy original KS 3.1 chips from Vesalia or Software Hut? They're not Micronix 23CXXXX ROMs, they're erasable 27c400 chips...

The only way to tell they are original chips and not copies is either the sticker or the manufacturing date code of the chip...

Buying a kickstart copyrighted in 1993 stored on an EPROM manufactured in 1991 is kinda suspicious...

These chips came from dead machines that were left outside exposed to rain and snow so all their original stickers dried out. They were safe from the light inside the rusting casings. However, I had to put on electrical tape to block the light once I took them out.

I am still playing lego with the parts from these dead 2000 and I am slowly but surely building another working one I will soon sell on eBay. I just sold one 2 weeks ago.

As I posted a few months ago, one of these machines had a dead cat inside... nice find huh?
