    Opened up the box, the caps all look good. Nice and flat on top and bottom. I am afraid that is a victim of the high humidity and salt air. All the electronics here have problems. One trick we do, is to hair dry circuit boards then spray with womens hair spray to coat and protect them. I live on the beach in Copacabana, a small price to pay for the life here!! The box had a good life but afraid it has just bit the dust.

    BTW, the external fan cage is pretty rusted, a sign of the salt air. I have had it here for 5 years.

    Take care, if ever in Rio, look me up.

    So close,...
    I still have my old TRS80 that ran basic. I will have to look for it, haven't seen it in a while. We've come a long way since then.

    IBM 1401 was the first I programed. Then worked on the SAGE computers which had vaccum tubes. Then the IBM 360 came out and the world changed. Then the IBM PC (well maybe some of the kit PCs started it) and the world changed again. Oh, the old days! What am I saying, cant live without the technology we have today.

    I can ask simple questions about just anything on the net, and get guys like you, thousands of miles away to help out.

    I will suffer along without my TIVO for a while. I do miss the program information. Wish they would enter the brazilian market, the DVRs here are a POS.

    You do know that I was talking about a mainframe that was so expensive it was shared by 3 Universities, so referring to it as "my" first computer was intended as humor?

    Although it was the first computer on which I ever wrote and ran a program.

    Something like add 2 and 2, typed on punch cards which ran as batch files in the middle of the night, and usually came back failed, with no explanation.
