Default Re: Non-working Commodore PET 3016

It's a bit, er, maunual. Like you, I don't want to lose it either. I'll have to find away to tidy the case up but leave that bit.

I'm wondering now if the machine was disposed of by the college in an already electronically ruinous state - the educational environment is a notoriously tough one for anything to have to survive. If so, Colin may be the first person to see it working since it last worked there. It's just a shame that the interim owner didn't keep it in a drier place.
