[Coladam] Reversing AdamNET

Hi Rich:

I actually got in touch with Walter Banks a few months back and he indicated his 
interest to me in publishing the sources then, so I imagine it should be 
possible to get them still if he's able to get the all clear. 

ISTR there were some folks over on the classiccmp mailing list that had a couple 
working HP64000 systems. If anything, someone might have an HP-IB tape drive 
that's compatible... they seem to have some very arcane hardware on that list.

     I was copying the filenames from a directory listing and pasting
it into the message text editor, and the cursor grabbed a bit of the
creation date.  I fixed it in a followup post :-)

     BTW, Walter Banks (author of ADAMnet, see comments in the Master 6801
listing) contacted me a year ago to ask if I wanted the original HP64000
development tapes.  He was cleaning up stuff while relocating his company
and found them.  I said sure, though good luck finding a working HP64000
to read them on.  He said he would send them if he could get an okay from
Coleco's heirs/assigns that they wouldn't object due to IP issues.  I never
heard back... maybe I should give him a ping.  Presumably the tapes would
yield the stuff that the printouts Chris Braymen had were made from, plus
any other ADAMnet devices.
