I am currently part way though a pretty big clear out.

I have found an original Dev Board for the Riot, Hugo gave it to me when he left for the states. I also have what looks like a Dev Riot itself. Neither work at the moment.

I'm certainly not going to throw them out, but if someone would like them please let me know. I have a small collection of other bits too, like Karma base station. I can't find the Karma or the charger at the moment.

If there are a few people interested, I'll give it to the person willing to make the biggest donation to a worthy cause.

Cheers

Cris

Either nobody wants this stuff, or no body watches this forum anymore ???

I guess I'd try eBay. Someone might fancy those for posterity?

The thing with the Riot, of course, is that it wasn't one of "ours" -- it was a Rio Tigard project. So the Tigard crew are more likely to feel nostalgic about it, but I don't know where they hang out online if anywhere (not on Riovolution AFAICT). And in fact it was Rio Tigard's last project, it was what sank them, so even they might not feel all that nostalgic about it...

I think it still have some cool value to it. I've kept it nice and safe for a few years now. Quite surprised no one wants it frown

I would eBay it, but it doesn't feel right to profit from this stuff.

Cheers

You could try this guy: wharnack ( at ) computerhistory.org

I've been there recently donating some stuff, you could mention that I thought they might be interested in this (likely as one of the products that the iPod killed frown )...

I mean, they won't pay for it but they might pay shipping...

Thanks,
Hugo

I have contacted William and it looks like they want it in their collection, so I'll box it up and ship it out so they can take a look smile

Thanks for the contact.

Cheers

Well they went in the post to The Computer History Museum this afternoon. I hope they find it interesting.

Do you know if they have any empeg items, or are short of an empeg ??? I have Godfrey's empeg here, and could donate that if they wanted one to complete a collection ???

Cheers

Oh hmmm, I didn't think of that. Maybe that'd be a good home for serial number 00001... I should ask!
