Subject: Ever hear of Molecular Computer?
I've stumbled into posession of an interesting 16 user CP/M machine
called a SuperMicro 32X from Molecular Computer, Inc. Each user gets
their own Z-80 processor and they all sit on an 8 bit CSMA/CD bus with
one processor that takes care of a shared hard disk, floppy, and tape drive.
Unfortunately, the company went bankrupt several years ago and there was
no technical documentation supplied with the system. I hesitate to put
any amount of work into it fearing that it will break and be unfixable.
Anyone know who might have docs to this thing? (Designers? Field service?)
It's too bad this thing is such a black box; it's a well designed
system. But now it might as well be scrapped for parts.
