Re: Memories

Was there ever an Olivetti that was 'standard'?

I never dealt with the M24, but the M380... AAAAARGH!

The PSU would die after 2 years. The insulation on a coil melted and it shorted out, if I remember correctly.

And the memory expansion cards...

Those long, horrible cards with 16 sockets. And the yard-long 'configuration card you used to find out the switch settings.

The fact that the keyboard connector was a D9 connector was just a fun, quirk.

(St506 drives in a 1990s PC, though... not so fun)
