Old Processors with BASIC

I have a couple retro sorta systems (well at least the processor part) on a chip with BASIC interpeters that I
bought back in the late 80s and have been sitting in a parts bin since then...

Micromint 80C52
http://www.micromint.com/products/by-family/micromint-chips.html?id=97
Intel 8052 variant with Basic interpeter

Zilog Z8671PS
Z8 variant with Basic interpeter

I'll never use them (as time has proven) but perhaps someone on the list wants to go retro and actually make
them do something. They are NOS but no idea if they are working or not...

Free to a good home....
Better than throwing them out...

Bob

Re: Free solid oak dining table & chairs.

The dining suite is now been picked up by a fellow VHS'er.  Thanks for everyone's interest and sorry to those who were interested but missed out. 

I have another couple of items that may be of interest to either the VHS or to other hackers:  A really comfy upholstered armchair that has been sat in maybe a dozen times since it was new and a large steel and formica desk that I have used over the years as a computer desk, sewing/craft table and workbench.  I'll post photos and dimensions tomorrow.

Free solid oak dining table & chairs.

This is probably not the best forum to advertise this however, if I have to give it away free I'd like to see it go to either someone I know or, at the very least, another VHS'er.


I've not been able to sell my dining suite on Craigslist, even for the low price of $300. Because I need it out of the house by Sunday evening to make way for new furniture, I'm giving it away free to anyone who can pick it up and remove it from my premises by Sunday evening. After that the chairs become firewood and I cannibalize the table for my woodworking projects, which is sad because my late wife paid about $1000 for it new 5 years ago.

Here are the details:

Solid oak, bar-height dining table with 6 chairs and table leaf. Excellent condition with no dings, scratches or any other damage. Table is 36" high and 54 x 40" without the leaf or 54 x 54" with leaf. Includes seat cushions.

It goes to the first to show up with a truck and a couple of bodies to move it.  I'll be posting it on Craiglist Free Stuff tomorrow evening so it will likely be gone by Friday afternoon.  Contact me off-list if you are interested.

Steve

Outdoor lounge chairs project

Hi All,

Not sure if anyone is interested in making these two chairs
operational again, I still have the fabric pieces that can be used as
a template for the new fabric that stretches over the metal frames.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/39800280 <at> N06/14726754545/

I would like to shift these chair frames onto a fixer or maker. Had
them a while reluctant to scrap them though. Good for a project.

-B

Mozillians instance

I dropped a few ProLiant servers off at the space as donation a while back, now I've checked with Hoff and I'll be snagging one of the spares to set up the Mozillians server we've discussed.  Just to be sure I don't take someone's project,  I'll tag the one I intend to use and leave it tagged for at least a week before doing anything to it.   Hoff says it is not currently used as well, but if you are concerned it may be yours, double check it.  I don't want to wipe anyone's toy on accident.
