Hi!

As David Beem would say, "Yoink!"

Shipping seems a bit steep, but I'm very interested in documenting the
fax board, if it turns out to be something special. (And I do need a
Bermuda equipped 77 as the one from Canada got a bit "jarred" in
shipment.)

Hello all (or anyone who's paying attention)...

Well, that got here *quickly*. It's not nearly as dirty as the pictures
in the auction suggested. The floppy drive acted rather sluggish at
first (perhaps it was never used?) but loosened up as I worked with it.

Peter has the ADF (7055) for the Kofax card, but his page refers to it
as a KF9100/9200 Document Processor. A quick check of the ADF I have
against Peter's collection doesn't show any obvious differences...mine
says KF-7300 and that's it so far.

The computer boots into OS/2 2.1 and displays an OS/2 desktop by way of
an Image Adapter/A. (This is the first Image Adapter I've ever seen
without any extra VRAM installed.) There's a scanning program
installed, along with drivers for the 16/4 TR card in the machine and a
setup that would seem to put all scanned data on some kind of server.

Look for an outline soon. Thanks for the link to the auction, Bob.

Good for you. It's always great when something goes to someone who can use 
and appreciate it.  Glad to hear it was obviously packed in such a manner 
that it didn't get destroyed. I have all but given up with all the 
destruction that I have seen lately, and is apparently going to continue.

Hi!

> Glad to hear it was obviously packed in such a manner
> that it didn't get destroyed.

I was *astounded* by the quality of the packaging job. In what has to
be a rare move, the box was either brand new or very close AND of the
right size. I kept it and most of the packaging, because I can put it
to use and have no problem storing it. The machine itself was well
padded in several layers of bubble wrap on all dimensions. Further
padding was in place within the box, including several soft foam
panels--top, bottom and sides.

The machine itself has signs of being used in a heavy document handling
environment. In fact, it is almost like the dirt on the case is
newsprint.

I've been very fortunate on shipping front lately. I've purchased a fax
machine on eBay, and while the box was well used, the machine itself
was partially taken apart and each piece wrapped in coated bubble wrap.
On another front, I found a seller of Seagate Barracuda hard drives
(2GB seems like a nice round number for my PS/2s...) who knew how to
pack things. I went back to that seller and bought all I could...the
price was right, I like the drives and the packaging spoke volumes.

I do fear, however, that my run of good luck may run out...

AdapterId 07055h
AdapterName "KF9100/9200: Kofax Image Products Document Processor"

Mcabase has got it from the EPRM collection. KF-7300 should be somehow
different from KF9100/9200 but all can nevertheless use the same ADF, as,
for instance, some Quatech boards do.

Why not make a CD image of that OS load to preserve it for posterity?
