Been thinking about digging out the A1000 for a while. Started on the internet to see what information was available about re-awakening dormant hardware. That's how I found this place. Haven't had time to actually work on it so who knows what awaits in that original box I carefully repacked everything in all those years ago. I know where everything is, just need time for it.
A1000 upgraded vie front slot to 512k
KS / WB 1.3
third party external floppy
third party amber monochrome monitor
no speakers (in-period I sometimes ran a cable across the room to my hifi. Speaker placement was all wrong, but better than silence)
Panasonic KXP-1080i dot matrix printer (probably needs a cleaning and a ribbon now)
joystick borrowed from my atari vcs
I also "rescued" an A500 that was stored poorly (no dirt or moisture, just dust) That will need at least dismantling and a through cleaning before I put power to it.
trapdoor memory expansion with RTC (confirmed no battery leakage)
external commodore brand floppy drive
commodore color monitor (don't know which one) stored in a trashbag so that "should" be dust-free inside
Would y'all be interested in the serial number of either machine? I'm also on a car forum and they like to ask about a member's VIN is why I thought to ask about that.
