Re: S-100 8086 Up and Runing

Thank you very much Leon!  This is truly wonderful!  This is like a
dream come true!

I've upgraded your wiki access to "editor" so you should be able to
better edit the 8086 pictures as you see fit.

The last photo is acting kind of "funky" but I have no idea what's

We've made so much progress!  Much yet remains though!

Thank you very much for your efforts!  Have a Happy Holidays!
