RE: [N8VEM-S100:1079] Upcoming S-100 SMB Reorder

For what is  it worth those HP HEX displays are real nice, larger and
clearer than the TIL's. Sure is frustrating they stopped making them.
Be careful however with eBay there are a few different types of these HP HEX
displays. You need the HP 5082-7340's. Make sure they are 7340's.
Others only show digits 0-9.

Andrew on the console IO board, remember the next version needs to have that
keyboard input interrupt patch implemented for MSDOS.

maybe we can do a group order with UTsource to get the price of the HP
displays down... I'm looking for 22 of them...
