Hi Neil! I’d rather you would be on the S-100 VDP V2 team even if its delayed a bit.
I think this is a big enough project we will be working on it for a while.
In particular the RAMDAC and pseudo VGA interface has a lot of mysteries yet to be solved.
I will send you a board. Please send me your current shipping address.
Thanks and have a nice day!

Subject: Re: S-100 VDP V2 prototype boards arrived!
I'd love to build one however I'm in the middle of moving to a new place. I probably won't be settled in for another 6+ weeks. If you think this delay will be OK then I'd like to get one otherwise please feel free to send it to someone who can participate sooner.
Hi! Good news! The S-100 VDP V2 prototype boards arrived! They are looking good.
There are four PCBs total and I would like to send them out to some builders for build and test.
I am guessing Leon, Pontus, John, and maybe Neil should be the initial build and test team.
Are there any changes or other volunteers? Please let me know. Once I hear from them I will send out the boards right away!
If you would like to help out defray the cost of the four prototype boards please send a PayPal to LYN...@YAHOO.COM
The prototype PCBs cost about $40 each so anything the builders would like to contribute towards the project would be greatly appreciated.
Thoughts, ideas, questions all welcome. Thanks and have a nice day!
