Yes I did get Bill's message. My reply went out before his arrived,
but sat in the queue for some reason overnight before I realized it.
OS X Mail does this to me more frequently than I like.
Anyway I've looked at computerhistory.org and textfiles.com (per Steve
B) and both look like good possibilities. I just took a quick look at
hercules-390.org and will dig a little deeper there, too. I have some
more work to do on this stuff, as well as trying to keep my head above
water generally, but I will get in touch with these places as soon as
time allows. I appreciate the suggestions.
