   The last time we had this discussion I emphasized the need to have 
the SS-50 Bus SWTP 6800 system on display because at the time in the 
mid-70's it offered the only real alternative to the S-100 bus based 
Intel/Zilog systems of the time.   SWTP sold these kits and video 
terminal kits direct to hobbyists so many got started in the 
microcomputer hobby because of them.   This kind of got passed over in 
that discussion for other systems so I am glad that it now shows up on 
this list.   I built their CT-64 terminal kit right after I built my 
IMSAI and while the build quality was not up to IMSAI standards, it was 
cost effective and worked well when completed.  I am glad to see SWTP
