    My Sol 20 is up and running:


    As expected, I had to replace all of the foam pads in the keyboard. For 
some reason, the TexElec pads hardly worked at all so I sacrificed a Sun Type 
4 keyboard for its pads. Other than that, a couple of RAM problems (dirty DIP 
switch and a defective 74LS157 multiplexer) were all that I had to fix.

    As time permits, I'll investigate getting a couple of 8" drives working 
with a Micromation Doubler board. For now, I'm loading programs through the 
serial port at 1200 baud.
