If there are any Heathkit aficionados in the VCF group that aren't aware of "SEBHC" it's the so-called Society of Eight-Bit Heathkit Computerists, which currently collaborates via a google group:


pretty strong signal-to-noise ratio on this list, with typically a handful of messages a day.  Mostly 8-bit platforms, mainly H8 and H89 but the occasional discussion of Z100, H11 (LSI-11), ET-3400 or HERO.  Many former employees of Heathkit or associated small companies are on the list; also a lot of previous DEC folks. The group maintains several archival repositories of software and documentation and is active in producing modern updates and enhancements to these classic systems (see especially http://koyado.com/Heathkit/Welcome.html).  

New SEBHCers welcome...
