OK, thanks Steve. I think the source of my information was the paragraph on Kickstarter stating: ďI have enough CPU chips to build 30 units. Thatís it, and there is no ready source for more. Youíll notice that the reward quantity is limited to 30, and thatís why. When those are all spoken for, there will be no more!Ē

Hi Kevin, Not necessarily. A comment on the Spare Time Gizmos Yahoo forum about the Feb 2013 run being the last, was based on a comment on Steve Gibson's site. The trouble with that was was that he was referring to the 2010 run! So I do not know of a credible statement that we have definitely seen the last. Any further information you might have would be appreciated. In any case, even if Bob were to decide against running any more, the board designs might well be made available for group buys to run, at some point in the future. I have already determined that significant quantities of the HD1-6120 are available from China.

This is great except I understood that the last run was THE last run.

Hi Doug, Thank you for your comments. Congratulations on completing the SBC6120's. Yes, they do take one back to fond memories of the PDP-8. I loved working with them in the labs at college, in the early 70's.

I have one of the original and RC models of this .. Both run well. Nice to try any remember all the commands with these since the PDP-8 was one of the first systems I ever programmed.
