Technical progress

      John Walker made an impressive demo version of Autodesk, our super filing system, for the Computer Faire. It got quite a good response, especially considering that we didn't claim to be able to release it in less than three months.

John also has the Z80 slave processor from Sierra Data Systems running CPM 2.2 under supervision of our 9900 system. This means we can install CPM in any of our systems for about $600. He has also converted WINDOW to CB-80, the compiled version of CBASIC. All we have to do is convert 1,000-2,000 lines of assembly code, which will allow it to page files on disc, and we have a valuable product for CPM systems ready to go![Footnote]
