Hi Daniel; Bonjour! I am in Los Angeles and purchased a collection from a fellow who is very old; his caretaker is selling everything and I got many vintage items plus a Boris Is King original unit like on your home page. I also like collecting 'single  board computers' and the KIM-1 is among the very first with a MOS Technology 6502 processor in 1976 just before the Z--80 era I think but not much. The Kim1 was used also for chess but was a programmable HEX based computer (see www.kim-1.com) and it could think very well; but like Boris was not too smart; still very good for the 1976-77 era! Do you have a KIM1? This is my very first Boris; I did not know about them; your website is wonderful to keep the memory alive (even 2.5K of RAM memory) ! My Boris had no AC power supply and no batteries inside; what power supply does it need? I want to power it up. I see a 2.5 mm jack on the rear; is it + voltage on the tip and - on the sleeve/ ground (earth) side? How many volts? I will make a DC supply and power it up with your help. I looked up the Z80 and see it is 5 volts but the display chips may be more https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zilog_Z80 is the link page. I also have a Youtube video of my museum; search entry is "Burchett Museum" and please take a look! [email protected] for other readers of this wonderful site and DO check out Vern Graner's page for KIM-1 too. Bob

Hi Daniel: I finally got a Diplomat, but without the manual. I appreciate you have a manuel for download, but I was wondering if it would be possible to get a copy of your PDF without your URL watermark across it?



Thanks anyway, Daniel... but when I didn't hear from you, I looked around a bit more, and found an unwatermarked manual online. It seems anything is on the web if you search for it... all the best, Rich.

Hi Daniel: I finally got a Diplomat, but without the manual. I appreciate you have a manuel for download, but I was wondering if it would be possible to get a copy of your PDF without your URL watermark across it? I'd like to print up as authentic a copy as I can, until I might find an original. Thanks... Rich.
