But i'll climb into the machine later tonite and have a peek.
If TOS 1.4 is a straight switch then great.
i keep coming across articles that mention more pins than the TOS sockets have, using EPROMS and then making reference to bending the pins?
Were the larger size EPROMS cheaper or something?

1 case in point re: file selector...
You have to TYPE B:\*.* in the filename at the top if you wanna access drive B: there is NO option for selecting Drive B: on the right hand side. VERY annoying lol.
The HD drives would cut my collection of disks in half! (Roughly) .. mind you so would an UltraSatan ...
Storing MSA disks with 80/10 can still go over 726k then your into the realm of splitting
