Looking for...

But a collector never gets enough so what I'm looking for right now is

  • A ND-5850 CPU or ND-5800 CPU.
  • Hardware information about OWS, also known as the butterfly
  • Microcode information for ND-110/ND-120 CPU:s
  • More ND-10 and ND-50 hardware
  • A 80 Mbyte CDC SMB cartridge disk to read the media I got
  • Paper tape reader / punch
  • Card reader / punch
  • Peripherals for the NORD-1, like drum memory or NCR 655 disk drive.
  • Cartridge drives to be able to read some of my media


Some of my ND projects beside this wiki

I made a brief showing at a local lan, Frostbyte 2013, with some of my computers, among other a ND-110 with a notis terminal.

Got some more documentation and software during spring 2016, among other things several versions of SINTRAN III and OWS-related stuff.

Restoration notes

  • Many fasteners are DZUS quarter turn quick lock. One source of these are Aeromateriel
