No pictures on this page. After the install I stated poking around the machine to find out what
kind of hardware it hads a so forth. I saved some of that info so you could poke around as well:
I finally got a hold of the manuals for the pole display:
One of them is for the one with the serial pass-through (so you can hook up the display and another serial device to the a machine with one serial port). I don't know which one is which yet.
I got a copy of the thermal printer's manual: sp200fum.pdf. It's big, like 1.3MB. It's informative, however. I never knew that it had a hex dump mode (where all the signals sent to the printer will get printed as raw hex codes). I've been trying to find a way to get the thing to print our in 80 columns, but have been unsuccessful so far. Now I might be able to find out how to do it.
I finally got around to taking a look at the disk which was in the cash register when I go it. It wasn't very interesting, just a plain DOS volume loaded with DR-DOS and some other junk. If you want to see what files were on it, I saved a directory listing.
Various links and whatnot I've received as a result of the Slashdot article:
I'd also like to thank Thomas Watts for the RAM. He had some older SIMMs laying around and mailed them to me. Very cool indeed as the register is sporting 48MB of RAM. Thanks again, Tom!
