    Does anybody else here remember this computer?

    I just came across this page about a computer I remember very well...I wrote several programs for it and we sold a whole load to BT as test machines for exchanges...

    HX-20 - Milestone Products - Seiko Epson Corporation

    I preferred it's follow up the PX-8...

    [edit] ...and I still have some of the option slot boxes that I used for project work...
