Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

Stay safe, stay at home! There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

Xerox - 610C Memorywriter Communication Handbook

The Xerox 610 Memorywriter was a word orocessor / electric typewriter released in the early 1980s.  The manual covers Communications, a specific part of its functionality.

From the introduction:

'Communications is the optional feature on your Memorywriter which provides you with the ability to "talk" to another Memorywriter, a communicating device or host computer.

Communication is simply the ability to send (transmit) or receive information from one device to another. The devices may be right around the corner from one another or many miles apart.  Typically, communication takes place over the same telephone lines that youuse for conversation. These telephone lines are referred to as "voice grade". A modem is used to connect the Memorywriter to the telephone line. The modem converts the information into signals that are sent over the phone to the other device.'
