Fingers Crossed for 2021 ...

2020 was the worst! COVID kept the museum closed for much of the year and a mains water pipe bursting causing a flood kept us closed for the rest. 
We're hoping to re-open in the next few months ... fingers crossed! Read More >>>

CEGMON User's Guide

'CEGMON has been developed to provide you with the kind of firmware support that you need to get the most out of your computer. When Ohio Scientific wrote their SYNMON monitor, in the none-too-distant days of expensive computer memory, it is clear that cost was rather more important than flexibility or 'userfriendliness'. To save on cost, OSI's SYNMON 2K monitor chip actually contains monitors for several different machines, and only a meagre 3/4 K is used for each type. CEGMON uses the full 2K of monitor space. The result is, we hope, a monitor PROM that gives your machine more features and flexibility than any computer in the price range, while retaining the greatest practicable compatibility with the existing firmware and software.'

Note received from Richard Elen, the developer of this EPROM:

'The replacement monitor EPROM was released in 1980; the product was distributed by Mutek in Box, Wiltshire and the documentation was typeset by Wordsmiths in Street, Somerset.'
