FP 6000

Joscelyn FLORES adds:
Purchasing my FP-6000 has been an adventure by itself. It all started in fact, when I purchased the FP-200 in October 1983. I loved this computer, and programmed it a lot during the following two years. During this period, I projected to write a book for it. However, Casio's first french distributor for computers, Métrologie and its "popcorn micro" division did a terrible job, resulting in weak sales.

Casio then decided to pick Lansay to do sales and servicing. I kept bugging Lansay's sales director for numerous months to obtain technical information. Oh, and in the meantime, I also purchased my FP-1100 there.

One day, Lansay decided to stop the Casio distribution altogether. I made them an offer to buy back their stock, but they decided it was too small and sold everything to a fleamarket broker in Montreuil, near Paris. I succeeded in tracking this guy back less than a week later and offered to buy him the lot, in which there was the FP-6000S I was longing for.

Only thing, there was no operating system with it. Which led me to write to Casio Europe (in Netherlands at that time), asking for one. A week later, I received the two-disk package, along with a bill for 350 forint (a fortune for my pockets). I explained how and why I needed the OS, and that I could not afford it. Casio's manager kindly offered me the cost. phew :)

Over the following years, I managed to track down lots of technical information and Service Manuals. Unfortunately no other specific software other than the ones produced by Casio itself.
