Hello, I would like to ask about on the type designation of the keyboard to the computer Olivetti ETS 2010 ( I have this computer and monitor, but I do not have a keyboard, and here in the Czech Republic can not get and therefore need to look around Europe and farther into the world. Thank you for your help. Sincerely Lubos Janku of the Czech Republic.

I worked at Syntrex 1985-86 on the production floor and in customer service. Most of the units we built had zodiac names. The terminals were called Aquarius and I think the hard drive cabinets were Geminis. The hard drives were huge, like a suit case, and about 150 meg each. The smaller ones were just coming out in 1986 and were about the same physical size of the ones made now at 10-30 meg.

I actually worked for the company that made these for Olivetti. They were made in Eatintown nJ by Syntrex Inc. The os was a proprietory one called SOS and was somewhat like a unix system. The features were ahead if the times.

In a way it was ahead of its time, you could split the screen in two and work on two different documents at one time.
I used the keyboard and tractor printer, the keys on the keyboard were a bit inclined to break if you had a heavy touch (years of manual typewriters), but we finally moved on to dos, and a different way of working was born.

About the Olivetti ETS1010, I used one for a few years. It was a great machine.

Have just rebuilt an "olivetti PCS 44/C"
and need access to the "cmos" or bios to tell it it has a new harddrive, but I don't know the key to access the cmos?

Also does anyone know of the size of disk you are limited to in an old box like this?

At last I may be getting somewhere
Thanks in advance
