|Some words about the history of this site|
A bit later in 1998 I could move to Sascha's German homepage ( www.zock.com/khm ) by his kindly offer and he did patiently all my updates sent by e-mail. Due to a big server problem in June 1999 all sites on this server were unavailable for a few days and in the meantime I got the kindly offer by Thierry Schembri / France to move to his well known Computingmuseum-server. Now "http://www.sharpmz.computingmuseum.com" was born and later the name "http://www.sharpmz.org" was created.
I found my first MZ-821 on a Northern Germany Easter-flea-market in 1995. In 2001 / 2002 I could buy by ebay auctions a MZ-80K with a lot of hardware, software, and informational materials and a MZ-40K with inbuilt option 1. Several MZ-700, MZ-800, and a MZ-80A, a MZ-80B, a MZ-3541, and a MZ-5600 were kindly spent in these years by two fans which stopped there SHARP-MZ-activities. All systems with a lot of hardware, software, and informational materials.
I bought "tons" of old German and some English magazines published up from the years 1981 and some Japanese magazines ( Oh! MZ ) are available too. These carry a big source of information which will be used and referenced next here time by time.
Sylvain Bizoirre ( President of the former French user club "The SHARPENTIERS" ), Arjan Habing ( a former member of the former Dutch user club MZ-GG, PUC, SUC, Neptunes Productions, and other clubs ), Reinhard Soetje ( a former member of the SUC / UK ), and other fans kindly provided me with a lot of the old club magazines which contain many information too. Information contained in several books and in operating / installation / service manuals spent from these fans are waiting for its preparation now. Thanks a lot to you all for your help.
At this point I decided to redesign my existing pages, to change its
outfit completely, and to expand my site to all MZ's I own now. I'm
very thankful to all visitors and to all fans who helped and want to
help in the future to keep this site alive.
In 1998 the only MZ-700-emulator I could find in the Internet is designed
by Marukun / Japan. He kindly changed his emulator for European
standard ( ASCII, English ) by my request. Next Michael
Franzen's and Matthias Koeppe's emulators
followed and later the emulators of Bernd Krueger-Knauber and Zdenek Adler ( Windows
/ DOS, Java,
and 8050 ).
The emulators of Shogo Okamoto ( unfinished
), Jaroslav Kysela, Tony
Dolejsi, and Michal Medek which I all found by
chance while surfing around.
