Excellent page Ismenio.

You are doing a great job, spreading knowledge and enthusiasm for the old chess computers. You have a real talent for it.

Thanks Tom. Sorry for the missing picture. It should be there now.

I have to say that I wish I had your talent for taking pictures. I need 2 or 3 pictures to get the same effect that you get in just one. You always get the best angle of the computers.

I still feel sorry that Tasc is no more. I don’t see any company having interest in building something like a Tasc today

The closest thing that I see to that is a ultra portable computer like the OQO + a DGT board (or a PocketPC maybe) but even then it would be lacking many features I find important such as the LEDs on the board.

Congratulations, Ismenio, great page!

Not only were the pictures quite pretty. But I learned more about the TASC in a few minutes than in all the years since I first heard of this illustrious machine! The movie serves its purpose well: it clearly illustrates how piece recognition is carried out on this system. Unfortunately, I missed one picture at http://www.ismenio.com/Tasc_display.JPG

But for the rest - great enjoyment for every chess computer lover!

Best regards,

tom

PS The Chessman arrived and looks quite cute:

I was hoping to take care of the cosmetics on the two rooks before having the Tasc page on the site but it may take me quite some time to have them fixed. For now I'm using kid's modeling clay
It's not quite there yet but at least it makes it easier to play now. I also added a short video clip showing the piece recognition in action.

Best,
