in the article tom hints at a force feed system that let him feed 26bps but declined to comment further... what was that about?
Well he did patent the design seen in the Viewloader Revolution (agitated loader), had a patent on a belt-drive loader (forcefed loader, and created/marketed the Warpfeed (forcefed system). The reason he left those additional ports on the Classic R/T was to allow for the use of "future air-powered accessories" so that could be it, too.
Just read the article; didn't mean to repeat what was in it exactly LOL. I guess that line stuck with me from the first time I heard it 17 years ago.
Wasn't it Simon who came up with the design and first build of the warp? Or am I just being an old fart box and getting things mixed up...
