Awesome! Keep us posted!
Another quick update! I did end up winning the auction and now have the PET at home! Unfortunately, it does have some issues that need to be figured out yet. The cursor does not appear at all when the computer boots up. Sometimes vertical lines also show up on the screen. I read online that someone swapped the 6520 PIA chips to fix this issue. It helped me with the cursor issue, but unfortunately the vertical lines appear more frequently. BASIC also does not seem to work properly either. When doing a simple BASIC prompt it errors out. If anyone has any good resources on PET troubleshooting, that would be greatly appreciated! In the meantime, I will continue to work on the PET to see if I can get it working right. I will also update the forums here with any progress/information I find!
