Re: R & W Sidney Levin Minstrel band identified

I was always unsure about the spelling of his surname as publications have differing, either with an 'e' ( Braithwaite) or without. I have both of these printer blocks which show another two missing Modern Enterprises machines. 'The Hula Girl' description reads " All the allure of the South Sea...

Re: Game ideas

That's an interesting idea. Now, how to do it....?! I guess a single sequence could be done with a few transistors in a chain. To get it changing the sequence I'd have to do something with a Pi or similar. Unless you know differently? I have one of these from an old mill office, with some fab names...
