It is possible that this program was never released to the public. I am not sure. I never saw a new-in-the-box one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

here is some information about the plato system, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PLATO_%...

 

i have only gotten the cart to work a few times, most of the times it gives me a communications error.

 

 

thanks for looking,

Incredible.  I would guess it needs an 830 modem or the 850 interface and a Hayes modem to work.  Or some dedicated way to connect to the Plato network.

 

My best guess would be the 830 modem that had the phone cups....you would dial up the network and then the cartridge would do it's thing.

most likely that modem. slow but it worked. it was way ahead of its time for sure.
