A project log for OMNI 4 - a Kaypro 2x Logic Analyzer

A while back I acquired a rare logic-analyzer, whose lone system-diskette needed backing-up. Now this page is all things OMNI 4

1) An image-search for '"Omni 4" "Logic Analyzer"' results in many hits from this project-page... pretty cool. OTOH, it's quite strange, saying that many of the images are "4-5 days ago" that were actually several months ago. (is it 4-5 days ago that Google crawled on 'em?)

2) A resulting-image doesn't show anything related to the OMNI4... so I clicked through to the page to see what Google thought made it relevant... Apparently MAME now comes with the OMNI4 ROM (?!)

"October, 26th 2017" ... "Changelog" ...

"What's new in this version:" ... "New clones marked as NOT_WORKING:" ... "- Omni 4 Logic Analyzer [rfka01]"


A bit more research...

Added as a 'diff' patch 10-15-2017.downloads/mame/mame-0191/

Cool! Glad to see it won't get lost to bit-rot. Is this your doing @Ziggurat29?

...ah... the ROM's not included with MAME's source-code... so I guess it still has to be downloaded from somewhere.

Nope, not my doing. I did post a reply on a forum (I cant' recall precisely, maybe 'vintage computers' or something like that) to a person who was looking for Omni information and put a link to your project.  But probably it is simply someone who stumbled upon your project, and downloaded your rom images and added it to mame themselves.
