Re: HP minicomputers?
I’m glad to see a few others are also involved with these wonderful beasts. If you have a 2116C, you might be interested in additional core planes – some are still available here - http://www.electronicsurplus.com/hewlett-packard-5060-8331-ferrite-core-memory-board . The challenge will be coming up with XY drivers (shared with the 2100), inhibit cards (unique to the 2116C?) and “over-the-top” connectors (also shared with 2100).
There is a lot of overlap in the various interface cards used in the 211x boxes and the 2100 but I’ve never seen a real list. It might be worth starting one.
Finally, anyone hear from Brent Hilpert lately? His website – a great resource for many HP systems – seems to be mostly non-functional.

The 2114B I know J
We picked it up in Belgium and shipped it to Jon a few years ago.
It was a big shipment and a pain in the ass to get it packed right.
Jack, the HP Computer Museum has various models of the 2116 (including an 8K 'A' that runs) and 2114. We almost got our hands on a 2115 but it was not to be...
If you need any info in getting your collection going feel free to ask, happy to help.
