To browse the all contents, you should go to NDL, it's so hard for foreigners and also daytime workers in JapanSmile
Therefore, I have retrieved the copy of contents from paid search service via FAX:
http://db.g-search.or.jp/

Those guys can send the articles as PDF files? I guess that a FAX call to Brazil will be very expensive.

Thanks! The tweets are very informative. If the memories of Telecom-OS creator are accurate, it's the first known machine to run MSX-DOS2.

I heard rumours in the 90s that the Japanese hospitals invested in machines that were eighter based on the Turbo R, or at least used the R800 processor. Maybe worth checking out, but I bet they were all dumped in the garbage years ago.

Yes, I heard the same rumours. And I "saw" the information in a thread in MRC (hey! the one who gave this information was you) and in MSX-Banzai. But nothing more informative to help the quest to find this machine. I didn't saw anywhere what kind of equipment it is supposed to be.

It depends on the material.
If it's available, "Retrieve via e-mail" option can be selected.
In my case at this time, the call fee was not charged.
However, I don't sure whether they can provide the service for outside of Japan.
Their site seems that isn't familiar to be used for foreigners.

What a great job....!

BTW, model name ML-TS100M2 is for 2xFDD model.
This picture indicates ML-TS100, 1xFDD model.

Thanks! I fixed the model name in "original" post. The additional FDD is the only difference between the two models?

I think so, but not sure.
No detailed info about difference between the models, other than FDD.

Inspired by the found of a new hidden MSX dedicated for communications by madscient, I finished a new post in the blog, talking about the relationship about the V9938 and videotex technologies.

Thanks! This matrix will help me in other searches!

Oh, and talking about videotex terminals, we finally check a NAPLPS terminal. Take a look in the blog.
