In the Lisa Hardware Manual, it says that expansion card icons can be stored in a compressed format if the MSB of the icon count byte is set. And it also states that "a special program is currently available to do the compression", but I'm guessing that program has probably been lost to time. Does anybody know how this compression algorithm works and how the compressed icons are stored? After compression, are all icons the same length in ROM or or does the length of the icon vary based on the efficiency of the compression on that particular icon?

I also join the above request. I'm also seeking for LisaList 1.0 image.

Is this the same project?

https://impact.utdallas.edu/project/40336

Looks like they hoped to raise $4000, but only raised $1,325

Please tell us your budget for this purchase. 

What do you consider a non-insane price for a Lisa to be in 2024?  How does having a complete system ( as in with KB, mouse, and maybe Profile) effect the value?   What about working state, or physical/cosmetic condition?  Also should a museum or University get a discount?

Looking for a Lisa 2 on behalf of the Media Archaeology Lab at UT Dallas. They are looking for one for part of their collection and for exhibition at VCFSW in June. I've been keeping my eyes peeled for one that wasn't listed at an insane price for a couple months now, but to no avail. Decent physical condition is preferable, as is a working state, but necessary repairs to the PSU/card stack are not outside their capabilities if need be. If you're in Texas and have a Lisa you're potentially looking to part with, we're interested. A keyboard would be nice as well, but is not a deal-breaker. If not in Texas, shipping is not out of the picture if you're willing.

Cutting these out perfectly is pretty tedious. Anyone know if there's a service where I can get these professionally printed and cut-out?
Find a printer that can do die-cutting. Making the die will cost you something, likely more than the cost of printing these cards.

I made these PDFs using vectors from Rocky Bergen's excellent Lisa papercraft design. His vintage computer papercraft models are adorable, and of course he did that wonderful work on the opening titles to Before Macintosh. Anyway, one of these PDFs is in color, and the other is in monochrome for use with black and white printers. If printed out to 100% scale on a US-letter sized sheet of paper and cut out, they should fit correctly into a Lisa keyboard.

Good catch. That one was already on the tracking sheet, but I didn't see it on the incomplete data tab. Interesting it's such an early 2/5 build.

Looking at the list I noticed something else: I think normal 2/10 production, and machines being marked as 2/5 (Model A6S0300) happened on the same day, the 159th day of 1983 (Wednesday June 8th).

Not to burst your bubble, but here's an outlier to your theory:

It's an A6S0300, but produced on the 125th day of 1983.
