Winner, Name that Ware August 2018

The Ware for August 2018 is Micom router, with an EasyRouter HCF feature pack installed. It’s interesting how the ROM cartridge drew many people to the conclusion this was some sort of an old laser printer motherboard thanks to the ancient practice of purchasing fonts as physical ROM cartridges — I would have thought the same initially, except most laser printers also have a pretty substantial general purpose CPU built into them, and there isn’t enough RAM on board either for that type of application. SAM nailed it — I only slightly blurred some of the numbers to try and give something to search for, as Micom is a pretty obscure company and almost everything about this piece of hardware pre-dates modern search engines. Congrats, email me for your prize!
