DEC PDP-14 Programmable Controller simulator

2017-04-04 Thread Charles Dickman via cctalk
I have written a PDP-14 simulator using the simh framework. Paired with a PDP-8 simulator as a front end it passes all the DEC diagnostics. A pointless effort, perhaps, because there isn't much that can be done with it without connecting it to something to control. In the course of research, I

I had worked out a deal with him for the Apollo, but I'm travelling so pick-up will be hard (but doable as a last resort), and he won't ship. If someone else plans to go up there, would you be willing to hold the Apollo for me for a couple months so I can drive down and grab it this summer? It

If anyone would be willing to rescue and hold a small-ish (large desktop) machine near there for later pickup by me this summer, it would be much appreciated. I can pay you a small fee either in beer or American currency. Please let me know if you're willing to help coordinate a rescue. --
