Looking to make some space so i can work on some of the bigger gear i have
sitting around here. All this stuff was stored in a climate controlled
environment. I pick up interesting things whenever i can, be it at the
scrapyard, flea markets, etc, that is where most of this came from. I

One though, if no one can help, see what it would cost to rent the locker,
or find out what the cheapest/smallest one is and have this guy move it,
and you rent it.
I've done that before.

I've been studying core ROM for a while now, and there doesn't seem
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

Can you post a description of this box again? I had already deleted the earlier

So I seem to recall hearing tales of PMI cards emitting smoke when plugged
into a Q/Q/ backplane. That doesn't seem to have happened
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
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.

Spring cleaning has unearthed manuals I no longer need (not clear if I ever
needed them ... ).
Here's the list:
Univac an/uyk-7 theory & diagrams
Univac federal systems Technical Bulletins (1973)
IBM 1620&1622 CE manuals & complete system diagrams (vol 1,2, & 3)
IBM 3031 theory of ops diagrams

Many thanks for these detailed answers ! :)
Indeed, I finally do not know exactly what Nova my DCC is the clone.
Another specialist suggested that it was rather a clone of NOVA 1200?
Note that in Nixdorf contracts for the 600 series, these machines were
sometimes updated with a new CPU over
