I had a chance to buy a used pdp-8e from the physics department for "cheap".
I guess it was still a little too big for my tastes and the Apple II came
out about that time.  ;)

I guess we get away with such OT remarks 'cause there's so many of us
old-timers.  But really computers were more fun when they didn't do
everything so easily.  The crisply explicit does not engage the imagination.
Multi-user space wars (written by a friend) on a text terminal on a HP
realtime mini with 4 other players was, well, better than anything in gaming
that has happenned since.
