That sounds pretty cool. That is also quite a great deal of core - lucky you.

RCS/RI will (hopefully) have one of the ARPAnet machines in the near
future, to go with our old NSFnet stuff. I believe the model number is 316.
Take a look at the RCS/RI page (if you can not connect, try a different day,
as the machine may be powered down).
