Yes, frontpanels do. It is a shame that no computer has had one since the
1970s. There just is no need for them anymore.

What was the last machine to have a switch register and lights? The oldest
I can think of is one of the HP1000s (help me with the model number!).

Has anyone actually captured a KA-10? There has _got_ to be one stuffed
away in a barn somewhere.
