I am getting a lot of new documentation which seems to be refute some of the
facts on the PDP-8 FAQ. I have been in contact with quite a few retired DEC
engineers from the '60s.

I was able to find the sole designer of the PDP-8/S who is now retired,

Saul B. Dinman, Product Line Manager, Module Product Line -1966-69

I have updated my website with pictures of the prototype PDP-8/S which was
built entirely on
Laboratory Blue Plug-in Panels (Blue ones - H901) in 1966. I also got a lot
more information on the 8/S and will be posting a lot more information on
the Patents Saul acquired as a result of the design of the PDP-8/S.

Please go to http://www.pdp8.com/ , click on the 8/S picture. and click on
the prototype link. Changes to the text are now in Bold.

WARNING!!! Pictures are big and take up much bandwidth!

I am gathering documentation from prior DEC engineers to make changes to the



PDP-8 and other rare mini computers
