If you check my home_systems web page, in the recent_acquisitions
section, I have the items listed.

To answer the question, in the first rack are 3 RL01s, 1 RX01, a
pdp-8/a and a pdp-8/e. In the second rack are TU56, 2 Diablo
(RK05 equivalents) and a lab-8/e (the section above the blue/green
8/e panel is the I/O area for data acquisition). The third rack
contains a laboratory peripheral system (LPS) which is a UNIBUS

I will be able to copy data between multiple formats -- RK05, RL01,
DECtape, RX01. I'll be able to breadboard stuff that could be
connected to the lab-8/e... something not pictured is a display
scope on which the lab-8/e could display stuff by driving beam X and Y
and beam intensity.

>Last question: What did you use to make this picture?

Powershot 350 digital camera, downloaded to my PC, gamma-edited,
uploaded to the web page along with updates to the home_systems.html
page to point to the new picture...
