I finally have a PDP-8/m. On the 1st of November someone that knows I'm
looking for one notified me of a Internet auction that was ending in about
4 hours, and I was able to get the winning bid of $356 in (thankfully this
wasn't on eBay).

M8330 -- Timing board (system clock)
M8310 \_ KK8E CPU control
M8300 / KK8E CPU registers
M847 -- MI8E Hardware Bootstrap Loader.
M848 -- KP8E Power fail and auto-restart.
M849 -- shield to isolate memory from CPU
M8650 -- KL8E RS232 or current loop serial interface.
G104 \
H220 > MM8E 4K memory (H220)
G227 /
M8320 -- KK8E Bus terminator

It arrived today, and I just unboxed it a few minutes ago. As a result you
can see the web page with pictures at the following URL:

Now, I've got to figure out where I'm going to put it for the time being.
I also need to figure out what a couple of the cables that were included
are for. Unfortunatly I think the console interface is a 20ma interface.
However, there is a Canon plug that I've no idea what it goes to.

I'll be cleaning it up before I try and fire it up. Unfortunatly I've got
to leave for work in a little over an hour so that will have to wait till

Also, the module list that I announced yesterday has grown in size
considerably and now includes at least a few parts from the following
PDP-14 Programmable Controller

The YADML can be found at ftp://zane.brouhaha.com/pub/ModuleList.txt
