The interesting thing for this list is that often times there is a classic
computer "buried" inside these things. If its late sixties it could be a
PDP-8, if it is early 70s it could be a PDP-11. Or a Honeywell 160, etc
etc. Why not go back, try to follow the teletype connections back to the
innards and see what is inside.
