Nova 2 and 3 stuff shows up fairly often, as does the occasional 32-bit
Eclipse. I'd love to get my hands on an S/280 or even a S/130 but
haven't managed to as of yet. An original Nova (two CPU cards, 4K
core boards) would be an incredible find, as would a Supernova SC.

I've never actually _seen_ an M/600, much less seen one up for grabs.
According to Terry Dowling this 16-bit machine actually had enough
hardware hooks to do demand paging but nobody ever got around
to implementing it in AOS.
