Dammit - I was offered a Digital Group machine earlier this year and the
only thing that stopped me was the horrendous shipping cost from the US.
This thing had the (in)famous tape unit attached that contained either 4 or
6 drives; can't remember. I've still got the pix of it somewhere, and it
also spurred me on to do some digging with the result of finding Gus
Calabrese who was the founder (or one of them) of TDG in the first
