Say, the PTDOS discussion just jogged my memory... wasn't someone
in PROTEUS going to modify it so that it would support soft-sectored
disk systems like the NorthStar and such? Do you know if that ever

If not, I'll have to put that on my to-do list. But there are a few
years' worth of projects ahead of it (CDC 6000 series simulator,
PL/1 compiler, Multics simulator, Multics source code rescue, etc).

But if my sanity and health survives, it'll get done!
