Nice machine! Got one in the early 80's and my brother ran his
accounting business with 2 of them, which I inherited when he went to
PeeCees. Had a pair of 8" floppy drives and a whopping 5Mb HD hung off
of it.

Still had 2 of them until my move to Houston 6 yrs ago. Used one at
work to format single density RX01's for our 11/45s, cheaper than
buying from DEC. I doubt that I still have any of the sw or docs, but
i'll dig thru my storage.
