        Hi Joe,
Join the club ... No one seems to know much about them. Other than the
fact that they're big! As I recall there were 3 or 4 big floor model
hard drives, at least one dual 8" table unit and a big 9 track tape deck
too. The CPU was about two rack widths X 4' high or so and Heavy! It's
still sitting in the guys storage building I guess.
