It actually got all its data over SCSI. I suppose its main application was the

There is a web page out there devoted to that monitor. Shouldn't be too hard

En ligne avec Thor 2.6a.
But a graphical client/server model that slices the interface down some
arbitrary middle is like Solomon following through with his child-sharing
