11/44 is alive :)

Thanks to all who helped! I checked out my backplane (NOW I see why the 44's
always tilt up in the rack, so you can frequently get to the backplane
wiring) and sure enough, missing NPR jumpers. I wire wrapped them back in
(laughing at just how long ago it was since I had to use a wirewrap tool)
and now - voila. The 44 comes up just fine, passing T, T/E, and T/A tests
anyways. I can also deposit and examine a random memory location or two,
probably a good sign.

Now I just have to find out why it doesn't seem to think I have a TU58
attached...then get some RL02's up...

Another question - I was perusing the net for what OS's I can run on the 44.
I already have RT11 with TSX+ up on another machine, so on this one I was
looking for something different. Being as my bent is multiuser basic
machines (like HP2000 TSB), I was piqued by some references to EduSystem25 I
think it's called. I got the impression it USED to be Poly BASIC, but that
software was later acquired by DEC and turned into the EduSystem25. There
was a link saying where EduSystem25 can be found, but alas, the link is
dead. Does anyone know where manuals and media might be found for
