My introduction to PDP-11s (and PDP-10s) was in school. The notable
introductions while I was there were: 11/34, KL10, and the 11/780 (we
had s/n 1). We had gobs of 11/40s and 11/20s (even had a few PDP-11s -
no other designation ie early 11/20s).

C. Gordon Bell had a chair in the EE department while I was there too
(though you didn't see him much -- something about this computer company
up in MA).

BTW anyone know where I can find a set of manuals for BLISS-11? It's
what I primarily programmed in (that and SAIL and eventually 'C') while
in school. If I'm feeding the nostaliga bug, I might was well do the
software as well as the hardware.
