I beg to differ. Both people need a front pannel to say the least.
Both people have talents skills and hardware that need to shared.
While Nisler's PDP-8 is only a pile of parts right now, Kermit
may still live if he can compare it to a working 8. Pete lacks the
hardware know how to get his 8 working. Fixing Kirmit and Pete's
8 togther gives both people a chance to learn more.
I posted this message to cctalk in the hopes of people with
straight 8's and other 8's to share knowlage and information.
