I could swear I used a 8/I running TSS/8 in '70. Might have been '71. But
might wrong about that.

Anyone have any idea when the first 8/I's got shipped?

(this one had 4 8/L's strapped to it with those nifty green storage
scopes and a funky joystick. we had a lot of fun playing a 'snowball'
game written in a focal varient called COLPAC)
