Well, Ashley, in case you haven't noticed, the restoration project that
you're currently undertaking is pretty fascinating as well ;)

It's not where you are, it's what you're doing with what you've got.

Thank gawd for ther Internet, eh? :)

I relied heavily on the Internet to get my PDP-11 working. It wasn't
