I didn't know they were in Waltham! Neat, I lived there for a year.
(It's probably only "neat" to me because I'm a west coast boy)

I've made startlingly little progress on my stab at a PDS-1 simulator,
but at least I have a working environment stubbed out. Thanks to
Bob Supnik's fantastic SIMH framework, it was amazingly easy to
throw together a new, empty simulator and start implementing it.
I haven't used C in a number of years, so I'm a little rusty, but
it's all pouring back. Like riding a bike.
