On a related note, but a separate question, does anyone actually have
the wiring schedule for a PDP-8/S backplane? A long time ago, I was
willing to start constructing flip chip modules that made up a PDP-8,
but I could never find the wiring schedule for the backplane online so
that I could truly build the computer.
(I'm great at assembly[sic], horrible at design).
