For that webpage, pretty much anything that isn't DEC (as each family 
of DEC hardware has its own page), and isn't a home computer type 
system.  Stuff that wouldn't normally be found in the home.

There are plenty of webpages out there dedicated to home computer or 
video game emulation, but a serious lack of any dedicated to the 
rest.  Basically it's an off shoot of the DEC Emulation Website, 
which in turn was an off shoot of the PDP-10 Emulation Webpage.
