8E cabling is horrible. I helped maintain a large TSS/8 configuration
(RK8E,TC08,RF08,PC08, lots of 8655's in an expander box) and a similar OS/8
system w/o the expander box, and those heavy shielded BC08s made working on
the CPU a nightmare. As you are aware, there is neither cable strain relief
nor card guides in those machines. It wasn't uncommon to see an Omnibus card
bent 1/4" back because of the cable strain.
