Ooooh! That's really cool. My high school had one of these, 
used it before we talked them into buying an Altair. 
The punch card unit was pretty spiffy, I think it used 
8 of the row bits? And there were instructions you could 
punch that were not available from the keyboard. The cards were 
the punchamatic type: hanging chad and all. When I was 15 it 
was a lot of fun to program.

I'd love to know what the memory technology was inside 
-- acoustic delay, static RAM, or what?
