That may actually be one of my old systems. I got three of them
in the late 80s, kept two of them for a few years, then sent them
along to new homes.
Exxon Office Systems had a large facility near Princeton, NJ,
where a lot of System 8000 work was done. My systems came indirectly
from that facility.

Nope...just userland programming.

Was it a short rack and a tall rack? If so, those were likely mine.
