I have one, but haven't gotten around to playing with it yet. Keep wanting

While that's certainly true, has anyone on the list ever done anything with
the Lab I/O stuff on a MINC? I got one years ago with all the docs and
software (everything, really, except for the cart, which the lab kept for
something else). Mine only has one or two modules - a clock board and one
of the input boards (I'd have to check the exact types), but since I didn't
have much, I've only ever booted RT-11 and noodled around on the VT105.
ISTR the CPU bay is stuffed with a KDF-11, 256K of memory, an RXV21, a
DLV11J, and an IBV11.
Over the years, I've been given plenty of Qbus parts, but I've never run
across any loose MINC modules. I'm curious if anyone else ever got a MINC
loaded enough to do something fun with it.
