Pretty  futile to restore  until I have manuals  and a  load  tape if  
needed in front of  me. The  previous  owner  said it  powered up   and did not  
blow  smoke  so that  is a good  thing... but  even still  that   was  many 
many years  ago.
Unlike  you Jay  that has a 'mountain'  of  DG stuff in  front of  you  to  
*wicker basket  something together  from... all I have is this one lonely  
I have  no  familiarity  with  DG  op/sys   at  all.... never  ran one ..
I did had  an orig  NOVA  ( lo s/n no other    suffix  after it... about 
the  first year I was in the computer  business  sold it to someone...   I  
did  try to track  it  back but they guy  has  scrapped  it...     as  I  
found out  30   years  later.
BUT!   I  figure   DG  sould have   some sort of representation here... and 
if it   attracts MORE  DG  so  be it!Least  case it  needs  a terminal to 
display with it and ... yes... A POSTER!
This month's  'make  computer  work ' project  is  HP-3000  related.

There's nothing non-grand  about that. Nice non-blinken Eclipse with 6125
tape drive, and some type of  disk unit in the bottom. Nice.

had it  for   years     need   manuals  etc and   maybe  some sales  lit.  
scans  of  advertising  material to  display with it...   but  yea... it
cries  out to have a terminal  with it!
No, it cries out to be  restored and run rather than just sitting under a
poster. But that's just  me.
