Sam Ismail used to have a DPS-6, if not more than one, but I don't think he was ever able to do anything with it.  Does it have GCOS-6 installed?

I worked on DPS-8's and GCOS-8 a lifetime ago.  I did a little with GCOS-6, mainly assisting with moving operations from DPS-6 Mini's over to HP 9000 workstations running DPS-6 emulators.

I never had any GCOS-6 doc's and my GCOS-8 doc's were sent North a couple years ago.
