Hi all --

I picked this DPS-6 up over the summer and it's just taking up space 
(quite a bit of space) in the corner of my basement.  This is a custom 
16-bit, bitsliced, microcoded CPU from the early 80s with (I believe) 
8mb of memory, and ethernet.  It would originally have run a version of 
GCOS.  It's about the size of a large-ish minifridge, but a bit deeper.  
It's also quite heavy!

It's a neat machine, but it's very obscure and unfortunately incomplete 
(it is missing both mass storage and storage controllers).  Otherwise, 
it is complete and in good condition (albeit a bit dirty).  So you can 
see why you'd really want to have it in your collection .

If anyone's up for a project, drop me a line.  Local pick up in Seattle, WA.
