Here's a Dr Dobbs article with a couple of pics. Takes me back.
I joined CDC in Melbourne, Aust in 1972, worked mostly on 3200 machines
- Didn't like the Cybers, but admired the horsepower. I could fix a
3200, every time, that was the best training I ever had, alone with my
machine in Hobart, I loved it. When that ended, got into PDP 3rd party
maint. Thus was a career made.
