I have a PDP-8/E (1970) and 8/M (1972) operational.
I guess among the DEC fans, the classic-8 (1965) owners would be
amongst the top...curious to know of any operational PDPs prior to the
classic-8s? (the PDP-1 in CHM doesn't count! :-)
Hmmm...I also remember someone scored on a LGP, but forgot whether
it's operational or not..
