Just a heads-up to whoever is interested -- the article is currently on the
homepage of http://www.technologyreview.com and the direct link is
http://www.technologyreview.com/InfoTech/17903/. A few projects didn't make
it into the article, such as Bob Armstrong's Cosmac Elf and PDP-8, etc., but
I'm still pleased with how it turned out. More important, there is real
news -- Sellam Ismail is now offering a replica PDP-1 front panel!
>>>>> would you mind posting a list of the available kits? Thanks, John R.
