Performing basic system operations like toggling in a bootstrap,
loading and swapping disk packs, etc would be good to document in
full-motion video. Functional minicomputers of this sort are
becoming less and less common, and so more and more people will never
get to see one or see what it was like to run one. If such videos
get made and start floating around the net (dare I suggest a set of
YouTube or Google Video submissions?), more people will get to see
the wonder of these machines that most of us here take for granted.
