Some years ago I rescued most of a DG Nova 1210 from a skip (dumpster).
'Most' meaning the rack-mount chassis, CPU board, core memory board and a
special interface board. Alas it was (and still is) missing the cooling fan
(no problem) and the lights-and-switches board (big problem...)
When I got it, I sent a message to some of my classic-computer-loving
freinds with the subject; 'Nova -- it doesn't go' and went on to expalin
the urban legend and why it was true in this particular case.
