Personally, I'd be more interested in hearing more about the "TOAD-2"
controllers used in current XKL equipment, starting with:
Is the TOAD-2 a PDP-10 clone, as the TOAD-1 is?
Is it running TOPS-20 (or some subset)?
If not, is it a self-hosting system (is development for the platform
done on a TOAD-2) or is it an embedded processor, with binaries being
cross compiled on some other platform?
