I briefly had it running on MIT-AI (the KS, not the KA) in 2009 on an RM03,
but the CRAM died and we haven't had the cycles available to do something
about that.  It's on deck for next year.

(Yes, MIT-AI.  We purchased it from CZ, who rescued it from the AILab skip,
 then from the Symbolics skip, then eventually sold it on eBay when he had
 to.  It still has the MIT de-acquisition sticker on the front panel.  It's
 next to the Toad-1 in the computer room.)
