PDP-8/Ss used to be quite rare, but they  have been popping out of the
woodwork for some time now. I would venture to  say they are now more
extant that Straight-8s.

Small is  survivability.

PDP-8/S was my first computer, purchased for five bucks  from a guy I
met at a hamfest. That was thirty years ago, and started me on  this
whole computer history path. It is temperamental, but still  works.
