So I spaced. 1184E-TM-001 _is_ online; not sure how I missed it!

I'm not sure there's much in the other two which isn't in the other 11/84
manuals which are already online - I think the content is mostly the same,
just arranged differently. A few minor tweaks (e.g. that sentence I found a
while back about the BIAK/BDMG jumpers on the 11/84 backplane), but nothing

I'll get to them at some point - alas, I bound them, so now I have to
un-bind them before I can scan them! Oh well!!

Lyle Bickley made that one available a couple of months back. It doesn't seem
to have made it into the repositories, though? Should I upload a copy to my
web site, and send along the URL?

Err, there are no other PDF files there, except the 11/73 CPU board prints,
which I mentioned here recently and have now been mirrored.

I should probably throw together a web page with links to all the PDP-11
files there (e.g. the one I just put together, of print sets that are
available inside other print sets), and link to that from my home page.

Alas, being of the MIT persuasion, we never did anything with DEC software
(except TWENEX, on the DECSystem20's), so I have nothing of anything to do
with DEC software - Unix all the way! ;-)
