One sharp-eyed person who actually read my post, Steve Tockey, noticed
that I had switched the software running on the replicas. The real demos
* ALTAIR 8800 replica (Chris Davis) via RS-232 running MITS
Extended 16K BASIC (Bill Gates, Paul Allen, Monte Davidoff)
* PiDP-8/I replica (Oscar Vermeulen) via USB running OS/8
That'll teach me to do a quick posting before I get in the car for a
6-hour drive to VCF.
