Here in NZ and around the world many of us are in lockdown and spending more time on our computers, if that were possible.  I have just completed the restoration of a PDP-8 Straight 8 which I believe is the only one in New Zealand.  You can view the restoration story and find appropriate resources here:  https://pdp-8.nz <https://pdp-8.nz/>   

While it plays Chess, it would be great if someone wanted to write (say) a Prime Number Generator, or some other application and email it to me off list.  I have Focal-69 and can probably source other languages for this wonderful old machine with 4K of memory.
