I got to see that DG just after he picked it up in Akron. He stopped by the Large Scale Systems Museum in New Kensington PA and we gave it a look over and also discussed the docs he got with it and what to tackle first.

Now if only it had come with some of those cool blue/green DG terminals :)

I still remover the day he sat down in front of the HP 2116B, he had never touched a blinking light front panel, he asked if Dave or I minded if he erased the program in memory, we said no, he powered it on and 2 min later was reading the programming docs for it and wrote a quick blinking lights program in like 15 min.

Connor is a good guy!
