>From what I've been able to find, it was 50 years ago today
that the PDP-8 was officially launched.  So Happy Birthday
to a machine that had such significant influence on so many
of us.  And a big Thank You to all those who helped to create

In recognition of this anniversary, the PDP-8/M restoration
I'm doing (on S/N 07082) reached the stage today where I
connected a terminal and was able to push characters in and
out of it.  Even as I type this, it's running the print test program
from the maintenance manual printing ASCII characters on
a terminal.

Happy PDP-8 Day, everyone!
