Many thanks for your efforts - these documents look very interesting.
Given the fact, that Rolm was founded in 1969, I really guess that by
the time the brochure was printed, no running hardware existed at all.

As Will mentioned, this was 10 days ago. It was really a cool 
event with lot of interesting people and their reminiscences and

Have a good time and best wishes,
