I forgot to mention the most amazing part of the whole story: he first
acquired the machine while he was a student (I think?) at CMU, decades ago,
and has been dragging it around the country with him ever since!

He's also had to do a tremendous amount of work on it to get it running,
starting with building an entire new power harness. He's also had to find and
fix a long list of failures, all over the machine; there were bad chips on
almost every board in it.

Fritz has written most of the whole adventure up:


it's an incredible story.
