Hm. In 1986 I was given a pair of pdp8/I's, a third 8/I that was broken, 
an RK8, and a bunch of packs from UMBC's psychology lab that were in an 
old closet. I could not move out the PDP12 that was in there (would 
never fit in my station wagon) but I did take out the FPP12 unit.

Ah those were the days. I wonder if the pdp12 is still there sometimes....
