Welcome to the list! Thanks for joining an shedding some light on the

Perhaps you could elaborate on the compatibility between the TOAD 
versions and other PDP-10 processors. Also what operating systems do 
they run, both previous and current versions?

And, the question I suppose some of us have, where can I get one? (I 
know there was only a handful TOAD-1s, but what about the TOAD-2, and is 
there a TOAD-3?)
