[rescue] If one person could do it, maybe we could do this in a limited fashion for other platforms as well.

A lot of PDP-8's ended up in U.S. millitary equipment. I remember in the
early 90's being in my local electronics junk store (Fertik's in Philly)
and meeting a guy who was buying any board he could find with chips that
would work in PDP8's to use to repair those systems.

He was also buying boards that were similar in construction as he had
to train people how to solder unsolder the chips and still have them

For all I know those machines are still in use :-)

Carp are bottom feeders, koi are too, and not surprisingly are ferrets.
