Ummmm, no way.  MAXC was a special purpose microcoded machine designed by
the usual suspects --- Thacker and Lampson to emulate a PDP-10.  Ed Fiala
did the microcode.  Xerox refused to buy a PDP-10 and they got one anyway.
The Nova was probably the interface machine at the time of that net

There is a paper that describes MAXC somewhere.  But this doesn't have
anything to do with rescuing machines.
