Ummmm, no way. MAXC was a special purpose microcoded machine designed by

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.
