    It's one thing when it's a ten-year-old piece of microcomputer
gear.  It's something else when it's a 30+ year-old minicomputer.

    Insert very sad emoticon here.

    The only upside is that the internals of the machines seem OK;
I only need to find a source for the correct front-panel switches
and proper trim (the latter, I accept, is impossible to find; it'll
need to be faked).
