We brought home a VT100 to display it together with the PDP-11/03 on the retrogathering in Västerås. Unfortunately it broke down during the checkout process. Now it is repaired. Here is the story.
The PDP-11/04 we received was missing CPU and memory. It was extremely dirty had a lot of problems with the programmer's console. Now it runs the classic Adventure game. See the story here.
The old Cromemco System One that we received many years ago has received a well deserved over haul and better documentation.
A nice, small HP9000/300 was revived. Just a few capacitors needed changing in the monitor, then it was as happy as when it was manufactured 30 years ago.
A nice man in Switzerland offered a fully working PDP-11/44 machines to us for the cost of shipping. It was really very hard to turn down such an offer. So we didn't. This is the full story.
Finally, after almost one and a half year of work (not full time though...) I am finished restoring the PDP-11/04 computer and it works together with a contemporary tape drive and a printing terminal. The machine is running the CAPS-11 operating system and also the CAPS-11/BASIC. See here for the full story and also a short video clip.
A new hardware project has been started to make it possible to recover and possibly write DECtapes without a proper DEC host running. The TU55 USB controller project.
