I only signed up because I wanted to comment on the DG terminators.
I used to work for DG as a field tech in my duties there I commonly worked on MV8000, MV1000, MV4000, C300 and many other systems and subsystems such as vacuum driven reel to reel tape drives and Line printers that would print 900 lines of text per minute. I remember these items well good for you keeping them I think some where I still have a 10 meg disk pack. for those that don’t know a 10 meg pack was 4 platters 1/8 inch thick each and about 16 inches wide this would hold 10 meg of data not 10 Gigabyte just 10 meg.
@stressboy I sold the disk pack from that machine to a place that reconditions them. I had no idea anyone did that.

I was at a flee market once where I found a whole spindle of gold plated wiring in a box with copper wiring. I was very happy with my 1$ purchase.
