I’ve been working on moving all my computers to one room where I can play around with them. It’s almost finished now and all computers and network equipment is in there, but nothing is hooked up to anything yet. That will have to be a later project. Here’s a sneak peek on my computer room, and don’t forget to check out the gallery for all pictures.

Finally it’s here, my eagerly awaited PDP-11 from Digital Equipment Corporation.
My very own DEC PDP-11/23
A very nice guy named Pontus had one left over which he was willing to give away if I came to pick it up. Said and done, now I’m a proud owner of a DEC PDP-11/23 from 1979. Today I powered up my PDP-11 for the first time with XXDP, next I’m going to see if I can get CP/M running on it. In the end I hope for some kind of Unix, but one step at the time. Hopefully my books on PDP-11 that I ordered on Amazon will arrive soon.
DEC System 20 @ Update, University of Uppsala
This very nice guy who gave me the PDP-11 is also a member of the computer club Update at University of Uppsala and invited us to a guided tour of their collection of old computers. It was love at first sight when I saw their DEC System 20 lined up in the corridor and I couldn’t resist taking some photos to bring with me home.
Check out my gallery for more pictures of there two beautiful computers.
