The Machine Room is Back!
This is the recovered Machine Room from 2005. Please don't expect wonders. The look and feel of this site is nine years old, and so is its code. Some of the functionality has been recovered while the rest of the site is modernised and restructured. Watch this space!

The CLASSIC (CLASSroom Interactive Computer) or maybe a DECdatasystem 310 is essentially a PDP-8/A installed in a smallish desk, with a built-in RX01 twin 8-inch disk drive. The bundled VT52 terminal is missing from the picture.
