Members of NYC Resistor have been restoring two PDP-11/34 computers they found in a storage unit. They’ve been tracking their progress with detailed photos, as well as, a video of the boot sequence!
We rescued two PDP-11/34 computers and their associated equipment from a storage unit in the Bronx and have been working on getting them running again. The computing system included multiple RK05 hard drives, two RL02 decpack drives, a TU11 tape drive and tons of media, including “digitized monkey brains“. Read on for more details and the exciting boot sequence.
Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!
