      I visited Claude several years ago specifically to copy the ROMs in the MCB8 system (it's actually pictured in his Reckoner article) and there were no boards in it then. At that time he said that he had lent the boards to someone. Maybe when they never came back, he called them stolen. Maybe he just forgot ...

      Will, this was the time frame when I was working with RCSRI and the weasel to try to find a home for the Burroughs. Might have even been pre-MARCH timeframe?
