day and I hope the teltype isn't going to be too difficult so what else
would MARCH desire someone look at?
You were interested in having more done with the 11/20. You were going to
do the foam but was anyone else planning to work on it further? If nobody
else is I can dig up manuals to check it out though since I'm not that
familiar with 11's it will be learning for me also.
I can also do more card testing on the 8/E though I think the backplanes
will be easier if they go home unless you have a place to wash them and
air compressor to blow the gunk out. Replating the tin may be needed to
have long term reliability.
Are there other things that I should plan to look at? Proper prep
makes it go better.
