      I may have missed a reference in the earlier posts, but since this
      equipment was donated directly by the original user, I would set a high
      priority on getting a full description of how the system was chosen,
      configured and used from the donor. In addition, an oral history might
      make an interesting addition to the exhibit.

      Context is what makes this machine so interesting, so don't miss the
      opportunity to get information directly from the donor. Since he states
      that he wanted to find a good home for the system, I expect he might be
      very interested in the development of the exhibit and a link to Herb's
      work-in-progress website.
