reporter at a major Trenton paper (The Trentonian) in the early 1970s.
Just last week, four decades later, she was tapped by them again to do
some writing. Also, the only nontechnical job I've ever had was
delivering that very newspaper around my apartment complex in
Mercerville when I was ~13 in the early 1980s.
Another tie-in...On the way out of VCF-E, I stopped and visited one
of my mother's journalism mentors, a neat old guy named Jack Knarr who I
haven't seen since I could barely walk, and he gave me some machines. I
came out of his storage locker with an Osborne 1, an Osborne Vixen, a
Teleray, and some other fun stuff.
(now it'd just figure if that PDP-11/44 came from a newspaper other
than The Trentonian, but it's one of the two biggies in Trenton)

that he can get in ? Last time I was there, there was no easy way to get
into the H building, much less with a heavy forklift. Or are they finished
making the ramp ?

Worst case, he'll bring it into the adjacent H-section, where there is a loading ramp. A pallet jack would do the final mile.
