It stores it on my webserver in SIMH format. The webserver is also retro,
it is a 486/66 I upgraded to 133 with 64MB ram 40GB disk.
The PDP-8/E is interfaced to the parallel port of the PC using a custom card
I made that allows remote control of front panel functions and databreak
access to memory. I will need to get a laptop setup to control it.
