This web page contains a number of documents of relevance to those interested in the Digital Equipment Corporation's PDP-8 minicomputer. Documents cover pdp-8 hardware, software, and supporting materials. This web page is maintained by Kevin McQuiggin, mcquiggi@sfu.ca.

The documents consist of scanned sets of images in TIFF format. They were created by David Gesswein djg@drs-esg.com. Other scans have been contributed by Doug Coward, dcoward@pressstart.com.

FOCAL 69 is made available courtesy of DEC. It's a copy of the package distributed with Bob Supnik's pdp-8 simulator, made available here in both RIM and text formats for your convenience.

The software utilities rim and send were written by Kevin McQuiggin. They are basic but they work for me. Consider them "alpha" quality!

Highgate is a FreeBSD machine. It's a Pentium 133 MHz box with 32 MB RAM and 6.6 GB HD space. The machine is located in the Telematics Lab at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada.

Utilities are available from FFII (Forderverein fur eine Freie Informationelle Infrastruktur) which will convert the grouped TIFF files on this site to PDF format! These utilities are available here

Web server access statistics are now available:

Kevin's wish list contains a list of hardware, software, and documentation that I'm currently looking for!
