If images don't display

The image chooser dialog is started by clicking on the button for the device you wish to access. It selects what image to copy onto or save from the mass storage devices available. This is equivalent to putting a new disk into the drive which is how you would do it if operating the PDP-8 directly.

If you use the popup action on the button (right mouse button under Microsoft windows) you will get the device popup menu to perform operations on that device.

Feel free to contact me, David Gesswein djg@pdp8online.com with any questions, comments on the web site, or if you have related equipment, documentation, software etc. you are willing to part with.  I am interested in anything PDP-8 related, computers, peripherals used with them, DEC or third party, or documentation.
