The program which was being entered in the previous picture has successfully printed JASON. The first attempt had an error in entry which could be the computer being difficult or an entry error. After it was corrected the program worked.
For demonstration I had a program running on the PDP-8 which punched what people typed as block letters on paper tape which they could take as a souvenir. A sample is lying on the teletype.
Feel free to contact me, David Gesswein firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
