== MC configuration ==
So I'm trying to work out MC's configuration. (I know, I know, I could look in CONFIG >, but I'm lazy.) Here's what I remember/can work out:
* 8 [[MF10]]'s
* (later) An Ampex? 'external' memory box was added
* 3 [[RP04]]'s
* So, therefore, some sort of MASSBUS controller, but since it was a KL10 Model A, not an [[RH20]]; probably an [[RH10]]
* That would have needed a [[DF10]]
* A [[TM10]] of some sort; dunno if that had a separate DF10, or shared the one the RH10 used
* Some sort of high-end DEC magtape drive
* A [[DL10]]
* Later, first one, and then a second Trident drive, attached to the DL10 PDP-11
* The front-end -11 had a bunch of serial lines, probably a [[DH11]]
* CHAOSNET eventually on the DL10 PDP-11
* I'm not sure why they initially acquired the DL10+PDP-11 (i.e. what it did to begin with); probably more serial lines
Well, that's a start. [[User:Jnc|Jnc]] ([[User talk:Jnc|talk]]) 17:09, 12 April 2021 (CEST)
: I have tried to summarize changes to CONFIG > for all machines over the years: https://github.com/PDP-10/its/issues/1168
: Most of what you wrote seems spot on.  I can see there was a third T-300.  Yes, initially the DL10 front end was just a normal DC76 handling terminals. [[User:Larsbrinkhoff|Larsbrinkhoff]] ([[User talk:Larsbrinkhoff|talk]]) 17:29, 12 April 2021 (CEST)
: Where is CONFIG > now? I looked [https://github.com/PDP-10/its/tree/master/src/system here] but it doesn't seem to be there. [[User:Jnc|Jnc]] ([[User talk:Jnc|talk]]) 17:47, 12 April 2021 (CEST)
