@MMcM, in case you're still reading this thread: would you allow us to use your photos for the Deskthority wiki?

We don't get to see these keyboards too often. :)

It's pretty embarrassing to be taking so long to answer. Sorry.

Yes, of course, that's fine.

Yes. TK was Bunnie's thesis advisor, so it seemed appropriate.

Wow, really interesting! Thanks MMcM, XMIT & everyone for this thread. :-)

I was on a different continent at the time; but it reminded me I learned how LISP worked by reading a PDP-1 assembly listing I found somewhere in the Uni of Qld Hawken engineering library over a break (maybe Christmas / after exams?) and how CAR/CADR made sense...

We made do with Lear-Siegler ADM-3A and ASR-33 & 43 TTY terminals though -- with somewhat more minimal keyboards!
