NYC Resistor rescues and restores PDP-11/34 computers from 1978
Members of NYC Resistor have been restoring two PDP-11/34 computers they found in a storage unit. They’ve been tracking their progress with detailed photos, as well as, a video of the boot sequence!
We rescued two PDP-11/34 computers and their associated equipment from a storage unit in the Bronx and have been working on getting them running again. The computing system included multiple RK05 hard drives, two RL02 decpack drives, a TU11 tape drive and tons of media, including “digitized monkey brains“. Read on for more details and the exciting boot sequence.
