Can't post in the Minicomputer forum

I was curious as to how one goes about posting in the minicomputer forum. Not that I own or have access to a mini, but when I select minicomputer from the Applefritter homepage, it tells me that there is no content. Further, there is no provision for creating content.

Like I said, I do not own or have access to a minicomputer, but if one ever became available, and I could afford it, I would not hesitate to purchase it. I've always kind of fancied having my very own DEC minicomputer.

Ah, dare to dream...

I am a CRAY person, myself. I would like nothing better than to have a CRAY-2 humming and giving off that cool light as the flourinert flows through the veins of that impressive little mini.

There is no minicomputer foru

There is no minicomputer forum. That's a different part of the site, for spec sheets and such. It looks like nobody has submitted anything there yet.

The active forums you can post in can be accessed by clicking on the Forums link from the upper-right navbar.

How does one go about submitting material for that area?

Here's some pics of what I'd like to have humming away in my basement:

The image on the left is a PDP-8i and the one on the right is just a PDP-8.

I was thinking that the empty shell of a PDP-8 would make a wonderful case for an Apple II cluster (Applecrate). You could probably fit a hundred or so Apple II boards in one of these cases.

You could really polish things off by using an actual DEC video terminal for input/output on the Apple II cluster.
