What is that wire going into the keyboard between CTRL and =E2=86=90 ?

Touch screens are neat.  I used them when I worked on the PLATO
Computer Aided Instruction system for the University of Illinois,
Chicago Medical Center.

I wonder what ever became of Plato?

Dan, I enlarged the system photo to 400%, and all I can see between the
right Ctrl key and the left arrow key is the normal plastic keyboard
case -- no wire (maybe my eyes are getting too old).  Now, at the
bottom of the keyboard between the right arrow key and the keypad 0 is
the system end of the keyboard cable -- but that's just resting against
the bottom edge of the keyboard case.

It's a small world -- I once owned the rx/uia/cerl account (for the
non-PLATO folks, uia meant "University of Illinois Author", and CERL
was the Computer-based Education Research Laboratory).

And if I said, "Bring on the Soul Snarf!", would you know what I was
referencing?

Corrrect; my mistake.  Wrong location.  I see how that could be the
PS/2 plug end of the keyboard cable.

Sorry, no; what does it mean?  I must have been too busy playing with
executive level games and columns, available only to Plato U. of
Illinois employees. <snicker, wink>

Yup, it predated e-mail and newsgroups.  I developed an e-mail
freindship with "Joie de vivre," who died of lung cancer before I was
able  to meet her.

I'll contact that web site and contribute my part to the history of
Plato.

As you would expect, each keyboard mates with one of the 5251 displays. It's easy to tell which display was the system console (the badly burned-in one on top) and which was the primary application console (the pretty badly burned-in one on the bottom). The one in the middle that has no visible burn-in probably saw very little use. I don't think that the value of the system will improve very much in another 10 to 20 years like the seller hopes, but everyone is entitled to dream. If anyone was interested in a set of S/36 manuals, this auction looks like a good bet, you might get a complete set and a few spares. A small bid will probably win, then you have the seller ship you all of the manuals via Media Mail, and then the seller could do as he liked with the "heavy metal" (of course, you'd have to make sure that the seller would go along with this scheme in advance).
