Some of my ND projects beside this wiki

I made a brief showing at a local lan, Frostbyte 2013, with some of my computers, among other a ND-110 with a notis terminal.

Got some more documentation and software during spring 2016, among other things several versions of SINTRAN III and OWS-related stuff.

Restoration notes

  • Many fasteners are DZUS quarter turn quick lock. One source of these are Aeromateriel
