Robert, I forgot to cc my reply to the others on the PUPS mailing list.
Would anybody in the US be able to look at Robert's tapes to see if we
can recover System III? John Holden just donated System V to the PUPS
archive, so System III would also be a good addition.

Please email to Robert & the mailing list if you are willing to look at
the tapes.

Thanks in advance,
