I believe that I was the first to port Unix (V6) to the 11/34 in
Australia; there should be a paper that I wrote, somewhere in the
archives. I was not aware of any prior work at the time, although
subsequently a couple of bods came out to say that they'd beaten me to it
(then why didn't they publish?).
In the words of the inimitable Tom Lehrer: "I publish first!".
