whatUseek Directory Site Listings:
A few things I know about LISP Machines - Miscellaneous information and meta-information on LISP Machines, mostly small practical details not covered by other pages, for people who'd like to discover the fantastic lost world of LISP Machines.
Al's Xerox Workstation Collection - While not strictly Lisp Machines, the Alto-descended Xerox workstations (the D-Machines) were the hosts for the Interlisp-D environment. This guy's Xerox Alto Archive has loads of documentation on the Alto and Mesa, its microcode language.
Lisp Machines - Craig Lanning's site running CL-HTTP on a Symbolics NXP1000. Contains his private patches to Symbolics Genera 8.3 as well as two projects, one to develop an X11 compliant server for LispMs and the other, support for Microsoft's SMB/CIFS to share files and printers with LispMs.
SLUG Mailing List - The Symbolics Lisp User's Group mailing list archives and information. SLUG is the ideal mailing list to join if you work with Lisp Machines, especially Symbolics ones. Many Lisp hackers still subscribe, including current and ex-employees of the company, and your technical and historical questions are quickly answered.
Symbolics Lisp Machine Museum - Ralf Möller's extensive collection of Symbolics LispM information, including hardware photos, exhibitions of both system and application software (including screen captures!), pointers (locatives?) to other online collections, some assorted information on competitive LispM systems, and some useful hacks for Genera (including a mouse acceleration hack). Continually growing with new exhibits and more detail.
Symbolics Technology, Inc. - Symbolics officially died when it went bankrupt in the mid-90s, but its assets were bought and reformed into Symbolics Technologies, which continues support and consulting for existing users as well as development of newer versions of Symbolics software. They are currently selling OpenGenera 2.0, which is a LispM running on a DEC Alpha under Digital Unix. They will also sell you hardware and software, if you know who to ask.
TI S1500 and Explorer Information - Information on the TI S1500 Unix machine and its sibling the TI Explorer Lisp Machine.
The Lisp Machine: Noble Experiment Or Fabulous Failure? - A draft of a paper by P. T. Withington investigating the Lisp Machine and how it both succeeded and failed in the face of the RISC workstation revolution. Also a good introduction to what a Lisp Machine is and why they were invented.
The Online Symbolics Museum - RWK's (Bob Kerns) aging online museum dedicated to everything Symbolics. It even has information on the LispMs and software that Symbolics produced.
The Seasonal Lisp Machine - Photos of Shriram Krishnamurthi's TI Explorer decorated for the holidays.
The Symbolics Virtual Lisp Machine - The extended abstract of an unpublished paper (the header is a fib, it was pulled at the last minute) on the design and implementation of the Symbolics VLM, a virtual machine implementing the Symbolics Ivory architecture on the DEC Alpha systems.
Xerox to Symbolics Mouse Conversion - A document describing and giving schematics for converting a Xerox optical mouse for use with a Symbolics LispM. More useful today for Symbolics users who need technical information on their mouse connector and how to go about attaching other pointing devices in its place.
