A fellow on the cctalk group decided to thin out his herd of Micro vax systems, and sent out some to the list members.

This is the critter that is in my pile now.  I guess I will need to dig up more Sun 411 boxes and scsi drives or converters.

Hopefully will get an HP 16505 soon, and have a PA baby system to keep it company.  Maybe boot it on BSD, or dig up the pile of VAX if that is a supported system.

Modem, keyboard, options.  Are on Graphics daugher card


  1. Dunno much about the VLC, but you could always run VMS on it under the hobbyist license...

  2. They work great as a VMS based X-terminal for logging in to other, more powerful VMS boxes. They will run VMS standalone, but it can get a bit painful at times!

  3. Oh, and I forgot to say, they respond well to retr0bright:

  4. Nice to see the info on the cleaning session. I am going to noodle thru and see if I can find some more info on this and maybe power it on.
