Battle Royale

Just saw this film and was enthralled... it is probably (although need time to absorb it) one of the best films I have ever seen... what a fantastic film. Googling "Battle Royale" I see it is available in Manga... it's a word have seen a lot without understanding much about it... but readi...

Re: DEC Price List from 1991

Thanks SMJ..... I'm Ed Austin the author, Jim took over from me when I finished Uni and needed further hosting so it moved stateside... I wrote it whilst I were a Postgrad at Liverpool Uni on an M.Sc. Computer Science (M.S. in US) back in 1994, time flies. At the time in my Dorm room I had a VS2000 ...

Re: DEC Price List from 1991

Not sure why I wrote "better in the VS" as rereading it I realized I had made a mistake :) Did the 3100/9X ever come in a VAXstation configuration? Back in '97 I supported one (MV 3100/95) that served 50+ users at a Food Companies HQ in Victoria BC (anybody local will know which one), they...

Re: DEC Price List from 1991

Wasn't the 3100/76 only available as a MicroVAX? If so would explain the price difference. As far as I can recall the only differences between VS and MV of the same model were VMS licencing (MV > users), Nameplate, video card (better in the VS) and a much bigger price tag for the MV? It has been twe...

Re: Smallest HPUX/OpenVMS System Ever?

Had a VS2000 (and a MVII) at Uni (1995... the only student running a VAX outside the computer centre... ran batch jobs for friends ;) ) and even then the RD53/RD54 were rare. Nowadays an RD54 will set you back $500++ they are so rare, and the tape stuff tqk50???? was limited SCSI remember back in '9...

Re: VMS End of life

A sad day... Spent many an all-nighter back in 1996 optimizing a 3100/90 (or 95/98?) on behalf at the Thrifty Foods HQ in Victoria, BC... happy days. Before that at Liverpool Uni.... a year of VMS, and even before that three years of VMS, RSX-11 and RT-11..... back in the early 90's they were ancien...

Buying a MicroPDP-11

Any advice on a buying a MicroPDP-11 in working order in the UK? It seems quite impossible now to find one anywhere. I don't care if it is a 11/23, 11/73 or 11 anything in fact, as long as it can run RSTS/E. Is the BA23 the smallest case available for the machine as well? Funny, on eBay I can always...

Re: Questions About My New Kit: Sun Fire T2000

The V210 (after picl runs on Solaris or the RHEL extensions on RHEL/CentOS) is super quiet, the V100 is quieter, the V120 (with the SCSI) maybe in-between. All three are significantly quieter than a T1000, in fact the V100 is quiet enough to be used under a desk. I could never live with a T1000 in t...

Re: Just went mad and got a DL560 from eBay...

Just saw this better late than never... but for anyone else... CentOS or RHEL is the only real OS for this box due to the fact that the RHEL extensions for power management manage the fans superbly (and make the machine pretty quiet). I suspect any other Linux Derivative would not have these Redhat ...

Re: What HP/DEC/Compaq do we have.

with a QBUS SCSI card Oh my.... that was my "dream" card back in '95 for the uVAXII I had (in a BA23). So expensive then.. I guess now impossible to come by? AFAIK it was the only way to extend the disks in the machine beyond low capacity MFM... may be mistaken here but it has been 17 yea...

Re: Smallest HPUX/OpenVMS System Ever?

Now my first VAX back in student accommodation at University back in 1995 was a MicroVAX 2000, uVAXII and a VS 3100/38. Even then they were obsolete and the University CAD/CAM lab donated them to me.. I must have been the only guy in the UK with a VAX cluster in his dorm room....didn't impress the l...
