[gone] Several VAXstation 100 terminals for free-take-it-away

Unread postby ClassicHasClass » Sun Mar 05, 2017 2:48 pm

These monsters are too big to ship, and I have no way of testing them, but they need to be gone. I got a number of them as part of a estate cleanout. The 100 is not a true VAXstation; it's more of a overgrown graphics terminal that connects over Unibus. If you want a couple, notify me THIS WEEK and make arrangements for local pickup (greater Los Angeles area). Units that are not spoken for will be dragged to the recycler this weekend.

Have you posted to cctalk? That strikes me as being a group more interested in real rarities (the CHM doesn't even list a VS100 in its catalog).

Is it just the VS100 box, or do you also have the UNIBUS cards and fiber optic cables? I might make the trip if the latter are present - I'm curious how many hours it would take an 11/730 to put up a login box...

I'm pretty sure they're just the boxes. I do have some cables with them, but I don't know if they're fibre, and I don't recall getting any cards.

Two, in the end (I thought three or four, but I forgot the machine on the same type of pedestal next to it was actually a PRO 380). Jim S from cctalk is coming to collect them on Saturday for his group.

Cool, good job Jim.

And when you're ready for the Pro 380 to find a new home, you know how to reach me. ;)

Actually, I'm thinking I'll keep that *one* as a spare. I have a PRO 380 in the house that allegedly boots Venix but I need to build it a cable (Mac video cables are the wrong gender). I do have a VR201 and an LK201AA, and the unit powers up and makes happy noises and the LEDs just say "no monitor" so I bet it works. The pedestal PRO 380 will be my hedge bet.

There are several spare 380s, two Rainbow 100s and a DECmate II, and Jim says he wants those also, so he's welcome. All that is left is the RL02 and the big PDP, which I might keep as a conversation piece.

Jim got the lot yesterday. We also found a big box of paper tapes and diskpak HEPA filters. Good haul for them, and my storage unit is a lot emptier. :)

Meanwhile, I have a cable on order for that PRO 380.

They also made a suggestion about the PDP-11/44 I have mouldering in there ...

Classic I can say from experience letting go of stuff lying around in storage can be a hard but rewarding thing. Even if you don't make or lose money on them - you know you're letting go of stuff someone will put to use.
