HP C8000
HP rx2600
DEC VT220 :)

zx1 chipset 'obsession'. :oops:
Both are maxed-out in my case: C8000 came maxed-out and rx2600 i maxed by myself. As for C8000: supported video-option is better there - ATI FireGL X3 (for IA64 you're stuck with X1, which occupies two slots :?), processor option is interesting, comparing with IA64 - i have 2x dual-core PA8900 (so 4 cores in total, in rx2600 i have 2 cores) with huge caches, another very cool thing is that i got C8000 with full room of RAM, rare 4 Gb PC2100 modules in 8 slots total - 32 Gb at all, so C8000 is ideal for HPUX`ing ;) For rx2600: integrated ATI 7000 on iLO MP card is a nice bonus (it's supported by OpenVMS DECWindows for example), i have an AGP riser option also: so outstanding graphics for HP-UX (up to ATI FireGL X1), Windows and Linux is there. CPU option is unique of course (EPIC architecture, opportunity to run unique systems like: Windows/IA64 and OpenVMS finally, nice threading and productivity with dual 1.5 Ghz / 6M L3 cache CPUs), room space for RAM is also awesome: 12 slots, up to 24 Gb officially, up to 48 Gb (!) un-officially (should be, i checked by moving 8x 4 Gb sticks from my C8000 there, remaining 4x slots were filled with 2 Gb sticks - and i got 44 Gb working there :P), but for 48 Gb i wasn't be able to find cheap 4 Gb kits at all, so stayed with 2 Gb modules.

Would love a MicroPDP 11/23 (a smaller 11/23 in the same BA23 as the MicroVAX II)...

I dream of running RSX-11 natively on a small compact 80's last generation PDP machine..


RIP Olsen... gone but not forgotten

Thought about it, came near to getting a LSI-11, then discovered emulation. With simh you can play around with a -11 and not have to worry about finding a working disk setup or other bits of old, delicate and/or rare hardware. With SIMH, KLH10 and Hercules I can have a -11, -10 and a 370 in one convenient desktop (or even laptop).

yes SAQ...

But their's nothing like that hum and whir of the boot sequence... and just that ('ol memories) feelin' :)

I'd forgo the VT100 though... (and remember the agony of VT52's at college even in the 90's!..) in favour of emulation at the terminal end!

I have a DEC Personal Workstation 500au running OpenVMS 8.3 and a HP zx6000 (dual Itanium2) that's currently sitting idle wing to being very power hungry and hot running.

Thanks to a colleague, who was getting rid of them, I am the proud owner of a C360 and soon will become an owner of AS1200 (most probably).

So that makes:
Envizex a Series (24 MB RAM),
B132L (FXE, 1GB RAM, 9 GB HDD, HP/UX 11.00),
C360 (FX4, possibly 2GB RAM, 16 GB HDD, TBD),
C3600 x2 (one needing LCD/switch assembly, 32 GB HDD, FX10pro/headless, 1GB/512MB RAM, HP/UX 11i),
A180 (bad I/O board).

DECpc AXP/150 (Qvision 1024, 128 MB RAM, 9GB HDD, additional SCSI and LAN board, OpenVMS 7.1-3),
Alphastation 600 5/333 (Powerstorm 4D60, 1 GB RAM, 4,5+9 GB HDD, 3x DEC Tulip, 2x SE SCSI, Tru64 5.1B4+OpenVMS 7.1-3)
Alphaserver 1200 (TBD).

those Cipher tape units are neat, I've always been impressed by half-inch tape machines.

Currently I have an Alpha PC164 400Mhz 128Mb that was my personal server/firewall for many years. For that it ran NetBSD but I also toyed with OpenVMS and Tru64. It ran everything like a champ except for earlier builds of OpenBSD that would always freeze after a day or so. Later ones didn't seem to do this.

I bought a VAXstation 3100 M38 for $40 on ebay and later sold it for like $120.

Brought home a MicroVAX II one time complete with a QBUS SCSI card. Got bored and eventually scrapped it. Now I realize how big a mistake that was.

Pick up an HP box at a hamfest and didn't realize it ran MPE/IX. Scrapped it too because the guys on the forum were dicks about me not having a license for getting the system/root/whatever password.

Bought a PDP-11/23 not realizing my limits for operating systems. Donated it to a fellow collector.
