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..

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!

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.
