Sadly the SIMH Alpha simulator only has the CPU implemented, but none of the rest of the hardware required, as far as I know, so there's no way (yet) to run OpenVMS on it. Some people report some success running es40 (I haven't been one of the lucky ones though), check out the Emulated Alpha subforums.

QEMU also claims support for the Alpha processor. I am not sure if anyone has attempted a VMS boot with it.

No more VAX hobbyist licenses. Community licenses for Alpha/IA64/X86_64 VMS Software Inc. Commercial VMS software licenses for VAX available from HPE.

Just re-visiting.. No more hobbyist licenses? Is that from vmssoftware.com, no 'community' licenses?

I recall that the disks failed on the public access VMS systems that included Fafner

Anyone know what happened to FAFNER.DYNDS.ORG? I had a hobbyist account here but can longer access the site.

At one time, didn't this web site have a job board? I would love to use my legacy skills one last time in my career.

Eisner, which is currently being moved, got an SSH update and the keys were updated to more modern encryption standards.
