might be shooting myself in the foot here but I'm clearing out my attic and, as much as I'd like to keep them, I've a box of DEC Professional, VAX Professional magazines, various TKs ( including two labeled BASIC 4.0 and a MV Cust Diags ), VAX Basic orange book, and a MicroVAX II in the BA123 case. couple of books too, Mastering VMS, Shah's VAXCluster book, PDP11 Assembler, a badly beaten VAX Architecture book.
the MVII comes with an Einstien board so it's got 13 mg main memory I think, from memory.
I'm never gonna get back into using any of this, anyone wants to make an offer and they're yours. Fair weight to the lot with the MVII in there, so collection is probably the best way, I'm top end of essex up near sudbury in the UK, so hopefully there's an Essex LUG or similar.
tears in my eyes writing this, VMS set me up for everything I've done since, but it's sitting here rotting to be honest :-(

malmberg December 12 2017 HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
DoeveR August 07 2017 Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?
