Hi all,

I am a long time business application developer using COBOL and DCL on OpenVMS, first on VAX then Alpha. I have an Alpha AS800 I tinkered with a few years ago. Trying to get it going again to help keep the rust off my developer skills. VMS is going away in the day-job after about 35 years, so I'll need something to tinker with after that. Also looking at Alpha emulation as a way of Hobbying.

Aside from a brief period of 13 years where I did both VMS (Alpha) and O/S400 (IBM iSeries), I've always worked with VMS, as far back as college, DCL skills were learned mostly on-the-job so I am by NO means, a system VMS administrator or Alpha hardware guy, but with some direction I can typically jump in and get the task done.

Thanks to all who brought this community platform together.

John, Nashville TN

New Hobbyist PAKs for VAX/VMS are no longer available according to reports. Only commercial licenses are reported to be for sale from HPE

Hi all, haven't been here in years. Good to see it is all there still. I'm looking around at the forum to stop/start msipcap - 'could not be stopped' - for now. I'll shutdown FreeA
