I've worked on DEC equipment since 1972. First system was a DEC PDP-8. Since then I've gone up through the numbers of
PDP's : 8-9-10-11-12-14-15-16 (Yes there were PDP 14's and 16's - Industrial controllers).
Then in 1980 I got a VAX 11/780. 6 of them to be exact.
I maintained a seismic data processing center with the VAXes pulling data off of tri-density Telex tape units and sending the data to FPS-100's and Varian plotters. Wuff-Wuff-Wuff...feel all that raw i/o crunching power !!!
I'm on the equipment maintenance side of things. I program when I have to or when I think I can make it work better.
My current employer thinks my time would be better spent learning about HP-UX and the boxes it runs on instead of OpenVMS. I have the OpenVMS
CSE and the HP-UX CSA certs.
I also like turning old VAX VLC boxes into interesting cases. Current case involves using a Apple iMAC case and a LCD display. Real trick is converting the RGB synch on green to a real VGA output for the LCD screen. LM1881 circuit seems to work so far. I also have a AXPPCI SBC
VAX 3100-40 & Alpha 400/266. OpenVMS 7.3, VMS 5.5, and Tru64 and RH linux are up at one time or another.

Eisner was upgraded to the current Multinet Release. As part of that a new host key was generated. The old key was incompatible with newer Linux.

ssh to eisner is now giving (on linux) "WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!" , Has the server key in fact changed ?

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.
