After 10 years since I left DEC and my hands off a VAX machine, thanks to the hobbyist program, and the SIMH emulator, I'm slowly coming back to the good old days.
I don't own any VAX machine, only home-assembled PCs, but as from Yesterday I got my first VAXserver 3900 emulated on one of them.
While I'm a bit rusted after all those years in oblivion, it's amazing to see how, once in the properly conditioning environment, "anciently" learned automatisms come back to me as if they had never left my hands.
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?
