Worked in Digital Ayr plant from 1977 until Compaq shut it. Left HP in Erskine in 2005 for Cardiff. Now working on the OS that is second best to VMS, Linux.
Got a 433au workstation with a micky mouse web site using hobbyist kit and the ECR6 DECthreads http server.
A lot of people know it as the OSU HTTPD Server originated by David Jones. It's the one I first used, but I've migrated to WASD (Mark Davis, Australia) and Apache. SSL works better than with OSU. Several of my scripts still use the OSU htbin interface!.
There's some good documentation on the different OpenVMS Web Servers in "OpenVMS with Apache, OSU, and WASD" by Alan Winston.
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?
