Hi all,

Having finally got around to joining in here, I do periodically have hardware to get rid of if anyone out there is interested. As part of what I do (which is mostly high-end VMS related consulting) I periodically come across people chucking out old hardware, so if it's portable I sometimes grab it and pass it on to folks for use as hobbyist systems.

Some of the stuff is destined for the National Museum of Computing at Bletchley Park (home of Colossus and all that), such as my AlphaBook One. It could do with a battery if anyone has one lying around please.

I intend to have a bit of a clearout soon. There's a running AS4100 (2x 533MHz CPUs, 3 and a bit GB memory), some spare AS4100 CPUs (4x 300MHz), some old DEC EISA / ISA cards, some DEC network stuff, some small capacity SCSI discs and a couple of storage shelves, etc. etc.

Some of it may go off to be part of the SIMH system I built for TNMoC (http://retrobeep.no-ip.org/).

Hardware-wise, I've got all three architectures and both FC and SCSI storage. There's a pile of DEChub 900 based stuff too, plus some Windows XP laptops and workstations and a fast HP laser printer.

The latest acquisition is a MACbook Pro (refurb deal from Apple) and I'm really impressed with it so far.

Cheers, Colin.

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.
