I didn't notice this forum when I registered with the site, better late than never!
I am a retired systems programmer, having used primarily DEC equipment, and later various PC's and PC servers (Proliant's). I was also the network administrator and security administrator (talk about all of your eggs in one basket...) at most of the places I've worked.
I did a lot of work with microprocessors early on, mostly in embedded systems, later building myself new personal computers (before THE PC came along).
I started with DEC PDP-11's in 1980, assembled for myself an 11/03 in a VT103 with floppies, etc. in 1981 - no big task, purchased a RT-11 license from my employer (a DEC OEM) and have been a diehard DECCie ever since. I got into VAXen in early 1982 on an 11/780 and wanted some kind, ANY KIND, of VAX for years.
I worked with banking systems (Remittance processing) and later with SCADA on a natural gas pipeline. I've collected some systems since retiring.

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?
