Hi all,

I'm a hobbyist based in Cumbria, UK.
In the past I used to work on contract for DEC, using VMS and VMS/ELN on various projects large and small, in Germany, France and the US.

I have a selection of old VAX and Alpha boxes at home that have run VMS/Unix and Linux in the past and I am now (slowly) getting them back up and running on VMS.

My interests are in Internet technology, networking and software development, including c, c++, perl, php in no particular order.

I'm also looking into the possibility of running VMS on Itanium/Integrity from home so that I can try porting some of the VMS programs I have developed.

I have read that Itanium VMS is covered on the Hobbyist licence, but there is very little detail at the Hobbyist website.

Does anyone have a lead on where to get the VMS 8.2-1 images for Integrity that can be used with Hobbyist licences?
I've been quoted over 400 for the media kit from a UK supplier.

All the best
JC.

Getting media is a constant problem for VMS hobbyists.
Most people borrow from someone they know or where they work. There are kits for alpha and VAX layered products available for download.

Do you have an hp Integrity system just waiting to load VMS on ?

Hi,

Not yet, but hopefully soon.
Do you have Integrity running on the hobbyist programme?

Cheers
John.

At one time, didn't this web site have a job board? I would love to use my legacy skills one last time in my career.

New Hobbyist PAKs for VAX/VMS are no longer available according to reports. Only commercial licenses are reported to be for sale from HPE

Hi all, haven't been here in years. Good to see it is all there still. I'm looking around at the forum to stop/start msipcap - 'could not be stopped' - for now. I'll shutdown FreeA
