The Halls of SK
GamesHave you ever been eaten by a Grue? Then you've played Zork. But have you ever been trapped in a maze of cubicles? Then you need to play The Halls of ZK. A fun twist on the text adventure games where you get to wander the hallowed halls of Digital Equipment's ZK facility, the home of OpenVMS.

While Digital and ZK are no more, you can still relive the adventure of being there and old-school-cool games. If you don't have an OpenVMS system handy, you can even play it on-line. Source code is available for the extra adventurous, but don't use it to cheat!

Go here to The Halls of ZK and have fun!

Before the VAX and VMS - The PDP-1
In 1959, the PDP-1 made it's debut. It was the beginning of great things. And after watching the video, it's obvious that the PDP-1 monitor was the inspiration of the DECUS Logo. If you ever are in the area of Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California, maybe you can drop by and see it.

OpenVMS Boot Camp Early Bird Registration
MembersConnect Worldwide has extended the early -bird registration deadline for the OpenVMS Boot Camp! Sounds like many of our European friends tend to have holidays about this time, so they didn't want anyone to miss it.

The OpenVMS Boot Camp features a variety of Keynotes:

The Future of VSI Multi-Vendor Storages
Business Value of VMS
VSI ISV Partner Solution
VIS - Company Strategy and Directions
New VSI TCP/IP
VSI Roadmaps
VSI Engineering Panel

In addition, there are over 50 break-out sessions, so there should be lots of interesting information to be found. I wonder if there will be a VMS Magic session?

Early-bird registration is $1,295 and you can register at OpenVMS Boot Camp 2016 home page.

OpenVMS Alpha Field Test
SoftwareFor those that are still running Alpha's, there's good news. You're still loved! VMS Software has announced a evaluation kit for VMS V8.4-2 for all Alpha platforms. The kit comes with a free license good until September 30, 2016, after which you will have to use your real licenses or a Hobbyist license.

If you don't have an existing VMS 8.3 or later Alpha's running OpenVMS, this evaluation kit isn't for you, since it will only upgrade these systems. You can't install it from scratch.

Also note that Layered Products may not install on this version of OpenVMS, since they check for the "HP" producer, and this installation has a producer of "VSI". See the release notes for hints that may help with some of these issues,

For complete information, and to register, check out VMS Software's web site at http://vmssoftware.com/alpha/.

A couple of DS20s need a home
HardwareI have a couple of DS20s that my last employer abandoned. They were configured in a cluster on a san and have fiber cards installed. I bought some new (second hand) disks on ebay but don't have the time to put together. I am in CT but can travel some bit to a good home. I also have some distributions and manuals.

OpenVMS License Registration Move
SoftwareDue to the many happenings at OpenVMS.org, mainly being that it's down for maintenance, refreshing, revamping, rehosting, and such, the OpenVMS Hobbyist License Registration has changed locations. Now, it's being fully hosted on HP's servers for extra convenience.

You can get your licenses at HP's OpenVMS Hobbyist Registration page.

We hope that OpenVMS.org will be back better than ever soon!

PDP-8 Rescue Road Trip
In July of 1996, John Wisniewski, Pat Jankowiak, and David Cathey made a road trip to St. Louis to recover a collection of PDP-8 systems and other hardware. This is the story of the trip. While this isn't OpenVMS related, it is showing dedication to Digital Equipment Corporation and the durability of the hardware they made.

There is life after OpenVMS
NewsSaw a reference to somone many in the OpenVMS community should know: Rich Marcello. Rich was common at many DECUS events and was the Vice President of Business Critical Systems. So what's he been up to lately?

It was a surprise to me, that Rich is also an accomplished musician and author. Not something I ever realized during those late evenings at DECUS talking technology with the VP's. You can check out some of his music on SoundCloud at https://soundcloud.com/Marcellorich and it's very impressive work. He's go a new book coming out next year, so that will be worth a look.

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.

lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
