A nice little hobbyist machine - PWS500au with:
- 3x 9GB discs as JBODs off a 3 channel SWXCR (+ a spare SWXCR)
- extra 10/100 ethenet
- 2x ELSA Gloria Synergy (runs dual monitor with the Xinerama extension for DECwindows/Motif)
- around 500MB memory (made up of 3 pairs of DIMMs of varying sizes)
- TDK CD/DVD burner (works with VMS copy/record)


There's some DS10 / DS10L memory (512MB made up of 2x 256MB options = 4 x 128MB DIMMs in total.

There might be some other stuff (plastic brick style discs, mostly 18GB and 36GB, BA356 storage shelf, etc.) as well, depends what I have left from a big clear-out.

Best collected. I don't want (or have time for) the hassle of arranging shipping.

Located in Bristol UK. Best to call my office number weekdays if you're interested: +44 117 904 8209

Cheers, Colin.

No more VAX hobbyist licenses. Community licenses for Alpha/IA64/X86_64 VMS Software Inc. Commercial VMS software licenses for VAX available from HPE.

Just re-visiting.. No more hobbyist licenses? Is that from vmssoftware.com, no 'community' licenses?

I recall that the disks failed on the public access VMS systems that included Fafner

Anyone know what happened to FAFNER.DYNDS.ORG? I had a hobbyist account here but can longer access the site.

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.

Eisner, which is currently being moved, got an SSH update and the keys were updated to more modern encryption standards.
