I can't resist this one....(:+}}... I ran a Model 80 with AIX 1 from 1988
through 2000, with nary a burp, except for an HD that dived after about 5
years. Dang, them PS/2 Model 80's are indestructible, just like Olden
VAXentoyz.....(:+\\...... The machine in question is still running in my
basement, after I bought it from our surplus for 5 buckeroos, alongside
the MVII critters.....(:+}}....
