Well I've probably got a dozen vaxen that could be put to this task (/90 x
2, /60 x 2, /700a x 2, /100, /vlc x 8) but it seems like it would be
impossible to set up over the wire. There is also the issue of power (my
wife would have some words to say about firing up the whole House of VAX
:-) There is the firewall issue of course however I can finesse that if
you're using TCP and we can pick a port to reverse map over to the VAX.
