I'm wondering if I should get an RA60 drive some time. The idea
of removeable hard drives is kind of cool, but I don't want to
put up yet another machine, so this one might just fit due to its
easy rack-mountable "drawer" style. What is it like, is it as
heavy as the RA8x?
Also, I have a huge DataProducts printer to go with the DMB32
card, this one actually has DataProducts, Centronics, and
RS232 interface. Anyone have a dataproducts cable? On the
VAX it looks like a big D-shaped connector with two rows of
pins (actually it's female at the side of the VAX). On the
printer it looks like a 3-row female D connector, like the
KLESI. Which is weird.
If someone has urgent need for this printer I might be convinceable
to give it away sooner rather than later. Even though my
wife likes it (!) and I think it's a cute fast type-machine, I
think we won't have room for it. Do you know if that huge
tracktor paper is still available for sale somewhere? Anyway,
I'll make my announcement sometime at the end of this winter
for a bunch of good big iron stuff available in Indianapolis.
