Re: VAXstation VLC, anyone?
Quite a few people wrote to me offering a VLC, and for that I am grateful.
I should mention why I'm looking for it just in case anyone has issues
about what will eventually happen with it.
I got an offer for indefinite power and bandwidth for a 1U machine. While
a VLC isn't very fast in general, it's the only VAX I know of which could
possibly fit in a 1U case. I've never heard of anything like a 1U VAX, so
I thought this would be an excellent opportunity to have a VAX for testing
NetBSD and for occasional compiling.
I'll be using this with a SCSI-IDE adapter and a 32 gig CompactFlash card,
so I think it'll be extremely reliable.
I've already made a 1U Amiga:
So if you're Ok with the idea of the machine being gutted to build a 1U
VAX, I can assure you it'll get very good use.
