I agree 100%...but until recently I didn't have another machine
(well, I had machines, but not enough electricity to run them; my
house is maxed-out) to run a crash-n-burn load on. As I mentioned
earlier, the 3500 I just picked up will do just that. I intend to
track -current there.
I trust Ragge and the other VAX hackers will get this straigtened
out...I think (just by watching what's been going on here) that
they're having a hard time due to lack of feedback by the user
community. I hope to help change that soon.
I already have a SUP server on my network set up to handle union
mounts for multi-architecture compilation. All I need is another
evening to yank the BA213 out of its plastic shell antd throw it into
a rack, then redistribute some UPS load.
