I could easily get jealous here.

I have a DECmate-II and two DECmate-IIIs in store waiting for time to get
them going. At least the -8A ran last time it was turned on.

Three each of -350s and -380s waiting for time...

Only an 11/83 in a BA213 case running RT-11.


A uVAX-II in a BA123 (formally a console for an 8800) and a 3600. These
will be "upgraded" to BSD real soon now (just waiting for me to find the
time - there's a theme here...)


Just an XL366 and XL300 for doing real work.

Lust after this.

But not as much as the Epson.

I won't mention the SGI crimson that I use as an X terminal and for
debugging SCSI problems :-)
