Just noticed these links on the site, but apparently
someone over in the Ukraine has put together adapters which allow for the
use of IDE controllers and drives in Q-bus and Unibus systems.  I know the
idea was talked about some time back, but it's pretty nifty that such a
thing actually exists now.

Looks like it only supports PIO access, and would require special drivers
since you wouldn't be speaking MSCP or TMSCP to the IDE devices.  But hey,
just think of how much nicer it would be to have a few gigs of cheap
storage available on your VAXen?

The US mirror is here: 
The original site seems to be down.
