So I went down to Columbia yesterday about that infovax posting, and
came home with a haul.

Added to my collection:
  VAX 4000/200 with 32 megs of memory, FOUR (count 'em) SCSI controllers
(CMD CQD443x2, CQD423, CQD223), just over 100 Gig of differential SCSI
disks, KLESI, QT14, and LPV11.
  VAXStation 4000/60 (internals not probed yet)
  MicroVAX 3800 in a BA215, but it has a power issue.

So: I don't have any PERTEC or LESI tapes, so I have for grabs a KLESI
and QT14. I don't see myself attaching any printers, either, so the
LPV11 can go if someone would like it.

Also, I'd like to get a pointer or two from anybody familiar with the
BA215 - the power plug, located at the bottom left of the front panel -
it's keyed, but other than that, is it wired the same as a standard
plug? We can't seem to get this one to power up. We put power to the
device, then flip the "on" switch, and nothing happens. The circuit
breakers on both PS seem to be non-tripped. Is there any reasonably easy
way to take this box apart, or is there something obvious I'm missing?
