	BTW, have you tried the tape drives, or the external drive you got
from me yet?

Umm, I think I may have left tapes in them too. Probably could just wipe
those, unless you find some useful info... We don't have any TK-- drives in
service here anymore.

! ok, i've got my vt420 hooked into the console of the CMD.  
! that's neat.  how
! many SCSI cards have serial consoles?  i bet we could count 
! them on one hand. :)
! anyway, i'm doing a format, a qualify and then a final 
! format.  if i disk makes
! it all the way through a qualify it's good? i've got some 
! disks here that are
! a little flaky and have some bad spots.  got them hooked up 
! to the 3100/76 at
! one point to try the TEST 75 stuff to format them, but they 
! never made it all
! the way through.  maybe i should break that thing out and 
! start again with doing
! that to see what i can come up with.
! but anyway, if a disk makes it through a qualify run, can i 
! trust it?  it seems
! to be doing read then write to the entire disk, so it seems 
! like a fairly
! comprehensive test to me.
! cheers,
