Hi there!
   I would be interested in the AIX media, and any AIX-related discs.

   I am also keenly interested in the 9-tracks, and potentially newer tape cartridges if it's IBM stuff.

Thank you!

No one has asked for them yet. Some were in very poor shape, broken reels with tape falling off, so I discarded those. On others the reels are intact and the tape has not been exposed. Any info on these is supposed to be scrubbed, since the backups contain proprietary info.

Have you had interest in the 9-track tapes as yet? I would coordinate (contribute to postage) with someone so they can be saved and inspected.
