Last call before the landfill - I need $5 (what I gave for it) plus shipping
(about 35 / 40 lbs) for the IBM 6157 and a box full (over 60) DC-300 tapes.
All are in good shape but obviously used. I'm at zip 42726 in the event
someone wants to check shipping, or you can email me and include your zip
and I can calculate it. Use residential or not as applicable and "one time
pickup" if calc'ing UPS as I don't have a regular daily pickup. It's $1 more
by the way.
If no response by Monday the local trashguys will have something to fill the
truck with. Email me direct at rhblake(a)bigfoot.com
We have lost our RT11v5.4B RX50 installation disks (we DO have a
license). Could anyone advise where or how to get new copies.

Flooding can be blocked if you take advantage of proxy bidding. Just decide
what your _maximum_ bid is, and enter that amount (near the end of the
auction, if you want, but not at the last second). Your actual bid will only
be the minimum increment above the next highest actual bid (and not
necessarily what you are willing to go up to). For example, when the high
bid is $20 and the increment is $1, you bid $50, and have an actual high bid
of $21. If someone floods with 10 bids of $1 each, you still win with a bid
of $41: you go $1 over each of the flood bids as each is made.

Another strategy that
is beginning to become commonplace is "last-minute flooding",
when a bidder will send 10 or 20 bids with the smallest value
increment within the last 10 seconds or so of the auction.

Have you seen http://www.irlp.net/? They are linking local amature radio

I just got back from out of state with another DEC haul. I filled my Astro van
to the roof with more docs software and misc before Mr. Landfill took them.
Whew! 42 hours with no sleep. I'm getting too old for this.
Anyway, I'm not even sure whats there yet but I did see a few versions of
Ultrix and VMS on many different media. It looks like it is mostly VAX stuff
and I will post it here when I have it inventoried.
A few things I did see while loading...
64Mb for the VAX 8700(box was labled as such)
Ultrix ver 1.0 on Magtape
Many RX50's with Ultrix
Lots of original sales flyers for Vax's
Brand new spare boards for the 750
New replacement RK05 heads
Lots of DECstations
A nice unexpected bonus was finding a PDP8a in the pile and in it was a RL8

We use earlier versions of RT-11 with RQDX3 controllers so you should have
no problem with support.
Hi Everyone, I realize it isn't classic and will probably get flamed for
this, however ... :-)
I have a "spare" Pentium III / 550Mhz processor in the SECC2 package (w/
Fan) and I also have a motherboard that is a socket 370 mobo. I need a
Socket 370 processor for this motherboard.
Does anyone care to trade this wonderful processor for a PGA version of the
Get your bids in early on this one. Its a rare Adaptec PDP-8e. Back in the 60's DEC licensed their PDP8 architecture to Adaptec to make exact replica's of their now infamous design. Sales were sluggish so they decided to make SCSI interfaces instead.
