Just wanted to let folks on the list know....
1) I am putting some spam-related keyword searches on posts to both lists.
This is an effort to make my pseudo-daily moderation of posts easier,
because the lists get a LOT of spam I have to filter out manually.
2) I would rather not post the specific rules I am putting in place in case
a spammer has subbed to the list. Be just be advised that I would recommend
that everyone be a little cognizant of the subject line of the message that
they post. Messages which trigger the spam list will be rejected.
3) To my knowledge, all reported bugs/issues since the switchover to the
upgraded mailman software have been addressed. If anyone feels there are
still outstanding issues please email me directly. There is still some
tweaking to sendmail to be done, and I need to regen the archives after
getting rid of some posts and including some missing posts, that I am
already aware of.
Now, back to old computers :)

what is the price for this item

Does anyone have access to V5.01A of RT-11? I would prefer
the RL02 image which has a Volume ID / Owner of:
However, any other media would be great if the RL02 image is
I already have V5.00, V5.01, V5.01C (V5.01B does not exist)
and V5.02 of RT-11. So it is ONLY V5.01A of RT-11 that
I do not have. All of these distributions (any prior to V5.03) are
allowed to be used under the Supnik emulator by hobby users of
RT-11, so It would be "nice" to be able to have all of the versions
that are allowed and make them available to other hobby users.
If you attempted to send a reply and the original e-mail
address has been discontinued due a high volume of junk
e-mail, then the semi-permanent e-mail address can be
obtained by replacing the four characters preceding the

Data General also had a delightful small two reel 7" tape drive also. Used
with the Nova series of computers
BASF Endura is good tape. It shouldn't delaminate.
When I got boxes of new tape I looked for a reseller in the back of Processor
Magazine that specializes in tape. Shipping is a killer though.
I was never able to sell a box of 7" reels of tape (1200') though. No one

A slip of my mind, I'm sorry to say.
I forgot to ask Fred if he could host the document. It is there for the time being, but as it probably is going to be around for a long time, we need someone who can have this document on-line.
The document is at present on my FTP server, but I would prefer a more "regular" archival function
The small rack-mount tape drive from DEC is the TS03.
By joke, the "TS" was for "Tape Stretcher" as the TS03
did not have a sort of vacuum column, but just a roller
with a spring to keep the tape tensioned.

Could you zip the files? This will "hide" the exe. By the way, what is the size of the archive?

I don't know if its any form of blasphemy to do this. But for only $40,
you can get a prebuilt convertor of standard PS/2 keyboard + mouse to
proprietary SGI keyb/mouse bus for Indigo/Crimson. (The dude says Onyx
uses them too, but I was kinda sure that was PS/2 like Indy. No matter)
The adaptor guarantees an endless supply of working Granite keyboards and
mice from Indys and upwards.
I'm not a representative of the guy at all, but I think its damned useful
and I figure some of you might too:

I've updated my Wang 2200 emulator to version 1.1. It has been about
six months since the last update.
This release adds two signficant features:
1) disk support. You can now plug in disk controllers, each of
which can control two drives. Drives can be any legal size, and the
timing can model that of 5.25" or 8" floppies, or hard disks (even the
interleave factor is modelled). You can optionally turn of the emulated
timing and make it run as fast as possible.
2) when an error message is displayed on the screen (which are just
two digit codes), double click on that line and a detailed explanation
will pop up. the explanations come directly from the Wang BASIC manual.
Adding the first feature was a lot of work. I started with the
microcode dump from the disk controller and a document describing the
microarchitecture (believe it or not, the 2200 has a 4b ALU and the disk
controller has an 8B ALU). From there, I wrote a disassembler and
studied the listing until I thought I understood the protocol. I
implemented it and ironed the wrinkles out of my assumptions.
Please have a look if you are interested.
Cool error message feature, in relaxing Wang green:
The program is a Win32 executable. Source code is online.
