SIMMS are the new stuff -- lets talk old, like:
1 meg X 1 bit DRAM in a 20 pin DIP package. I bet most of that has ended

CDCheck looks like what I need. I can do two checksum files (one on
each directory) and compare the results.
Thanks a lot for the suggestion.

These days, when I put together a data CD, I use CDCheck to
build a CRC file for it. Once the CD is burned, I verify using
the same tool to be sure it all made it onto the CD.
I use MD5SUM too, but that does one directory at a time
(AFAICT) so it is a little less useful.

Joe R. was asking about Matrix cards
We used to have a VME based x-ray film scanner that was a Matrix
product, it was a prototype. If I remember correctly I think Matrix was
based in California and made film cameras and scanners for industrial
applications. Our initial unit had a VME controller with a micro PDP-11
as the network interface. I think I have the micro PDP-11 somewhere in
Looks like Agfa purchased them.
Funny you should mention Windiff. After reading the responses today
I was going to use Windiff to compare the directory printouts produced on
both machines and see if there's a difference in the output.
But thinking about it, Windiff has the ability to directly compare
directories. If I point it at the top "parent" on each machine I should be
able to see differences right away.
I guess then the final test would be comparing the MD5's on each
directory to ensure file integrity.
Any good MD5 utilities for Windows that will handle large file sets?
I downloaded two today but one is a file-by file MD5 and the other doesn't
recurse down the directory tree...it only does the current directory.

Rich, one word: windiff. It's in the NT resource kit, and I think it's in

Another IT department here at Caltech (not mine) is looking to unload
an IBM "mainframe". Details of the configuration are listed below.
I believe they are willing to entertain offers of "I will take it
away", if made fairly soon. If you are serious, contact me off list
and I will put you in touch with the right folks.

I've gotten a pile of emails this morning, so after I sort through who

I'll post up.

I shipped one a while back. I broke it down into two parts, the teletype
and the base. I packed each in their own box. I got boxes that were a
good bit larger than the part to be packed, and IIRC, then lined the
boxes with formed FedEx boxes (the free ones you get from them) to act as
stiffeners. Then lined the interior of the now "double box" assembly with
bubble wrap. Then heavily wrapped the item in layers of bubble wrap. Then
placed it into the box, filled the voids, put on the top layer of lining
boxes, then taped it shut.
I think the total cost was something like $40 or $45 per box to go from
NJ to St Louis (it was probably 2 years ago, but I seem to recall it was
something in that range... I think the boxes were about 65 lbs each

I used FedEx Ground, simply because I had a FedEx account, and they were
willing to do it cheaper then UPS.

Um... I can't help you there, I honestly hadn't thought about that issue
until you asked it here. Now I am worried that I caused the thing to be
trashed in shipping because I failed to bolt something in place.
(Probably not, or I'm sure Jay would have complained)
