Don't have anything that new; a C180 will run standard kbd/mouse and perepherals just fine.
What graphics do you have? HP jumped on the next big thing, the EVC connector, really fast.
I don't think anybody else did. Finding an adaptor can be fun-. The newer FX5/FX10s I believe have
The apps disk does appear to contain cc and cxx. Don't know if they have fixed license policies in place or if you just
are asked nicely to get a license from HP. To do that, you either (a) get a commercial software product for HP-UX developed or
(b) you send them a check for about $900. HP-UX does have all headers, so GCC is an option if you have cycles to burn
(don't even think of using anything less than GCC 3.3 - it seems to, um, "pessimize" programs on RISC architectures)
I'll play around with the C180 and check out the apps- I have more disk space there (wohoo! 6GB!)
I have the following DG books available, they appear to relate to an early

Thanks for the heads-up! And a fanstastic reference site.
A clarification regarding the pascal 3.0 / 3.1 / 3.2 software which I'm
looking for, it is HP Pascal for HP 9000 Series 200/300 machines. And is
anyone able to clarify whether the latest version was 3.5, as queried by
Bernd Kopriva in an earlier post?

I have a couple of multibus RAM boards I'm looking for
jumper info or schematics.
There's not much on the boards to identify the model
the first board:
62KB dram board
16 bit data path
the only marking (other than "INTEL") is PWA142779-006
The second board:
256KB dram board
16 bit data path
the original marking was PWA143156-045
this is struck out with black marker and
the number 133292-002 is written over it.
(this board may have been upgraded some time in its life)
I suspect both boards were part of an Intel MDS.
(there was an ICE in the pile that I wasn't able to save)

That's just wrong.
A loaded transformer isn't an inductive load, it's mostly the same type
of load as what is loading the secondary.
Zero crossing is the best place to turn on nearly any load, it may not
be the best place to turn off some loads but for on it is usually best.
If you turn on an inductive load at the zero crossing zero current will
flow. There will be no surge.
Unless there is a serious fault, and even then it is unlikely, you won't
saturate the core of a transformer regardless of how you switch it on.
I don't think I've seen anything later than 3.2. The 3.2 ref manual was from
Still sells it, their part number is 98617R. I suppose if someone were
curious enough, they could ask what rev that is.
They don't skimp, either - I was expecting HP-UX 11i base, but they send out the
Mission Critical OE.
I've got it going for a trial install in the G70. It's clicking along just fine so far.
I think when I'm done I'll investigate HP-UX 10.20 for 800s (if I can find it), perhaps
a bit faster on the old hardware. Other option would be the base 11i. For now, I'm throwing
the kitchen sink at it to see what happens (other than running out of disk space - 4GB (binary) isn't
quite enough for everything...
Question for the HP 9000/800 people - what is the eqivalent of the VAX "break to console" function (either
terminal-break or panel halt+halt)? (or the Sun L1-A) on these old beasts?
It takes quite a long time to bring up the PDC console from power-on.

Digi-Key has it for $14.95 for ten sheets,but they have a $25
minimum. However, if you order the GreenTRF at the same time, it
should push you pretty close to the $25.
For those folks who've had poor results with TT, did you seal the
toner with TRF before etching? And did you use a laminator or an
iron to transfer the toner image?
I'm slowly working my way up to trying this method myself, and am
really hoping for better results than I've read about here. But
don't expect them, unless I'm doing something different than others
who have tried it.
The attraction is, that while the circuit board houses just don't get
much cheaper than $4 - $5 per board for small boards, the TT can get
down to $.50 - $.75 each by my calculations. Of course, if 75% of
them must be discarded...
I just acquired an HP3000/922 (thanks Rob!) Is there anywhere that I
can find documentation on the h/w?
Is it possible to get MPE install media that would install on this
system (in case I want to do a fresh-install)?
