Adam sent me this information, contact him below if interested in these "rare and valuable" systems:
I have come across the following IBM system/23 models in good condition.
They were covered and stored in a clean attic since the mid-late 80's.
(1) 5322 - all-in-computer
(2) 5324 - modular computer
(2) 5242 - printer
(1) 5247 - external disk storage
(2) terminals - ???
We will probably store these until summer 2015 if we can't find a good home for them they might end up junked.

VERY ODD BURROUGHS PHOTO...2 story pile of data binders...Pasadena?
go to bottom of page.. seems to be a 2 story pile of data binders...
is this Burroughs Pasadena?
who are these people? I think we have the whole Burroughs office lined
this is from the Jack Aldridge collection at SMECC we finally got a
to scan larger negatives Ed Sharpe Archivist for SMECC email us please
we do not check the list all the time
So there's a PDP-8 for sale on eBay, and it's not up with a stupidly
massive BiN number, but an actual auction with a reasonable start price:
8's aren't my thing, but I'm sure someone here would be interested

I think he's just quoting the card numbers from the handles. Looks as though the whole (3-card) stack is there OK.
OK, so somewhat weekly questions.
Back in the days of high speed line printers there was a characteristic of
drum style printers that made the output print style quite distinct. What
was this characteristic?
I don't miss the noise of those devices and it seemed like no matter how
careful you were when changing the ribbon you would smudge your hands.
I have been trying to get my 2100 working. I have been using MOP to boot the
machine and try to install Ultrix, although this is not working for some
other reason at the moment. Until this morning, it was booting from MOP just
fine, but now it, after leaving the machine overnight and not doing anything
to it, I get this when I try to MOP boot:
Ultrixload - V4.5 Thu Sep 14 07:07:53 EDT 1995
Excptn pc: 0x807001f8
0xa13fbba8 : 0xaaaaaaaa 0x80701310 0xa0003b60 0x80700000
0xa13fbbb8 : 0xaaaaaaaa 0xaaaaaaaa 0xaaaaaaaa 0xaaaaaaaa
0xa13fbbc8 : 0xaaaaaaaa 0xaaaaaaaa 0xaaaaaaaa 0xaaaaaaaa
0xa13fbbd8 : 0xaaaaaaaa 0x80700048 0xa00039c8 0xaaaaaaaa
0xa13fbbe8 : 0xaaaaaaaa 0xaaaaaaaa 0xaaaaaaaa 0x00000000
0xa13fbbf8 : 0xaaaaaaaa 0xaaaaaaaa 0x00000001 0xa00039c8
The really strange thing is that if I attach a CD-ROM drive and boot off
that first, then try the MOP boot after that, the MOP boot works! Before
anyone asks, I have other problems which mean it won't successfully install
Ultrix from the CD-ROM, and I am trying the MOP route because of this. The
CD-ROM problem is something to do with the block size, I know about the
block size jumper and have tried with the jumper installed and removed.
I have a workaround which is to connect the CD-ROM, boot off the CD-ROM, let
the CD-ROM installation fail, then unplug power from the CD-ROM and boot
>from MOP. But that is horrible, and wasn't necessary until this morning.
I?m trying to find the high voltage power supply board for my old LaserJet IIp+ printer.
Several places claim to sell them, but as soon as you order, within a day or two, they are mysteriously ?out of stock, sorry for the error?.
A good used one would be fine.
thanks for any help.
Okay, I think I've gotten the SIMH image thing straightened out--and
I've added a descriptive record after the EOM marker in the image. Just
like a regular tape block; i.e. 32-bit little-endian length before and
after the description. To retrieve, just to to the end of the file,
read the last 4 bytes as a record length and then back up and read that
Same contents, FORTRAN 4.5; if anyone is interested, I have what
appears to be the 4.6 tape as well.
