Sorry to disappoint you, but these will be for some model of Cray, either a later
Y-MP, EL or T3 system, as we never had any Sun servers of that style at NCAR.
I'll be working on extracting the tape contents into a file system this weekend to
better determine what they contain.

Yes, I think so! Is it available in an "emailable" form? If not,
perhaps someone with a running system can create an image and put it

FEBRUARY 21, 2014 --- KansasFest 2014, the Apple II convention, is
scheduled for July 22 --27 in Kansas City, Missouri.Margot Comstock,
co-founder and editor of the much-loved /Softalk /magazine, will join us
with a keynote presentation.
Comstock and Al Tommervik founded /Softalk /in 1980 to share the
hardware, software, and people behind the Apple II.At its peak,
/Softalk/ had 250,000 readers and uniquely offered broad and deep
coverage of everything Apple II related, including programming, game
playing, business use, and home use.Later, Softalk Publishing produced
magazines for the emerging Macintosh and IBM markets,/ST.Mac/ and
/Softalk for the IBM Personal Computer/./Softline/, a game magazine
begun by Ken William's OnLine Systems and later renamed to /ST.Game/,
was Softalk Publishing's second longest-lived magazine.Softalk Books
published several books by the magazine's columnists and a Mac book by
The Apple II magazine ran for four years before industry changes and
expenses led management to cease publication.In that time, /Softalk/
earned many loyal fans, and a group of volunteers is working to archive
and share issues.The Smithsonian Institution recognizes Comstock and
Tommervik as pioneers of the microcomputer revolution and /Softalk/ as a
chronicle of that revolution.
KansasFest is an annual convention offering Apple II users and
retrocomputing enthusiasts the opportunity to engage in beginner and
technical sessions, programming contests, exhibition halls, and
camaraderie. KansasFest was originally hosted by Resource Central and
has been brought to you by the KFest committee since 1995. Any and all
Apple II users, fans, and friends are invited to attend this year's
event. Registration details will be announced on the KansasFest Web site
in early 2014. For photos, videos, and presentations from past
KansasFests, please visit the event's official Web site at
I have a ADDS Viewpoint 3A Plus terminal that is in working condition. It
looks very clean, powered up and operated in the local mode. I just took it
out of the box and haven't tested the RS-232 serial link yet. It includes
the operator's manual and service manual. (I will put the manuals on
bitsavers.) I reducing my collection and am looking for a new home for this
terminal. I am located in the Seattle area and am not interested in shipping
it. (30 plus pounds.)
Among some old DAT tapes I am looking at, I have what appears to be some
ufsdump format backup tapes from two Cray Operator Workstation (OWS)
servers of year 2000 vintage, possibly from two Y-MP EL systems? These
OWS servers ran Solaris.
The tape for ows9607 contains 524MB of backups of the following file systems:
/, /usr, /var, /opt, /opt/CYRIdump and /usr/openwin. The second tape contains
828MB of backup of ows9630 and may not contain the contents of /opt/CYRIdump.
Does anyone know of a copy of ufsrestore that runs on Linux? If not, I'll have
to see if the netbsd restore under stands it or grab the OpenIndiana (OpenSolaris
Anyone interested in the contents of these tapes?
To my great surprise and considerable pleasure, I've just sold an NEC
Multispin 3X CD for ?8.50 on eBay.
I was less delighted to find a similar unit that I'd misplaced in the garage.
So, if anyone wanted one and missed out...
