I also think, depending on the version of Multinet you are running it
should have the option to disable relaying. I know before I installed
PMDF (and used Multinet) I was able to do this. process.com (makers of
Multinet and PMDF) have really good documentation on their website that
you should be able to find the info you seek.
In lieu of that, if you're feeling adventerous ...
I think I remember you mentioning you were running VMS 5. Would PMDF run
on that? (when my Alpha is turned on, currently off as it needs a fan or
two) I run PMDF on my Alpha DS10 running OpenVMS 8.3 and I am able to
opps yepper large...
a pity not close..

I have a Vidar P-62 large format scanner available to anyone willing to

It has a SCSI interface. Drivers for Windows XP are available on the

I think it should be called the Icarus Project rather than the Pheonix
Project since Icarus flew too close to the sun and fell to his death in
compoarison to the Pheonix who dies in flames and rises from his own
ashes. I don't see much hope of this Pheonix rising any time soon.

I often travel internationally with strange looking electronics. If I am
questioned, I say that it is for my personal use during travel.
If you are bringing things that are very valuable, you can get a Carnet to
temporarily import items to the US and then export them without paying
duty. It is sometimes a painful process to find the right person at the
airport to stamp the Carnet on the way in and out, and often the customs
people have no idea what a Carnet is. The Carnet also costs more than $200
and requires a security deposit based on the value of the item.
I have a partial roll but it been outside inside an old hard copy unit for
about 5 years. I need reason you don't see them is they really do have
quite a bit if silver in them. Even in 1976 my employer at the time didn't
care and was doing pretty well of the scrap.

I know a few of us have bought from them before, my experiences have been
positive. I think the last thing I bought was a Teletype Model 33 ASR that
fell on its face, seller made a pretty good deal as it was local pick-up
and essentially it was a parts bucket at that point.
