I have many DEC files that I?ve recovered from old VMS backups to a PC.
Many are Word-11, ALL-IN-1 WPS and VMS Mail MAI files.
They don?t open well in programs like the Windows Text editors
Is there a program on Windows that can open these files and recognize all of the formatting and control commands so they can be properly viewed?
Hi all --
I picked up a Sanders 720 terminal -- well, the display/keyboard portion
anyway -- and I'm looking for actual hardware documentation so I can maybe
someday replicate the 701 control unit (or heck, maybe someone has a 701
sitting around somewhere...). Anyone out there have docs (apart from the
brochures already on bitsavers) or any parts lying around?
Thanks as always!

What is the experience with the SCSI2SD with old computers? It looks to be
SCSI-1 and SCSI-2 compatible and I see a lot of reports of usage on this
list. I am curious about how well it works and which version to get.
Versions up to 5 seem to be GPLed and reasonably available. V6 does not
seem to have schematics or boards open sourced and I haven't seen a
supplier for them. The web page lists some sources, but they don't have the
It looks like the V6 is not open because someone used the design without
following the GPL.
V6 claims synchronous transfers, but I don't think most of my hardware
supports it. That consists of VAXstations and qbus scsi cards. If I was
after speed I wouldn't be using old hardware, but the speed has to be
consistent with the era.
One last short reminder ... VCF PNW 2019 is this weekend!
