I have a Sun 3/50 diskless workstation in the Boston area, which I'd
like to see go to a good home.? I no longer have the monochrome monitor
that went with it, but I do have the original keyboard and mouse.? It
hasn't been powered up in some time, but worked without problems until I
took it out of service.
? Contact me at guy.fedorkow at gmail.com if you're interested?
Today I found a TEAC MT-2R cassette tape drive on a radio amateur
flee market. These tape drives use a tape cassette similar to the
audio tape cassette. The MT-2R tape deck has servo control logic
for tape motion and a CPU with firmware taat makes the tape unit
a block-addressable device (AFAIK).
However, I can only find doc of the MT-2ST, but that is another MTU.
Does anybody have doc of the TEAC MT-2R ?
I have been experimenting with a SCSI21SD V6 card trying to get it to work
on a VAX 4000-200 running VMS 5.4 using a KZQSA. It seems to recognise that
there is a SCSI device there, but any attempt to access the device from VMS
5.4 results in a Fatal Drive Error. I tried booting a VMS 7.3 image from the
SCSI2SD card and that worked.
Obviously I have played with some of the settings, like SCSI2 mode etc, but
I have not found anything that works. Has anyone succeeded in getting this
board to work on VMS 5.4?
Hi all --
Anyone happen to have any documentation for the Andromeda VDC-11? This is
a dual-height qbus board that provides 512x256 graphics and can act as the
PDP-11's console device (it emulates various different terminals, depending
on the model of the VDC-11). I'm interested in programming information as
well as jumpers and connector pinouts.

I was wondering if I could get some photos of assorted old terminals displaying Frotz running Infocom games. I'm particularly interested in seeing the VT52, VT100, LA36 / LA120, ASR33, and TVI-910 like this.

Many years ago I gave away some PDP 11/60 hardware to someone on this
list but don't recall who it was (Ethan maybe?). Anyway, I have recently
discovered a stack of various print sets that I believe went with that
system and would like to send them along. If you recall that long past
transaction (10 years ago maybe? More? Less? Don't recall exactly, old
age is killing my memory) please contact me so I can make arrangements
for these. And if you aren't interested please let me know so I can see
if anyone else is interested in them.
David, If you need a home for these,? I have 2 complete 11/60's and would dearly like to have them.
12016-60002 - SE Cable - card edge connector to 50-pin low density bail
lock (M) - 2m (6.6ft) long
If anyone has any of these, let me know, I can use about 4 of them.

Thanks for the info on chip made by Texas Instruments. It was used in a
pocket/plug-in calculator I had while working as a payroll clerk back in
the early 70s.
The link is: http://www.vintagecalculators.com/html/ti_cal-tech1.html
I?ve written in my book on the History of the Microcomputer a history of
the processing chip as the timeline follows an approximation of:
Late *1950*s ? patent on integrated circuit by Texas Instruments
*1950*s to *1960*s ? move from vacuum tubes to TTL technology
programs/functions in ROM
*1970*s ? 4004 to 8008 to 8086 -> This begins the era of electronic
computerization of society.
-> programmable by user and/or firmware
We are now in the early human era of the electronification-computerization
of society. *Classic Computing* takes us back to the very early years.
Back in 1965 Jack Kilby, Jerry Merryman and James Van Tassel at texas
Instruments created an integrated circuit designed to replace the
calulator. Historians, though not all, credit this development as the
beginning of the electronic-computing revolution that was truly underway by
the mid-70s. Vintage/classic computing our hobby goes back that far as us
baby-boomers can attest to.
Happy computing all!
