On a similar note, I tried to contact S and H about a
licence for my
install of TSX+ on my PDP-11. I've got install disks for up to 6.4 (I
think, need to check) but not the instructions and release notes. I sent
a couple of emails asking if they would either say it was cool for me to
keep it, or ask me to buy a licence (because I buy software that I use,
even if it is for toys). I never ever got a response.
So I don't know if they are just keeping quiet because they are ignoring
me, or keeping quiet because they don't care about TSX+ for the PDP-11 any
more (they do sell an i386 version, it seems). I don't want to give out
copies of the disks I have either, unless I know it's cool with them.
I contacted S&H ("Harry Sanders" <hsanders at sandh.com>) in April,
asked if I could have a copy of the "final" version of TSX-Plus to "play
with" as a collector on a real PDP-11. We had a great conversation - and he
emailed me a "master" ZIP file containing:

These ZIPs contain the TSX Plus system files, docs, applications, etc. I also
found out the they "lost" the source code to TSX Plus when changing system
You can contact Harry (email above) or I'll be glad to contact him again to
see if I can generally release the "TSX.ZIP" he sent me (If others are
