Maybe you could take a vacation to Oregon and meet up with Keven
Miller and get him to convert your tapes to SIMH format for you while
you watch and then wipe any intermediate storage to your satisfaction.
Or just come up with some sort of non-disclosure agreement that would
meet your requirements (bonus points for using a 1980s HP Confidential
Disclosure Agreement form (which no manager at HP could ever fill out
And then when you get home you can make a nice virtual simulated
Series III and restore whatever you want to play with.
Beware of the possibility of delamination and other issues for old
9-track tapes depending on age/manufacturer/storage. Another reason it
might be good to get help from someone with experience in reading very
It would be fun to see the Forum up and running again.

Heh!? Now that I have calmed down..I? do wish I had kept a? separate dump of? just bbs
systems. For 2000 and 3000. And the multi user space war game.
Actually the 3000 full volume of everything I ever did or said? was discovered in the
garage at home 1? year or maybe more back.
The 800 bpi? tapes for 2000 I knew I had somewhere. But onlyvtefound again last winter
and...? in reality it was a miracle they were? saved.
We haveca Hp 918 that? was recently put of service? And a hp 37 that I assume that still
bopys boots? that were graciously? contributed? but the big stumbling block is.
TAPEDRIVES!? WELL.I HAVE A DDS-3 CART ON 918 BUT NO WORKEE WITH REEL TAPES @
I AM GETTING PRETTY. OLD NOW? BUT IN THE FEW YEARS I HAVE LEFT WOULD LIKE TO GET BOTH BBS
SYSTEMS BACK OUT THERE
THE 2000 VERSION? HAD A REGULAR VERSION. THAT MIGRATED INTO A FANITSY? THEMED VERSION
BOTH SHOLD BE ON 800 bpi TAPE(This tape set had hardest storage conditions
The 3000 version? should gave? both converted versions of the 2000? bbs's. Plus The
Forum/3000. massive even more? and no non nonsense? but even more? massave in features and
Security is totally killer on all.There us no way I would be able to recreate? these
systems? now due to some brain slowing? but if you have not noticed? I do not type well at
all.. part coordination? part tfu hand and finger movement( thanks to those who take time
to decipher? what I type ( I worked had to make? this and previous message? readable )
Anyway seems maybe easiest way? is with simulators? once we get a 800 1600 built tape
drive on it..
As always any help ...ideas..hardware appreciated But keep in mind.? Transfer has to take
place HERE!Ed Sharpe archivist For SMECC
