Hey, Digging around I found some more stuff that I had forgotten about. Note these are the original, HP 9-track, 1/2 inch, 1600 BPI, tapes. They are NOT copies. All had been stored indoors in a climate controlled environment and should be 100% readable. Some of the reels are 600 ft, some are 1200 ft, some are 2400 ft. -- HP-PA support for the series 800 tapes 1/2 and 2/2P/N 82436-13500 REV A.B8.00 DATE CODE 3113support format--  -- HP-UX 8.0 INSTALLHP9000 HP-UX Series 800 tape 1/1P/N 82436-13509 REV A.B8.00 Date Code 3113Install format--  -- MPE/V Release 40 Patch for the HP 3000P/N 32033-10469 tape 1/1NMSTORE FORMAT--  -- MPE/IX COBOL 5.5 COMP. for the HP30006250 BPI MNSTORE FORMAT tape 1/1P/N B3845-10007 REV A.10.25--  -- MPE/IX COBOL 5.5 RTS. for the HP30006250 BPI MNSTORE FORMAT tape 1/1P/N B3847-10007 REV A.10.25--  -- MPE/IX COBOL 5.5 DEV. for the HP30006250 BPI MNSTORE FORMAT tape 1/1P/N B3843-10007 REV A.10.25--  -- MPE V Release 3PFOS Tape tape 1/1 SYSDUMP formatP/N 32033-10452 REV G.3P.00 Date Code 3419--  -- MPE V RELEASE 40 for the HP3000Turbo update  tapes 1/2 and 2/2P/N 32033-10461 and PN/32033-10462 REV G.40.00TU Format (I don't think you can boot this format)--  -- HP9000 Series 800CUSTOMIZED HP-UX CORE and SUBSYSTapes 1/3, 2/3, and 3/3Release 0800 VUF A.B8.00. UPDATE Format I think the customized label is because I had ordered these tapes from HP many years ago. Since support had expired, the additional software that's on the tapes does not require passwords to install. As I recall, the tapes include HPBASIC, COBOL, FORTRAN, RPG, and possibly some other programs. I could be wrong so don't hold me to it.--  -- MPE V Release 3P for the HP3000SUBSYS TAPE Store FORMATTapes 1/2 and 2/2P/N 32033-10455 Rev G.3P.00 Date Code 3419--  Feel free to make an offer but, as with my other stuff, I am not giving them away. I suspect these are pretty rare so, be generous with your offers. Because of packing and shipping, I'd prefer to see all of them go to one place. See ya, -- Steve Robertsonsteerex at ccvn.com
