I have three VMS Alphas beside my desk.  The AS4100 is down until I find the
time to fix the depraved RTC chip, the AS400 is under powered crock with
inadaquate memory, but the AS500 is alive and well and running VMS 8.3 on
which I am typing this very epistle.  I have a coplete VMS 7.1 Doc set at
home and it is perfect bound so it takes up a lot less space than the grey

RWA was shocked that I proposed to recycle the grey wall and suggested that
I put it in his museum down the hall - below the pdp8/e front panel,
across from the Sun 4 CPU board, and slightly to the right of the ASR33
salvaged out of the Las Vegas IMP.  He also has the vacuum tube IBM module
that I picked up from some forgotten place.
