        If anyone feels that posting this to three groups constitutes
spamming, well, all I can say in my defense is that I felt all the DECfolk
who read these groups should know the good news. ;-)

        Check out this little snippet I got from the mailing list PORT-VAX
 for NetBSD...

        This isn't strictly a NetBSD thing but DEC and DECUS have just
announced that they are making hobbyist licenses for VAX/VMS available
for FREE through DECUS.

        Check the following URL for more info:

	Personally, I think this is TERRIFIC news! Both DEC and DECUS deserve,
in my eyes, a big round of applause for this.
	Anyway... I've already signed up for DECUS and checked out the Web
site. Soon as I get my DECUS ID number, I'm ordering both license and
media (the media kit on CD-ROM is only $30.00).
	Banzai! OpenVMS Lives!!!
OK Who has a 11/780 they don't need!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
