  Thanks, The MATNET stuff is on original DEC tapes but the labels are
typed stick on labels not DEC labels.

  BTW I found a HUGE pile of computer stuff today at a NASA auction.
>>>>> 24,000 pounds <<<<<< of old computers including HP 2250,
somebodies system 32/2750, Vax 631, DEC RA 60(s), PDP 11/84, VAX 6310,
Honeywell Level 6 and lots more! No PCs in this lot, it's all mainframe
computer stuff. Most of it is in dumpsters and some of it looks fine, other
parts looks like they were opened with an axe! If anyone knows what any
of this stuff is or if it's worth anything let me know. If you're
interested in it send me an E-mail. I have a couple of days to send in a
bid. *****IF**** enough people are interested in it and are willing to
actually spent some money for it (and not expect me to buy it and give it
to them) then I will put in a bid for it. The stuff is located near Kennedy
space center in Florida and you'll have to make arrangements to get the
stuff before Feb. 12. I **DO NOT** have the man power, time, vehicles or
storage to move or keep it. This stuff is listed as scrap so it will be
CHEAP!! probably around 12 cents per pound.
