I'm back!

        Yes, I have returned. Lord Almighty, what a haul!! I can say with
confidence that I definitely tested the maximum load specs for the (rented)
Ford Windstar minivan. Every time I went over a good bump, the rear springs
-almost- bottomed out.

        I'll be updating my web page soon with the gory details. Suffice to say
I've got more than enough to keep me going, project-wise, well into next
year. Among the more 'classic' items in the haul were a Kennedy 9100 tape
drive installed in a nice 5-foot DEC rack, and a box full of 9-track tapes
containing mostly DECUS RT-11 SIG libraries.

        Tony, I know you'll get a kick out of this. I also got hold of another
11/44 CPU box, loaded with cards (including a Unibus UDA50 disk
controller). Between that one and my current unit, I should be able to get
the power supply going AND fix the broken one for a spare!

        Since I'm not heavily into RT-11 (yet), I'd like to offer the RT-11 SIG
tapes to whoever's interested and willing to pay shipping. There's about
six or so, maybe a couple more.

        And would you believe I'm already planning next year's run?

        I know I'll see at least some of you at VCF in another couple of months.
Until then...

        Banzai! ;-)
