Weekend Aquisitions

Went to a computer service warehouse that was going out of business. For the
cost of buying the cleanup crew lunch, I picked up:

-A box of DEC manuals
-An AlphaServer 2000 4/200(!)
-System boards for a VAX 8200 and 7000
-Licenses and media for DEC OSF/1 (AXP)
-A few VAXStations
-Misc RX model drives
-A replacement drive module for an RA-82 that looks like a car transmission.
-Video boards for DECStation 5000s

If I would have had a U-Haul I swear I would have picked up the 11/780. Ever
seen the power connector for that thing? Looks like you wire it directly to
a high tension power line. I couldn't get into it to swipe the cpu cards
because I didn't have the special torx-wrench thing, but I almost convinced
the driver of the hi-lo to pry it open. Now it's destined for the
scrap-metal melter :(
Happy holidays and I hope your scavenging is as fruitful as mine!
