Yowsa! So the auction was held at a think tank that does do secret research
so it should not have eluded me so, but a fellow engineer pointed out, and
all the signs are there, I've got a "Tempest" qualified uVAX III! This
friend said the extreme grounding inside the case, the seamless design, and
the steel wool enmeshed in the air filters was his clue. It is the weirdest
(and heaviest) rack mount chassis for its size that I've ever lifted!

So the BA23 that I pulled yields another Dilog ESDI controller (yay!) and a
(VCB02?) QDSS 8 plane graphics subsystem (w/cab kit) another KA650 and
another 16MB of RAM and another 4 channel serial I/O card.

Such fun, now to start testing this stuff to see if it works. I've got
enough stuff for a first rate VAX Cluster here.
