Hello Bill,

 I'm in Houston and chase down DEC stuff. I've got a couple of uVAX
and a PDP-11/44. I (you) have just missed an 11/24 over in New Orleans
it was a good find but to far and big a load for me.

 I know where an VAX 11/750 is if you are willing to drive a ways.

Do you know of any sources for SMD drives? Like the sabers or eagles
used on suns a few years ago?

Are the Sun power supplies for powering SMD drives, I need one with -5V
at 6AMPs.

Regards, Mitch Wright
