Jerome Fine replies:

>From information gleaned from a number of sources, including Tim
Shoppa himself (TIM NOT TOM), Tim is providing support
for a $ 10 Billion system of some sort which likely uses VMS.
I don't think I can be any more accurate that the above description
and it may be exaggerated a bit, but from what I know of Tim's
background, the hardware controlled by the computer may well
have cost that much.

As such, Tim has almost no time for anything else except his family.

As for the CDs which you requested, you did not specify RSX or
RT-11. If the latter, I can help since I now have a CD burner.

Does anyone else have copies of the RSX-11 set of 2 CDs?

Sincerely yours,

Jerome Fine
If you attempted to send a reply and the original e-mail
address has been discontinued due a high volume of junk
e-mail, then the semi-permanent e-mail address can be
obtained by replacing the four characters preceding the
'at' with the four digits of the current year.
