 Well, that's sort of my [untutored] view too, but hey. I guess it's
what you want & when. He's doing strictly PDP stuff, so the VAX boards
are gathering dust.
 I also forgot to ask the other pertinent question. Assuming I can
replace the DEQNA ethernet adapter, do I *need* local disks? I'm
thinking a TK50, and a remote filesystem. MFM drives have never tripped
my trigger.
