! I agree. I think everyone that I associate with has at least one

        Yeah, if I see one for cheap enough, I'll let you know ;-) Then we
can set her up with (some OS) running Xwindows... Make that when, not if.
        I got my first, and so far only, VAX for $25.00 from here at work.
It doesn't seem hard to find a cheap one, for now at least...

        BTW, does anyone know of an empty VAX cabinet, something like the
11/780 VAXbar size, that's in need of dispo? In the CT (or VT, vacation
house up there) area.
        Some other similar classic computer cabinet would suffice, but a VAX
would be nice, for name recognition. I am honestly thinking on making my own
VAXbar for my computer-room/lounge in my house... Maybe some other
conversion. Add in a keg-erator?
