Wanted: DEC Lisp PAK

Oh, I've spoken to the good folks at Encompass and Montagar. (No-one directly
at Compaq has ever replied to my emails.) There is apparently an Intellectual
property issue that prevents them from including the old DEC Lisp in the free
list. It also has to do with the fact that DEC stopped shipping the product in
1993. Hence, I'm trying to see if I can find someone with the old piece of
paper so that I could convince Compaq to let me transfer the license to me.

I'm just a nut who would like to legally run some antique software.

As for faking the license, I don't know of anyway to hack out the PAK system...

You better watch out    What you wish for;
It better be worth it   So much to die for.
