Hi all...

Space is getting to be a problem here and I am mostly into home/hobby micros
from the 70s and 80s (thats what I grew up with) but could not pass this
up...since I hear so many discussions about DEC on this newsgroup...

I dont think the models and equipement are rare, but getting any kinda DEC
stuff up here in Montreal, for free, in perfect cosmetic and working
condition with tons of software is rare...for me anyways...I guess the trick
was tracking down some older ex DEC employees around here...

Vaxstation 4000 VLC
Vaxstation 4000 - 60
Storage Expansion with tape drive
DEC mouse
VRT19-HA monitor
and a few cables...

No missing parts, no cracks, no broken doors...

I only see occasionnal DEC stuff at a scrap/surplus computer place here and
its always in very bad shape...and owner always asks for $s in the "what???"

I dont really know this equipement...but fun to explore I guess...

And the guys says : oh!....I have more DEC...way more at one of my houses if
you are interested...! I guess I might be...
