Inspired by recent posts, I wonder if it would be an idea to set up a database of who has what, so we can poll resources etc. It should not "just" contain who has which drives, but also controllers, software, special cables, formatters, ....
In my case, I have a tape controller from Microtech Conversion systems, model TAPE816, but neither info (e.g. strapping) nor software. I also have 4-5-6 cables with 50-pin sub-d connector on one end, and edge connectors on the other end. They are not identical, but I cant for the life of me remember which cable connects to which controller.
