Rumor has it that Seth Morabito may have mentioned these words:

>I'm looking for a DECstation 5000, a fairly recent and marginally
>classic MIPS workstation DEC sold in the early 1990s. (Well,
>it's classic to me for nostalgia reasons, but I won't get into
>that). I'm specifically looking for a 5000/133 or /150, but
>really any 5000 will do.
>I'd be happy to pay shipping and a reasonable price (reasonable being
>something in the < $50 range, since that seems to be the going rate),
>and/or I have a MicroVAX 3100 (desktop case, 16MB RAM, 1GB disk,
>8 serial lines) I'd be happy to trade.

I believe I have one... I have no idea as to what it has onboard, but I
could check. I don't know if I have a functioning keyboard/mouse for it,
but I do have the video cable, and quite possible a monitor for it if you need.

I could check 'er out & let you know what it's got...

Trade is good, but I've got a couple MVax 3100's, and a couple of
VaxStation 3100's (one packed to the *gills* - it really is a dream
system...) -- anything SS50 or S100 bus, 6809 or 68K-ish... ;-)

I'll let you know what it's got after I get home tonite...
