ivan.Harhan.ORG is a VAX655 (3.8 VUPs) and runs httpd. ifctfvax.Harhan.ORG is
a VAX650 (2.8 VUPs) and runs httpd. OS is 4.3BSD-Quasijarus and httpd is IFCTF
httpd, formerly W3C httpd, formerly CERN httpd. The original.

Well, yeah, how else?... Aren't you already using your VAXen for all your most
essential mission-critical applications, as your sole computing platform and as
your main servers, as you should be? Well, OK, I guess not everyone is like
me... I do just the above. I have *NO* computers other than Classic ones.

I use SDI disks exclusively and have been doing so since 1999.


P.S. But then again, I'm not like most people. I'm a lot more principled.
