Mouse doody

I feel your pain... My VAX 11/750 had mouse "evidence" all over its
interior when I got it--including, but not limited to, a full nest
on top of the console tape drive.

Didn't really think about the potential problems with urine...
But, with the exception of a bad RS-232 line receiver, which is
a common issue anyway, it works great.
