MicroVAX I update the 3rd, now being serialised in a local newspaper near you :)

More googling shows that the MV I and the MicroPDP can be very easily
interchanged since they share memory modules etc, so I dug out my 11/73 and
proceeded to spend a while tinkering with RT-11 again for the first time in
nearly 10 years - there were files on there I'd changed in april '94 :)
Looks like the RD54 (not the one I used as a load on the VAX) is possibly
fading 'cos I got some overlay errors, but anyway....

The PDP still runs fine with the M7551 memory from the VAX so I know it's
not a board issue I have with the VAX. Next thing to do I suppose is
'borrow' the PDP's cab to test the complete set of VAX boards, once I verify
the PSUs are the same. That's a job that needs a lot of space which I don't
have so I'll have to invade the kitchen next week when everyone else is out
the house and hope I don't run into problems :)
