Me neither. I asked more in hope than in expectation!
I guess the VAX will have to make do with a brace of
9GB disks (assuming that a SCA-to-50pin converter
keeps it happy).

The next generation of storage backends seem to be IDE
(both PATA and, lately, SATA - at the cheap end, that is)
so maybe in a few years time I'll get something I can
drop into the Ultra as an upgrade!
