Mark P. Messinger is my new hero. he offered three PDP machines on this list
that i offered to pick up. i'm expecting, oh, here's all the bits, if you
get them all together they might work. (how PDP collectors usually give PDPs
away *grin*) but what i get, is i show up, and he boots the 11/23 up into
RT-11. wow. sure, the other two will take some work, but i get my instant
gratification from this 11/23. and a very well kept one. the BA23 it's in
is mint condition.
i'm the happiest geek alive.
but wait, it gets better. i also got several boxes of documentations. books,
binders, DECUS meeting tapes, a whole treasure trove. now i need some shelves
to display all this stuff and make it easily accessable.
thank you very much mark. and feel good in knowing that these items have gone
to a very good home. i will treasure them always.
if anyone is ever in central PA, stop by and visit this guy, the stories he
has to tell are wonderful, i only wish we would have had more time to stay
and chat, but, maybe some other day.
now i gott learn RT-11. :)
