As I mentioned before, I had the opportunity to rescue the Unix system that
I first cut my teeth on, the ATT Unix PC, from the friend that I gave it to
in order for him to learn UNIX on. He had it in a storage bin for the past
4-5 years. He ended up going to the dark side in a big way, poor lad.
This is the machine that started it all for me, geared me up for landing my
first UNIX job, etc...
How I got it: My dad worked for ATT and they had a special offer for these
units to the employees, and he got me one!
It has 1 meg of RAM, a 20 meg hard drive and a 8086 daughterboard for
As of yesterday, it is back home now :):):). It is missing the springs for
under the space key, but I hope to scavenge a few keyboards for the right
parts. If anyone has a spare keyboard (or any other parts/paraphernalia)
from these units and want to get rid of them, let me know, it would be
mucho appreciated :)! I would especially be interested in OS media,
ethernet cards, memory expansion boards, bigger HD, anything to make it
more beefier or net-worthy.
And yes, it still boots (faster than most windoze machine IMHO)! And yes,
I still remembered the root password on it :p.
