The OpenVMS Hobbyist License is available for any hobbyist
system.  If your specific system isn't listed, you can just
select one that's close.  If you don't have the system serial
number, you can make one up.

As for the license expiring after a year, you can renew before
expiration.  The license expiration was put in place, IIRC, to
gauge the interest in the program and get an idea of how many
systems were in use.
