Useless? Why, specifically, do you say that?

It's a VAX. Appears to be a MicroVAX 3600, a KA650 or 655 based
MicroVAX-3. Slow by today's standards, but not so slow as to be
without application. It will run NetBSD or VMS very well, and...well,
it's a VAX, one of the most elegant processor architectures ever
designed. And not actually all that big, either.
