Yeah, about 24 of them... every SBUS slot has a SCSI card of some sort in
it.  I'm wondering where this thing came from...  I'm thinking I'll want
to take out most of them, so it doesn't take 1/2hr to boot!

"I'm working on it."  It seems to have all the cards, including some
UNIBUS stuff in it, but I don't yet have any MASSBUS disks or UNIBUS disk
controllers that I've got disks for.  And I also don't have an TU58 carts
(although I've got images thanks to Michael Sokolov (if spelled
correctly)).  I've gotta set up a copy of TU58sim on something...when I
get some spare time.

BTW, this thing even has the FP accelerator board.  Time for some
high-speed number crunching! (yeah right :)

I've still got a link to info about it as a link off my website:
