I've always wanted a 4000-700A, as one (upgraded from a -300A, I think it
was) running OpenVMS 5.5-1 was my first exposure to non-PC non-Mac
stubradfowc at mercur.usao.edu. *sniff*
oh wow, it still exists:

The web server I setup on that system in 1995 was USAO.EDU's first ever
campus webserver. Up until about a year ago, some of the pages on their
site (now hosted from a Sun box of some sort) were the original ones I'd
done in '95 as a summer credit project. :)
When I started in '93, they had a T1 and were using it for email. By the
time I left, they had Usenet, decent mail software (PINE), and I'd corrupted
the masses by showing everyone about IRC. Ahh, the days.
