[rescue] I want a VAX

I have a uVAX II right now, with no working disk setup, and a questionable
network adapter.
(Where disk setup == hard drive controller, disk, or cables to use with it.)

Basically I have a chassis with the ka630 and ram, nothing else.

Prices on qbus scsi cards I've been quoted have been *insane.*

If I had the time and expertise I'd design one with one of the uni's FPGA
boards-- but that'll never happen.

Right now the vax is just sitting in the undergrad computer lab as a joke.

Any advice?
