I have recently resubscribed to this list!!
I too, am a Dec PDP collector. Most of my machines are of the newer  Qbus
variety and I only have one (working) Unibus machine. Is the old Classiccmp
list dead? I cannot get subscribed for love or money, there were quite a few
of the older pdp collectors there. (but you knew that!)
