2119RE: [midatlanticretro] Hobbyist DECnet Network - Update
- Jan 22, 2006For my setup at home, I was very unhappy with
Verizon's pricing. Business DSL comes in at around
$80/month with a static address and a lot of other
stuff I really don't need for playing with DECnet.
Comcast weighs in at $99. I called my old ISP in
Doylestown and went with a $25 dialup version. In fact
I am now looking for a vintage DEC modem so I can run
this dialup connection the old fashioned way once it
is up. Traffic seems to be quite low volume. If anyone
has a lead on a real DEC modem please let me know.
They appear on the World's Favorite Auction Site
periodically but I've not paid them much attention in
What infrastructure is currently available at the
museum site ? Is there existing telephone service with
inside wiring ?
